  1. Wow........that's sad to hear. R.I.P. Del
  2. Either that or they don't wanna refund a 55 gallon barrel.
  3. Very, VERY good advice!

    Purple

    Probably poor lighting or my monitor, but that looks like red bug, not june bug

    Purple

    Agreed. I used LC's Black Grape because the green flake would always get discolored with the regular purple.
  6. I have an old school one..... 4 ounces of plastic 7 drops Strawberry Red 3 drops Black Grape Both Lure Craft colors It was a winner every time in my book!
  7. I stopped in a local tackle shop a few days ago and boy have things changed. I haven't been in there in probably a decade and was shocked at the number of soft plastic companies out there. I'm guessing 50 percent I haven't even heard of. Might be a good thing, though, because I bought several packs of unknown baits. Who knows, right? I know this isn't a "cost per lure" thing, but rather an "is it worth it with all the competition" now, but hey.......if you've got something that's solid and will catch a fisherman's eye (like it did with me,) I say get after it!
  8. Yes most softeners are the same. It's the hardeners that are not.
  9. Brother I see you are in Fresno.  Kerman born and raised here and been living in Fresno for 30 years. Small world!

  10. Sorry my old mind missed that, but same thing applies with flo's separating.
  11. BINGO! Just like some plastisols, fluorescents hard pack more than most colors. They need to be mixed really well. I just used a small screwdriver to break it up, but some guys use beads or small weights. One that's done, as you mentioned, mix it in cold plastic. If you don't, you are wasting color and just beating a dead horse.
  12. Welcome to TU! If you look up top, you will see a sticky thread about lure mold companies. Many of those companies also sell plastic and supplies to make baits. Good luck!
  13. Mark it's been so long since I've made a bait, I'm not completely sure. If I'm not mistaken, I stayed away from anything Pro Cure that read, "Gel." If it was a sauce or oil, I would put it in the plastic. Memory serves me right, any gel made a mess of the plastic. Nowadays when I fish, I just put the scent on my baits.
  14. Pro Cure is my go-to scent. Plenty of squid stuff here..... https://pro-cure.com/?s=squid&post_type=product&et_search=true
  15. Congrats to the winners. I was unable to judge this year because of work and just now looking at the pictures. Amazing talent as usual! And for the record, I can assure everyone there is no favoritism when selecting winners. Nice work and I hope everyone has a great year of fishing!
