How to Re-Skirt a Lure for Offshore Fishing

Don’t toss your favorite lure head, make it new again with a fresh skirt

Learn how-to re-skirt a lure with this quick video.  Replacing lure skirts is part of the game.  Sooner or later, your favorite skirt will have fallen victim of too many fish, and it will lose its luster.  With a few quick steps, you can replace those old skirts with vibrant new ones, and breathe fresh life into your favorite lures. 

Through the years, skirts have evolved along with lures.  There are new UV skirt options on the market that are simply awesome.  These new skirts are a great way to freshen up your favorite lure heads.  There is a bit of a learning curve to reskirting, so you want to make sure you’re confident when you start to tackle the process.  One way to smooth things out is to start with a quality skirt.  Good skirts have plenty of stretch and aren’t too thick or stiff.  This is one reason we prefer Cousins Tackle Skirts here.  You also don’t want to skimp on the floss, there are plenty of affordable rigging floss options.  Please don’t get some bobo floss and try to spruce up an $80 lure, it’s just not worth it.  Plus, the fish Gods will smite you for doing so.

Re-skirting lures isn’t that bad.  The supplies list is very short, and the steps are limited, so watch the video and try it yourself.  If you have any questions please call, email or live chat us.  We are here to help.
