Dead on Plastix senkos?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! Just ordered a fat guys fishing 10 cavity core shot senko mold the other day. I have 0 experience making baits yet. As I’m waiting for my stuff to come in, I figured I’d get the other things I need. Do you guys add salt or softener to the dead on blends for senkos? I have worm, swimbait, and craw/tube blend. Thanks in advance, I appreciate the help big time. -Zack

My recipe as it stands

4 oz of plastic I use m and f super soft Your mileage may very. 

1 table spoon salt

2 table spoons glass bead media

1 table spoon of softner

 formula makes a super soft stick. Durable? Nope! Do I care? Nope!

good action? Yep! Hard thump when pulled on a wacky jig? Yep !

 

some will say different but this is what the fish told me they preffer down at my local watering hole.

Awesome thank you! The way you would make it a little more durable is less softener and a harder plastic right? Thanks for the recipe my friend.

There is a fine line between more durable and not enough wiggle.  You have to play around with your mix to see what works best to make a bait you like.

If you use salt be sure to clean everything as salt is corrosive to aluminum so you don't want to leave plastic in your injector or molds. You can weight your worms with nail weights and don't have to mess with salt. Cub48
