    Don'ts for Newbies

    Well done. Those look like fish catchers to me!

    Hello from Stockton

    You know......I've been meaning to bug you about that!

    Hello from Stockton

    Howdy, neighbor! I live in Fresno, just a couple hours south of you. Happy to have you aboard, Robert!
  5. I mixed and matched just about everything available at the time. I did some pretty crazy stuff back then. LOL. You should be fine.
  6. I never had a problem mixing hardeners/softeners with different brands of plastics.

    I called mine an Alsenko, and was shocked when I got a cease and desist letter from Yamamoto. Mine were hand pours and I sold VERY few. LOL Anyway, changed the name to Stick Bait.

    A.I. 2.75 tube pics?

    Lure Craft has a chocolate brown. That's about as dark as I've found.

    Take a look at Pro Cure's stuff. They have a HUGE variety.

    2019 Lure Contest Now Underway!

    Jigs are listed under wire baits, so I'd put them in there.

    7.5 inch worm molds

    I'm almost positive Lure Craft has them in 7 inch. Maybe give them a call? (260) 829-1274

    Florescent Pink?

    So many things have changed since I poured, but I always read that all flo colors need to be added to cold plastic.

    Florescent Pink?

    X3 and also make sure you mix the colorant really well before adding to plastic. Many of the flo colors separate badly.

    floating tails

    Frank nailed it, and I also forgot to mention that salt will do that some degree. The more salt, the more opaque the bait will be.

    floating tails

    Pretty much nailed it, but I used heavy salt for the body and no salt for the claws.

    Soft Plastic dye

    Another thing I might add is if you look towards the top, there is a sticky entitled, "List of lure mold companies." Many of those companies also sell colors, glitter, and another additives you might need. There is a huge selection of companies you can try now. When I poured, there were maybe 2. LOL

    For me, I had a miserable time making a decent PB&J because I couldn't find the right brown. Then I tried MF cinnamon and nailed it. So just a light purple top and the cinnamon bottom did the trick for me. All other browns would overshadow the purple.

    Chicken in a chain belly color

    Looks to me more like a pearlescent. More transparent than regular white. I think just white wouldn't show the flake very well. Also looks like it's holograph flake rather than just silver.

    Soft Plastic Cookbook

    MF makes a fluorescent pink that is translucent. You just need to make sure you shake the color a bunch and add it before heating the plastic.

    I'm hoping once the surgeon sees the MRI, he can approve of injections, but according to the spine specialist, there is not enough room to inject. He's thinking he might be able to inject over and/or under the 2 vertebrae, but that all depends on the surgeon. If that isn't an option, they will have to remove portions of those 2 vertebrae. Just playing the waiting game for now.

    Nice catch, Dave, and glad to hear recovery is going well! Sadly, I can say I will be able to relate. Just had an MRI done on my back and found out I need surgery. Lumbar Stenosis, which from what I've researched, is a nice way of saying crushed vertebrae. Going in next Wednesday to found out when the glorious event will occur.

    Elders majic color

    From what I saw online, it looks like green pumpkin laminated with lime green.
