Soft plastics this time

Recommended Posts

Took a break from the wire baits to try out some new molds. I haven't made too many soft plastic baits the past few years but plan on getting back into it. Figured I would show everyone to see what you think?

 

Top to bottom:

 

3.5" Paddle tail grub

4.8" Flick shake 

2.75" Super Chunk Jr copy

4" Chunk mold

4" Blade minnow bait

Thanks, now I need to shoot a bunch of each in solid black for the upcoming season.

I need to fish some of those minnow baits. I heard you could put a green pumpkin minnow on a shakyhead, dip tail in chartreuse and put a dab of chartreuse on chin and murder the fish.

Super chunk Jr on a 5/16oz jig is the fish catcher for me.

I just got into plastics last year, exclusively doing repours as a way to do something with the excessive amount of old baits I end up with instead of just throwing them away. It works pretty well once I got the hang of it and the fish don't mind my funny colors.

Are those from aluminum molds or the resin ones from Ukraine?

resin except the craws are from an aluminum mold from the same place.

Trying to get back into pouring these after my accident. I spilled about 3oz of molten plastic over my hand one night trying to pour fluke tails. The burn was bad and my fingers swelled up to about twice their size which is why I have been hesitant.

I collect used soft plastics from guys in my club to melt down into trailers. GP and black are the best colors but I take them all. Some of the odd colors I just mix together and pour as senkos which I give away.
