Half-price Yamamoto Soft Plastics
« on: June 19, 2017, 12:46:27 PM »

Well, we all know how expensive Senko's are, right? I pay $8.99 a bag for mine.

Here's how to cut that price in 1/2. FLIP IT, it's as simple as that! FLIP IT!! I throw a ton of Senkos/5" hula grubs. When I have used it so much that I rip a slice in the top of the senko or hula skirt from my hook, all I do is take the senko/hula grub completely off and then rig it from the opposite end. You wouldn't believe how the skirt of the hula grub then imitates the pinchers/antennas of a crawdad. Now, you are getting twice the use out of the lure.

Sorry, Gary....stocks just went down.  :)

Thanks for bring up the tip. ~c~  I too always turn around a bait if the nose gets torn up.  I will also bite off a 1/4 or 1/2 an inch, if the nose gets torn.  They work just as good on the recycle as they do when new.  I know back seaters that throw them away when they get a little torn.  If I find them in the boat, I will recycle their discards.  Definitely helps me with the overall cost of plastics.. :-*

I do that with my worms as well, but it doesn't work so well with my flukes; once you bite off or cut a chunk from the nose, it really changes the action. I have experimented with dipping used ones in boiling water, and it does mend the holes a bit, but not completely. I go through a lot of flukes; does anyone have any recycling tips for them?

Big G taught me that little trick. Sometimes I remember, sometimes I don't. But I have done it a few times.

We melt them down and pour new ones. They work every bit as good.

When talking about a zoom fluke, once the nose is torn up I consider them done.  I once fished with a guy that wacky rigged the torn ones and did quite well that day, just letting it free fall and then jerking off the bottom, and dying again..   If there is a lot of grass, I will put a very light 1/32 bullet weight to help save the nose of the fluke while coming through the grass.  The small bullet weight deflects the grass while still allowing the fluke to do its dance.  Any heavier a bullet weight changes the action of the bait too much for my liking, and it restricts  the side to side walking action between pauses.  I do love flukes, and they cast a mile.
