I know that a can of spray paint will work. What are some other ways to do it?
Agree with above. Very easy, cheap, durable. Jig heads, even spoons. Let your imagination go wild. Doesn't work out so well with Corkies though, unless you like them melted. oops.Powder coating weights netcrafters has everything and youtube . I use heat gun and dip weight in powder and then dry in oven . Not really hard once set up correctly and fun to do .

One of the old salts I grew up fishing with uses orange ones and has for as long as I can remember. At one time he couldn't find them anymore and I painted a bunch of them up for him. He still uses them under regular unweighted popping corks.Back in the day tbey used to sell torpedo weights painted hot pink. We would use those under a popping cork with live shrimp. Have not seen those in years. I watched a youtube video. Ordered the supplies and will post some pics when done.
I agree with ya on inshore stuff. I've never found any difference between a plain and pink jig head. I do think it can make a difference offshore. For kings and spanish it seems to give them something to aim for especially on a live or dead bait rig and prevents them from cutting the wire as often.Im not even sure it's worth to do at all.. I've never seen a difference in catch rate with color of the head. The weight of the head and other variables probably help the presentation and putting it in front of fish more than just the color. Grey seems to work fine for me. That said.. if coloring them helps your confidence then by all means color away. Confidence helps us present the bait better and be more ready when we get a strike.
IF you want to get fancy with it, offshore jigs are sealed with a UV cure resin or two part epoxy.Back in the day tbey used to sell torpedo weights painted hot pink.

Just take another jighead and use the hook to poke the paint out of the eye.
I have not had good luck with those weights like that where the swivel is poured in the lead. I bought a bunch of them once to rig up popping corks and the swivels would eventually pull out of the lead costing you fish.
There are reason behind design. However , very few companies ever make an original design based on a concept for improving catch rates .. most companies , like say Patrick Sabile , simply troll Instagram and Facebook looking for the newest idea with the most likes and copy that idea ..with their own extra flair... then claim they designed somethingSince when does anything in the lure business have to make sense or make a difference to catching fish?.
