  1. Thanks, I was able to get to the site via a link, but google search the link goes to dead webpage. Strange!
  2. Did Bait Plastics go out of business? Site is down. Is there still a way to get Bait Junkys plastic? Thanks
  3. What kind of volume are you looking get produced? Injection or hand pours? May know a few folks that could at least point you in the right direction.
  4. Sticker mule does a nice job on roll sticker labels, obviously the more you buy the lower the cost.
  5. Yes indeed, I make a couple of different styles of paddle tails and they've done really well on stripers, especially at night. Tarpon and snook like them as well.
  6. Now that you said that it's painfully obvious it's not water based...one of those moments when the brain just didn't engage. Same here, one particular combination with silver minnow has produced more big (20lb+) fish than anything I've ever used. Love that stuff.
  7. Thanks for all the tips and replies. Very much appreciated. I've been adding color after heating so that may just well solve the problem. That particular pigment seems to hard pack more than anything else I use other than silver minnow, so I always give it a bit more attention. Are they suspended in water or oil?
  8. Thanks, I mix like crazy, and have small thumb screws in my bottles to help mix, it's only that particular color that does it, which is why I'm scratching my head.
  9. I'm running into an issue with green chartreuse (lurecraft) not dispersing into my plastisol. No matter how much I shake the bottle before adding it in it won't completely dissolve, leaving little dots of colorant suspended in the mix. Anyone have any idea on how to remedy this? Thanks!
  10. Your mind isn't playing tricks, I did read that the other day. Definitely something to consider. I'm targeting fish in fast moving water with lots of structure so I need them to have a little bit of backbone, not to mention these big stripers absolutely crush the baits when they hit. Thanks for the heads up on that, it's greatly appreciated.
  11. Thanks for the insight Frank, I appreciate it. It's easy to go down the rabbit hole with so much info out there. I'm hand pouring so the pourasol looks like it might just do the trick.
  12. Let me say first, what a great resource TU is, longtime reader, first time poster. I've been making 5-7" shad style soft baits for about a year now, the primary target being saltwater striped bass in NYC. I've been using LC's extra strength 550 plastisol. The baits have been solid producers, and as durable as can be expected when hit by 15-40 lb fish, however the action on the paddle tail isn't quite where it needs to be on slow speed retrieves. So to get to the point, my question is, would it be better to switch to a medium plastisol, or just add some softener to what I'm already usin
