A soft plastic lure like no other!

I stared pouring plastic baits over ten years ago - mostly using molds I bought or made myself. By accident I found a way to make a soft plastic minnow or grub that far outproduces most small lures on the market.



Used on a light jig, I can catch just about anything that swims - including an 18 pound carp (ugh!). Made in larger sizes, I can use the design with a weedless jig, swimbait hook, off set worm hook or Octopus hook for drop shot rigs. Here are a few fish caught, spring to fall and even under the ice:






The coolest thing is a don't need a mold and shape and length are at my discretion!

Thanks Dave. One of these days I'll think of a way to make the lure rig weedless, but for now I'm still able to catch fish in weed pockets using a crappie rod over 8' long. Larger fish I've caught have been along weed edges and near rocks anyway and backreeling always saves the day when using 6# test.

no mold? what do you do, use heat on old plastics? looks kinda like smashing/stretching pieces of worms or other old baits. Pretty cool concept.

Did you make a mold for it? I understand about melting platisol in Microwave but how do you get the various shapes?
