  1. Looking for someone that would be willing to sell wood blanks for surf fishing. If anyone knows anyone or can point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated. Best,
  2. Hello, I'm new to pouring soft baits and was looking for some help on fall rate. I have all the necessary stuff to make a good fall rate, just curious if anyone could shed some light on the subject of adding salts and how fast a senko should sink. Tight lines!!!!
  3. Hey guys, Maybe I am out of my mind but I tried searching what to do after shooting/injecting/pouring soft plastics but I can not find any relevant post. I could of swore, that one time I came across a post, that said after shooting soft plastics, you should place them in cold water over night. I've always done this. Sometimes I've added garlic scent to the water or even salt, I don't know why the salt, maybe I thought some would transfer to the bait through osmosis!!! Recently I have started to shoot some baits that are very heavy in salt and I feel as if the "water cure" is sucking out the salt, is that possible? Does anyone have any special process they follow after pouring/shooting soft plastics? For my next test, I was going to shake them in salt and laminate bag them, or put a little garlic oil in a laminate bag and call it a day. Thanks in advance. Charles
  4. Hi All, First off, thanks for all the great tips on this forum. I bought my first kit in 2007 and put it aways to collect dust until this summer. Nothing was more gratifying then catching my first fish on the baits I made. Recently I've been having a ton of luck pitching grass here in Western New York. This question might come off as a If its not broke why fix it but I have to ask. Here is the recipe for the Bears Baits 4.25" Kodiak Craw 1 cup Calhoun Ultra soft 2000 plastic 1/4 cup pickling salt color and glitter vary 1 teaspoon softener 5 drops garlic oil I melt the plastic in a pyrex cup for 1 min, stir and then 1 more min Add other ingredients Melt for 35 seconds I use Bears small injector Suck up plastic and inject into hot mold that I cook in the oven before first pour at 200 degrees for about 5 mins. Remove from mold and place in stainless bowl with ice water and garlic salt. Put in refrigerator over night. I then sometimes package them in Salt or Garlic salt. Making them a little more dry but not as dense. Get addicted and repeat! I think they feel like creepy crawlers, or something. I'll cut to the chase they don't feel like Reaction Innovation Sweet Beavers or Strike King Rodents. Rodents and Beavers seem to be heavier, more dense and dry feeling. I cut them up and salt oozes out of them. I melted them down and they seem to come out with the same texture and feel as my mix. Is there something to put on the mold while shooting the plastic that gives this texture/feel to the bait? Thanks in advance and thanks for a great place to come to learn. Charles PS thanks to this forum I was able to pour my first 2 color baits this am! Thank You!
