  1. I blended the skip jacks and put them in a bucket with water and salt. I scoop the fat and oil from the top after a few days in the backyard; It smelled, and I got green. I put the fat and oil in skillet trying to get rid of the water. Did this probably 5 times, the whole neighborhood stunk of fish. Mix the oil/fat with hot plastisol, and I got small bubbles in the plastic. The plastisol smells like fish, but the lure has some bubbles. I might try this again, but I'll use a pressure cooker to remove the water. Actually, I'm just going to use scented oils next time.
  2. I was thinking of blending/grinding a couple skip jacks and skimming the oil from the top of the mixture after it sits for awhile. I was wondering if any one has tried something similar before. Will the oil be okay to mix with plastisol?

    simple foil, mask, and dip

    Those look nice. How do them fish?
  5. No more dimples! Hey guys, thanks for the tips and helping out a noob.
  6. The mold has two cavities.
  7. I'm sorry; I'm not familiar with the term pop mold. Anyways, this is what I'm doing: I'm pouring into a rtv mold from Lurecraft with Lurecraft formula 548 . I heat the plastic on an electric range. The plastisol goes from a white liquid to a clear goo then to a clear liquid. I add colors and then pour. I wait about 3 minutes to pull the bait out of the mold. Then the bait goes in water bath.
  8. Hi, guys. I been a member for awhile, but I lost interest in pouring my own baits(darn fly fishing taking up all my free time). What I'm doing wrong? I keep getting dimples in the baits. The fish don't care, but I would like the aesthetics of a smoother bait.

    6,6" swimbaits

    I like the tail section. How do they swim and fish?
  10. Hi, I'm from NorCal and do a lot of stream, river, delta, and some lake fishing. I typical try to flyfish but have learned that using multiple techniques is better, whether it's: flyfishing, soaking bait, throwing lures, etc. I consider myself extremely versitale and experience fisherman. I like using swimbaits to locate stripers then switch over to the flyrod. I figure the typical 5-7 inch soft plastic swimbait I use costs me $2-$5, plus the jighead, and generally, I lose couple swimbaits week to the river or a striper destorys the bait. So, I have recently bought some lure molds and pl
