On another site, there are several folks who paint & repaint their lures & some of the color schemes they do are very artistic & inspiring. I have a bunch of old lures I intend to re-paint some day, but agree that bone can be a good color! Some of what I have are bone under the factory paint, and some are clear. I've caught some fish on the clear with most of the paint gone on several occasions too, so that's also certainly something to consider.
I have some old Striper Strike & Atom poppers, and they're different colors. Some are white, some are yellow & a couple are even a light blue. But, I've scraped paint off many of them in the past & they still worked just fine without any paint on them at all.
I'm sure we get more motivated about the paint & colors than the fish we catch do, but still it's fun to repaint old lures & try to think we know what will catch fish!
