You can find these at any hardware store. I use something similar for screws and whatnot in my garage. I may need to buy a second one after seeing this

Yeah I just buy them from HF because they're cheap.

What's the best way to store skirting tabs?  I was thinking in the oem plastic sleeves kept in a worm binder? 

Right now I have been storing them in gallon freezer bags with the color and where I bought them in the label area. About 1/2 the skirt tabs I have received in the past couple of months have been stuck together. I take the tab, separate the stands then put it in a freezer bag so they are ready when I need them.

Thanks for the storage suggestions guys.   Next question, other then lightly taping them with painters tape, is there a better way to keep the weedguard isolated from the skirt?  The tape is a little fussy but it makes getting the skirt arranged a lot less annoying.

Put the guard in after you have your skirt the way you like it, also makes tieing the skirt a little easier also.  My molds allow me to do this, I know some require the guard to be poured into the head.   If you are purchasing heads with weed guards in them you can just pull them out with a pair of pliers and replace them with something of your own later.

If you go with the binders, let me know how that works.

Already having the ability to pour and paint jigs, I decided to go in with a friend to buy all we needed for bass jigs.  We chose the Do-It Poisontail mold.  It seems like a great all-around jig.

 

They are already producing some nice results.  The bass were on a major crankbait bite the other day, but I had to bust out one of the jigs to give it a test run.

Moved on to tiny jigs.  This is a single tab of crinkle silicone folded over twice giving a thick and short skirt.  With the 3" grub trailer it comes in just above 5/16oz and in bathtub testing it looks like it will be nice little finesse swimbait.  I have no idea where I got those heads from, I have had a pair of them kicking around my misc jigheads box for years.  Anyone know what they are or what that style is called?

Very similar to a Charlie Brewer Slider. Not sure who makes that one.

Funny, I found them again just this last weekend.  They are from Eiron Jigs .  It's a small scale manufacturer and you have to call your orders in, which explains why I never got anymore of them.

Do you put any clear coat over your chartreuse baits? I tried it and they turned orange on me.

You really need to try a Zoom creepy crawler doubletail grub in GP on that jig.

No, I don't expect the bait to last that long anyways.
