DUO BeachWalker Restoration

Antonio999usAntonio999us Posts: 90 Deckhand
Hello Florida's Anglers

I hope you were doing well, and you have had the chance to go fishing many times during these months of 2013.

Maybe some of you remembered the last post I did around January, where I told you about my experience fishing Flounders in the shores next to my beach house. Well, I continued fishing more of those extraordinary fishes with the same lure and I enjoyed a lot.
(Just to let you know, I practice catch & release keeping only less than 20% of my captures).

Unfortunately my lovely lure, the BeachWalker 120MD S11 got all scratchy as the consequence of lots of castings and many captures, and its destiny was the graveyard.

I always thought the possibility to restore my lures, but given that I don’t have the right materials and tools I never did before.

Finally I decided this week to try it, and here I bring for you my rookie restoration video. It is a very simple video, but I would like to receive your comments and suggestions to improve my restoration process. I had many DUO lures and it is a lot of money invested in them, so I would like to extend their fishing lives.

Well, thank you for your attention, have a save fishing, regards Antonio

Probably some of you remember this picture, but this time I marked the extraordinary S11. I captured many flounders like these ones in the picture with the same lure, while other anglers did not.

    Hello Drag Screamer
    Thank you for your comment regarding the restoration of my DUO S11 ...
    On the other hand, actually I do not build model tanks or planes anymore. I used to do a lot when I was a teenager, and some years ago I began to build again twin-motored planes from WWII, but I have to stop due lack of time. Now, what I am trying to do is to collect two Grait Britain brands (Dinky Toys and Corgi Toys) that I had when I was kid. Those are the ones you saw in the background on the shelves.
    Kind regards, Antonio

    Not bad! You may have motivated me to fix up about 6 or so yozuris that have been sitting in my junk drawer, lol

    Hello Tarpoonfly49 ... I am very happy that you have motivated to repair your lures. I really enjoy all this stuff of fixing, repairing and doing my own flies, spoons and jigs, by myself while I not go for fishing. To me, all this is part of fun.
    Please let me know how did you do with your Yo-zuris...

    On the other hand, have you tried the new Yo-zuris Crystal 3D Prism ??? they are really good. Maybe, the lures do not have the cast advantages like the DUOs, but they are really good. I bought around 60 Yo-zuris a month ago in BassproShop to upgrade my Yo-zuri team lures ... they work well, I can recommend them to you.
