Human experience counts with every second of life. Therefore, the possibility remains that once in a lifetime one must have gone through the experience of fishing. Fishing is a common trend nowadays. The excitement of catching a fish is enormous. But when catching it with a bait that one has never used before, is something eye-catching. The fishing trend is gaining popularity worldwide. The more someone does the more excitement it instills inside. Therefore, the use of plastic lure molds adapting to different styles and designs is making the work going crazy.

The softer bait is ideal for catching a fish. The bait is almost transparent. Nonetheless, the fisherman still wants to use colorful bait. This, therefore, demands the colors that the bait is not available in. Furthermore, the softer the bait is, it gets easy to catch the fish.

Reasons for Recycling Your Bait

We all have used the plastic lure molds that we buy usually from the markets. However, we are less concerned and creative about pouring our baits for tricking fishes. The self-created baits carry special attraction and attention.

These baits not only are productive in tricking the fishes into biting it, but they also carry a nostalgic feeling as something that we created rather than buying off the shelf.

There are therefore many reasons that force us to look for a method to pour our own plastic lures. The foremost reason is the extent to which we can tweak the bait. This means that in customized baits the level of tweak depends upon your way.

Additionally, another reason is the soft nature of the bait. There are times that you need softer bait but you don’t have it. The self-pouring process allows you to create how softer the bit you want.

The next reason that makes the customized self-made bait as preferred one is the availability of the color. Color choice is something that makes the primary choice when it comes to choosing stuff. However, with market stuff, the customer eventually and ultimately has to choose the available colors. With the self-pouring process, one can create the color one wants.

Last but not least is the availability of the design. This comes to special attention whilst kids are also the part of the fishing fun. On a family weekend, people happen to take their kids along. The kids are more enthusiastic about their adventures.

Therefore, the parents are more careful about their kids’ personal fishing bait kits. Furthermore, the kits must be off their personal color and baits of desired shapes. In this way, the self-pouring baits offer the option to create the bait of your favourite shape and character.


Along with being exciting, the fishing trend can be way heavy on the pocket. This, therefore, results from the expenditure of bait. Every time purchasing a new one does not sound like a good idea.

Instead, it is a high recommendation to recycle the previous ones. Hence, when the need arises one can easily apply it with an appealing color scheme. Furthermore, the use of plastic lure molds is a perfect fit for the recycling material.

Hence, using and saving on plastic can save the day. The softer plastic makes it more worthy to use. Therefore, we should never use this over and over again.

Below are the steps as to how to organize plastic baits:

Step 1

The process involves experimentation with some precautionary measures too. Before even pouring the plastic lure molds, there is a dire need to have safety masks, cross ventilation, and safety glasses. Nonetheless, ventilation is important to keep the air coming.

Hence, therefore a safety mask is a necessary addition so to restrict the fumes from entering inside the human body. Furthermore, glasses are necessary to help prevent the eyes and gloves from excessive burning.

Conducting the experiment, therefore, requires separating the baits. Separation means that those baits that are super-salted should lie in one section. Amongst the super-slated baits, Senko Baits are the perfect example. Keeping the matching color schemes together will achieve the perfect result. Otherwise, we can also mix the shades in separate sections. Nonetheless, this too gives a desired effect and result.

Step 2

The step is interesting as worn-out plastic is the point of disposal. Therefore, an old microwave is a recommendation. Nevertheless, it seems like a nice place to dispose of and experiment with it. Heat it for a minute. The moment the plastic starts popping with a thick and thin consistency, the real experimentation begins.

To do something out of the way, add color to it. Stir it till one gets the real color. Furthermore, to keep it going we add a non-metal glitter in it. The nice, bubble-free texture foams. This, therefore, is the result of a plastic spoon or stick with which we have given a good mix.

Step 3

Heating the microwave oven for 1 minute will give better results. The step involves the use of a measuring cup. This, therefore, melts the plastic effectively. Furthermore, it requires cross-checking.  The need to see if the plastic settles down at any moment in time. Hence, with the help of a stirring stick, air bubbles diminish. This, therefore, forms a nice texture of the plastic and it pours matters. Hand pouring our injector pour is going to give a nice plastic finish.

Step 4

The experiment is endless and requires steps in repetition. Hence, to create a perfect vision of it, here we perform the injector mold or freehand experiment. But one has to be extra cautious. By slowing injecting in the mold, ensure that air bubbles are not there.

Furthermore, when we finalize the pouring process, the bait is let to cool. This happens for 15-20 minutes. Coldwater serves as an alternative to quickly cool the plastic and it sets the plastic lure molds in place. Nevertheless, after all the plastic is in place, it still feels sticky. This is normal, if this happens then one can repeat the entire process.

Step 5

The final result forms when the plastic lure molds are finally cool down. This step is necessary before taking them out of the mold. Furthermore, it is always advisable to set the plastic mold in a cold-water bucket.

This therefore will ensure its reliability. Furthermore, the plastic even though is ready, still it will feel sticky and stinky. Hence, water acts as a cooling variant. Also, though it is necessary to give it a nice scent before storing it. A few minutes in water will make it ready to use.

Step 6

The baits when ready undergo a lot of experiments. But, before storing it, it is necessary to dry it off completely. Hence, creativity floats with its use. Hence, the use of scent is there. But, apart from that, there is a use of salt. Furthermore, glitter and ginger are also a part of the experiment. This is not the end.

Nevertheless, one can play with its consistency. It can use a softener to make the mold soft. Otherwise, it can use a hardener to rush off the material. Whatever, the kind of plastic material that is in use, old baits are also feasible for the recycling process.
