Okay fellas.....
I read a post on here (or maybe it was the "other" site :roll: ) that lots of guys use popcorn salt for their plastics. I have been using a fine grade table salt, but I used popcorn salt for the first time today. I'm HOOKED :!: The only problem is I paid 1.99 for 3 measley ounces, and they didn't have a larger size. I bought the stuff at a local grocery store. Does anyone know of a place to buy it in bulk? Do some of you guys grind regular table salt? I have tried Lure Craft's salt, but it isn't anywhere near the grade of popcorn salt, and it was MUCHO expensive too :(

Is popcorn salt a lot finer than all the regular table salts? I've been using Leslie Table Salt and love it also, BUT...you can't buy it in Florida. We've got a Sam's club so I'd love to look in to the popcorn salt idea. Any particular name brand you prefer?

I do not pour plastic, just saw the popcorn salt at Sam's one time and thought senko salt, lol. It was in a large plastic container with a pop-up lid on the aisle with the popcorn and popcorn machines. Hope it helps, JIM.

Our Sams Club doesnt carry it but a local grocery store does. So what I did was go to the manager and ask for a good price for buying a case and he gave it to me. I think there were 16 little containers in a case and if I remember right I payed like 8-10 bucks. I'm almost out again so I hope I can work the same deal twice.
Popcorn salt is much much finer than the other salts I've tried and I have tried all I can find. It should stay in suspension better than larger grain salts in high concentrations such as a senko type bait. For what I do with it it's perfect.

Take care

Good Idea Bruce. Looks like I've got some kissin' up to do to the Albertson's manager :lol:
We don't have a Sam's Club here; just Costco, but I'll bet they might have it. I'll check there first. Thanks for the info guys :D

Well I tried popcorn salt instead of Lure Craft salt. I am sold! It is about half granularity and flows much better in the plastic. Now the fish just have to agree with me.

Headed down to the Ozarks on Wednesday. Those lunkers should be on the beds.

I actually looked in our yellow pages under "popcorn" and found several vendors of popcorn, nuts, condiments, etc. I called a company close to my place, and I'll be darned if they didn't have tons of the stuff. Ended up buying 2 cases (50 pounds) for about 22 bucks. To me, it's worth every penny :D [/quote]

Almost made that mistake myself. They had a bunch of butter flavored salt too, and I had to specify that I needed the white stuff. Maybe butter flavored baits will be the next craze :lol:

I know it sounds funny, but I don't think it could hurt. If you buy "generic" butter, it's cheaper than any fishing additive, it would leave a trail in the water and it would lube up a bait good for flippin in the heavy stuff 8)

I'm not saying that I'm gonna try it anytime soon, but who knows :wink:
