Pouring plastic baits
« on: December 02, 2019, 08:13:57 AM »
As I stated elsewhere I had to try and duplicate these:

I have been looking at various methods. The following is preliminary. I used spent baits. I saw a Roland Martin video on pouring but I am not willing to buy the silicon and injector (way too much money)!



I am confident I can make a mold and not destroy the originals.

Why don't you just use these?

Never got into plastic melting and pouring. Seems like a messy/toxic hobby. Enjoy yourself but have good ventilation if you melt down old plastic (plastisol or whatever).

Many years ago, when I fished largemouth bass in local lakes with frogs (what are they  ???  ::) )...I could buy a trailer with a forked tail like that...colored like a frog...made from ??? pork rind ???...came in a glass jar with some kind of pickling juice or preservative. Those plastic trailers remind me of those.

They are too big!! Though could be used in place of pork frog. The ones in my mold are tiny chunk and I do use them. I still use pork frogs at Raystown, And if anyone remembers I still have 2 jars of the long gone Spring Lizard!!

Bill: will be pouring in garage - thanks!  :)

This ain't about money. Its about I gotta have them.

How small do you want them?  Zoom has smaller versions down to 2".

 Modern pork production has killed the pork skin bait industry.  Seems with the fast growth of "market" hogs the skin isn't thick enough.  I didn't know that they are no longer made till I went looking for some a couple of years back... Prices are unreal on Ebay !!!  I always preferred pork in the colder months then switched to plastic in the summer .... never seemed to catch as much on the plastic.... but then again I'm generally not using jig+pigs as much in the warmer months.

I did not know pork frogs are no longer made! I still have a few. Only use them at Raystown in spring.
