Will grubs from same maker melt or bleed when stored together?

Recommended Posts

I bought some different colors of Kalin’s Lunker Grubs and to save space in my tacklebag I took a few of each grub and put them all together in one binder bag in my worm binder. I figured they were all the same type plastic so shouldn’t be a problem. A day later I’m fishing and notice some of the grubs have absorbed color from a different grub. Is it going to be a problem keeping them stored in the same bag?

No. I do this on purpose.

I haven't used kalin's but on the baits I do have, the dyes will move between them if they are in contact. I've found red to be the most mobile of colors.

Different colors will bleed together even from the same manufacturer. Zman baits will melt together with whatever you put them with.

yes, different color baits can and will bleed over time. Keep them separate. Storing them together during a day trip will be fine.

My whole goal in mixing them was to reduce bulk in my tackle bag. It actually saved a good bit of bulk when I co-bagged 6 bags of grubs into single bag. I guess I could keep a fewer number of each in separate bags but that starts to increase bulk again.

 

This is all part of a larger issue I'm trying to address of minimizing bulk/weight of my tackle I take on my kayak. I'm fine with my bag regardless of size/weight on my boat, but it has become unwieldy and heavy and bulky on my kayak. Ultimately I hope to reduce down to a single utility box for kayak day trips with a limited assortment of the lures I plan to use that day. But first I want to see if I can get my tackle bag down to a better size/weight before I do that. I already am using a fairly compact Cabelas Angler II tackle bag (which I really like) but it has become heavier than I thought and hard to store/reach behind my seat.

 

Plan B is to buy a utility box and simply add tackle specific to each upcoming trip. This has me maintaining tackle in 2 separate locations which also has pros and cons to doing. What do any of you do around these issues?

They won't melt, they will bleed. Kalin's tend to bleed less than many others, but they'll bleed if left together for a long period, specially if they are of markedly different colors. Bleeding isn't always a bad thing. Sometimes I do it on purpose.
