Super Glue

Recommended Posts

What brands of super glue do you use, if you do, for fishing? Is it just me or does everyone get super glue all over when using it? Every time I use super glue it get it on my fingers and then they all start sticking togethor, my fingers get stuck to my bait, or my bait gets glued funny when I am peeling my fingers apart.

I use the Super Glue brand super glue. You can get 2 very small bottles at the dollar stores for a buck. It doesn't get any where because the opening on the bottle tops is tiny.

Be sure to get a paper clip thou. The glue will dry out in the top clogging the flow of glue. Straighten out a paper clip and clear out the hole so you can use it again.

I just bought some super glue gel, I believe it is Super Glue brand.  The gel is really nice!  It doesn't get all over and the cool bottle it is in doesn't clog.  I really like it and it was about $2.50.

Superglue is great... never use it fishing BUT it's the only glue I've ever heard of that works better with moisture.... which is why it sticks to skin so well.... but next time you use it breath on whatever your gluing, it helps!

I use Pro's Soft Bait Glue.  It works great on the plastics but won't fuse skin together like regular super glue.

Loc-Tite @ Wal-Mart has a brush inside it....I use it for everything...

Jig Trailers

Trick worms

Flukes

I use 4" ring worms in the illinois river and I ran out of Black with white tail in a tourney...

But I had black with blue tail and I had 1" white twisters....

So I cut off the blue tails and glued on the white twisters....Super Glue Is Awesome stuff...

I have just started using super glue. It really patches up the plastic and keeps it on the hook, but it is also a messy pain in the neck.  I'm not sure, but I suspect that I will $hit canning the whole idea unless I find one that is cleaner to use.  Where do you get that pro glue?

All the super glues seem to be made out of the same chemical.  I like to attach enough jigs and trailers when I know which types seem to work ahead of time at home, not in a rocking boat.  I save lots of monye on plastics this way. I hate to use it in a boat because I've had some glued fingers at the worst time!

Here's a tip if you don't use this stuff yet: Put your plastic trailer on about halfway, then put just a dab of glue right under the skirt and on the shank of the hook.  You'll have about 30 seconds to slide the trailer up before it locks in position. Once I super glued a tube on the collar of a ball head jig while fishing an FLW tourney on Champlain and I caught over 14 pounds of smallies from the same tube.  At noon, the tube had one tentacle left! Without the glue, I would have gone through a dozen tubes at least. Since the smallies couldn't pull the tube down the hook, they often came back for a second strike on the same cast.

i've tried the dollar store cheapy stuff a bunch...they were a pain to say the least(picture riggin plastics in the night with a new moon.)  then i went to my local tiny fishing store and got some...i think it's quik-tite...or something like that.  regular tube, no casing thing.  and a cap that snaps on tight....haven't had a problem with it yet(It's almost gone.  $2.00  

tho 7Lbass's stuff sounds good :D

Questions:

Can this be used on plastic jerkbaits and senkos to repair the rips? What about if I just save the ones that get ripped up and repair them later for the next trip? Does it seal them back up nicely so they can be T-rigged again?

This would let me do the gluing in a more controlled environment and avoid the need for doing it on the boat or shore.

If I use the glue to keep a t-rigged senko from sliding what happens once the worm get torn in half? Is there a buch of plastic and dried glue that needs to be picked off the hook before I can put another bait on?

Thanks.

i use it just to hold the plastic on the shank of my hook.  never had much luck glueing plastics back together....usually when they are spent i'll just throw em in my bag then use em wacky rigged later.

and yea when a fish finally does get the worm unglued from the shank of the hook you usually wanna scrape off the old glue...it's really easy with a little knife.  might even be able to just leave it one...i just have always scraped it off.

To anwer your question, late,  yes PRO's Soft~Bait Glue will repair and hold your baits on your hooks and dry flexible and odorless unlike the over counter brands.  It also has an average one year guarantee on the packaging and yes, it's pricey but how many senkos, ika's and the like you do some of you all buy each week or month?   ;D It adds up quickly to when you're on fish and run out and go and buy more. Mending only takes a few seconds while fishing with the glue.  After you rig, apply as rigged and it wicks into your plastics to bond with the hook. When changing baits, just gently work it with your finger nail and there won't be any glue there to worry about and just put on another bait. Not a commercial here but, you asked and I thought I'd reply.  And, not all Cyanoacrylates are a like.  The others that use it will fill you in on more uses too.

Good Fishin!

Ditto Stick-em.  I bought some in February of this year.  Still using the same bottle, goes a long way.  Have repaired some Brush Hogs enough times to pay for the product.  Seriously, repaired and reused some three times.  Also good for many other applications.  Broke daughter's Precious Moment figurine--one drop fixed it.  Only takes seconds to cure. Go to website for dealers, or order direct as I did.  Don't think you will be disappointed.

Papa tom,

You can hold those plates together too without glue and apply it on the crack and it will wick in like solder to a copper fitting.  One guy fixed his transducer bracket with it one day in NH two years ago and it's still there he said...

Have a Great Day and weekend on the water and be safe..

Nothing against Pro Soft Glue, but it will dry out just as easily as any other glue. I had an un-opened bottle in the closet completely cure into a bottle shaped mass of glue.  The on in the boat lasted a little longer, but did the sme thing.

Super glues need moisture to cure - either from the air or the water. They cure quickly when you toss your newly glued bait in the water. One thing I have learned that causes many a glue bottle to clog up with dried glue is when you let the tip of the bottle touch what you are gluing. If you let any moisture get in the tip, it may be doomed to clogging.

The glue I use if the LocTite gel in the blue bottle. It has a twist on/off cap with a locking ring. I have had this bottle for months now and it has yet to dry at all around the tip.

Basic care, carefule use and proper storage will keep your glue around a lot longer.

Brad you are exactly right about PSBglue... You must be a chemist or an avid glue user.  Many people don't read the directions on the back of the bottle of PSBglue because it would make their lives a lot easier using it. If one will read them and keep PRO's Soft~Bait Glue in a conditioned enviro like the gentleman does whom posted here prior said, his glue is still saving SENKOs, zooms and other baits since his purchase in Feb/o5 and will, through your fishing season. It states very clearly to NOT leave it on or in the boat (too hot for any glue or even expensive soft baits). The directions are below that are exactly what is on my bottles.

re: Refrigeration extends shelf life. Store out of sunlight and heat. Storage in tackle boxes/bags reduces shelf life.

Two other important things are, PSBGlue actually mends/repairs the baits while you're fishing and drys flexible and isn't like any other fishing adhesives. There isn't any smell after entering the water within 5 seconds also which is a big turn off to all fish.

Just ask any Professional and avid fly fisherman that matches the hatch while fishing using PSBglue. The bites is immediate and they can't say that about any other product other than PSBG. Trout and other family species have a 10,000 times more sensor smell than any other fresh water species and some of these over the counter brands they've told me actually turn the fish away.

Ex: Zap, Super glue, Krazy Glue, Bondini, locktite, durabond, testors and the list goes on and on...

;D Great Fishing!

Stick-em

PS if you have your receipt, send it back for a new bottle if unopened. The company is very honorable about this since they have a 1 year guarantee if you take care of it like stated on the directions.
