Anyone pouring their own soft plastics?

Post by onthewater102 »

Up until now I'd just been interested in recycling used baits that are too chewed up to function, but I'm toying with just pouring my own from fresh plastic going forward.

I assume it's pretty straight forward making baits for summer use, look for more durable formulas and the heat will keep things flexible, but I fish a lot more during the cold water (55 degrees & under) season so I'm thinking I'm needing softer plastic formulas. Anyone out there find a good balance between flexibility and durability for this type of situation?
I have a marriage license and a fishing license, but I only carry one in my wallet.
