Terminator™ Muskie Lure Colors

So you thought we were kidding about having a bunch of colors huh?

Well, here are almost 100 different colors from my archives, all with written descriptions. Most have pictures now, and more pictures are added as they become available. Since all Terminators™ are custom made to order you can have whatever paint job you want. If there is something that you want that you don't see here, just describe it and chances are I can do it for you.

All Terminator™ Lures are individually hand airbrush painted to perfection. The colors are bright and vibrant and applied in a way to maximize depth and flash. Terminators™ are finished with a mil-spec ultra high gloss clear urethane topcoat; the same as the paint on the Blue Angel's F-18s. I put on at least four coats of the topcoat and these babies look like they have been dipped in glass. Many people have told me that Terminators™ look like works of art but don't let that fool you. They may look beautiful on the outside - but underneath they are pure mean!!!!!

Flo red-orange body, black leopard spots all over sides and back, flo yellow belly. Named for some babe in a titty bar in Washington DC. She was wearing an outfit this color until she took it off.
