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

the salt will absorb the water and make the bait poof up.

 

best thing to do is either leave your baits on the runner and hang them straight up and down or take them off the runners and lay them perfectly straight and flat on a cookie tray
