To clean fishing lures, you’ll need a few supplies including some old toothbrushes, a bucket, dish soap, and a small brush. First, put your lures in the bucket and fill it with hot water. Add a squirt of dish soap and let the lures soak for a few minutes.

Next, use an old toothbrush to scrub off any dirt or grime that’s on the lure. Be sure to go over all the nooks and crannies so the lure is completely clean. Finally, use the small brush to remove any leftover debris before rinsing the lure off with fresh water. Your lures will be good as new and ready for their next fishing adventure!

Assuming you’re fishing in freshwater, there are a few different ways you can clean your lures.

If you’re using soft plastic lures, one way to clean them is to simply put them in a Ziploc bag with some water and a tiny drop of dish soap. Close the bag and let the lures soak for a few minutes before rinse them off with clear water.

Another method is to use an old toothbrush (or a dedicated lure brush) to scrub off any dirt or gunk that’s build up on the lure. Once you’ve given it a good scrub, rinse the lure off with clear water.

If your lure is particularly dirty or stink, you may want to soak it in a mixture of water and vinegar for a few minutes before scrubbing and rinsing it off.

Whatever method you use, be sure to dry your lures off before storing them away – otherwise they may rust or degrade prematurely.

There are a few ways to clean fishing lures, depending on the type of material they are made from. For example, if your lure is made of metal, you can simply wash it with soap and water, then dry it off. You can also use a mild abrasive, such as aluminum foil, to remove any stubborn dirt or debris.

If your lure is made of plastic or other synthetic materials, you’ll need to be a bit more careful. First, rinse it off with water to remove any dirt or debris. Then, use a mild soap and a soft brush to scrub away any remaining gunk. Rinse it well and allow it to air-dry before using it again.
