Pouring your own plastics

Recommended Posts

I have never tried it. I make a lot of my own jig heads but soft plastics are for the most part pretty cheap. A flea market a mile from the house that sells closeouts, discontinued items from wal-mart and such for 50 cents to a buck a package. A couple pre-spring fishing shows with similar pricing on name brands.

 

I have also bought directly from the manufacturer 100 quantities usually warrants some kind of deal.

I wish I could find something like that around here. We buy a package of Senko's for anywhere from $6.50 to $10.00. I pour my own for around a buck. I can also make whatever colour I want, whenever I need them. It takes about 30 minutes to make around a dozen. Keeps me entertained .......

I guess one of the advantages of living here, cheap tackle.

LOL Phil, that was the boat bag, the reason I liked fishing out of my own, didn`t have to carry it! My boat was slow to plane though, should have had it in back? Just easier to carry stuff than decide to try something you don`t have with you.

 

You guys had breakfast you needed to work it off!

I actually bought some stuff in order to try it out. I'm pretty pleased with the results. I have been making Senko style worms in various colours. Let me know if you would be willing to try some out for me.

When I can buy a bag of 100 Salty Cincos (made in Canada) for $40.00 I don't think much about making my own. I'd rather be on the water :Gonefishing:
