Ripper swim baits

4 posts in this topic

Getting ready to make my 1st batch of Ripper baits from a do it mold.  As these mimic a Keitech, will there be an issue with keeping them straight without them taking a crooked set? I'm assuming that is why Keitech sells their baits in the clam shell. Any of you have experience making the Ripper baits yet? Thanks!

I have made a lot of that style bait. I don’t bag them in bait bags to prevent the thin tails from taking a “set”. For storage I use the cheap ziploc hard plastic containers and stack my baits in those. Works for me and my fishing but prolly not good for retail.

Lurecraft or Janns has the crankbait vacuum formed boxes. That's kind of what I've been thinking. I got a feeling that with one of my new swimbaits I'm going to be running into the same issue.

I let my rippers “cure” for several days before placing them into 4x7” zip seal bags. Been shooting most with do it essential plastic and have had minimal bent tails.
