    I just recently just started pouring my own resin lures , one thing I’ve learned is that the lure has to dry to get rid of the gases unless the epoxy will get fish eyes and leaving spots with no epoxy , how long do you guys let your lure to dry before doing anything to it?

    72 Hrs normally.............to allow hardening reaction to complete.

    Fisheyes can be from a number of causes.
    - contamination, from hands or household sprays used nearby.
    - unreacted silicone component on the mold ( poor portioning of the silicone components)
    - moisture contamination from exposure to humid air of polyurethane resin components
    ( causes off-reactions).
    - using medical grade syringes to portion epoxy............rubber syringe seal has a silicone lubricant
    ( use syringe with a plastic plunger.
    FWIW

    Maybe wipe them down with denatured alcohol before clearing make sure theres no vents or fans on in the room. It happenned to me when i was clear coating a rod. While it was turning someone came in my room and turned on the fan...... fish eyes
