Attaching Swimbait Tails

4 posts in this topic

A few months back I finished a three piece swimbait for fishing the salt here in SoCal and was happy with the tail I made using the weed guard material from the leadheads I was pouring. This however was a little messy and somewhat hard to control while gluing the tail into the bait. I took a hiatus and am now back to perfecting the bait.

I have the means to make a mold and pour my own plastic tails but am wondering what methods everyone is using to attach them to the bait.

The downside of a plastic tail is replacing it after it gets torn up from a few fish.

My current thought is using something like a "twist lock" you would see on some of the leadheads on the market.

What do you think.

Dave,

Thanks for the link. Everytime I see someone ask for some specific info it seems like you have a link in your back pocket. Sometimes the search feature can lend to a lot of useless browsing if you do not put in the right words.

Thanks again,

DaveB.
