Recommended Posts

Watch the YouTube posted below on how to permanently flavor soft plastic lures while the plastisol is still melted.

You can even get garlic flavor from "natural flavors.com".

anyone know a low cost bulk alternative?. this scent stuff is expensive. I just ordered 8oz of tripple threat from upperhand scents and after doing the math doug is saying it takes 1-2 tbsp's per 1 cup of plastic. an 8oz bottle (16 tbsp's) would get me about 8 cups of scented plastic which is probably around 40 or so baits. that bottle is $22 shipped.

Actually doing both achieves the same thing, yes pouring scent into the plastic before pouring the bait does work but you lose some scent due to the heating process, but also using a good plastisizer mixed with the scent as said above will achieve exactly the same thing. The plastisizer is absorbed into the bait all the way to the core of the bait, but of course you lose some scent due to mixing it with plastisizer. Either process you use will hold scent as long as the other but using the cold method, you do have to allow time for the plastisizer to absorb into the bait. Once it is absorbed into the bait, it will not wash off and you are achieving the same thing as if you are adding scent to the hot plastic. It really dosen't matter which process you choose to get the scent into the plastic, as long as the scent is there. It is just a matter of personal preference. I have added scented plastisizer to a bag of baits and the baits actually were dry after 2 or 3 days because they absorbed the plastisizer.

what is your ratio for how much scent you add to a bag of plastics so they absorb the scent properly?

My other question is, will the baits soak up the scent after they are cured for 24 hours and placed into the bag? Or has this curing made them less permeable not allowing the scent to properly soak into the plastic? thanks

My experience has been that baits with salt added in the plastisol soak up scent more readily than baits that don't have salt added to the plastisol.

Also, water based scents soak into baits better than oil based scents.

Main ingredient in WD40 is fish oil... Use it on marshmallows to catch trout...... Any reason regular fish oil won't work as a scent on soft plastics???

It's a great attractant for trout.
