I'd put some in and squish them around to see if it got on all of them.  If not then add a little more.  It is easier to add than to subtract oil.

It is about time for you to post some pics of those worms.

Yep.  I have used CB's sauce in 3 flavors, anise oil, and WD-40 on baits.

I have a Del-Mart stick bait mold that makes wonderful 5" baits.  It can be hand poured or injected. 

If your plastisol has salt you will need to keep it stirred well and often as the salt will sink.  If you plan to melt in a microwave don't use the one from the kitchen.  Get a cheap one from a garage sale or Wally World.

If you do this in the basement you should have an open window with a fan blowing to the outside to get rid of the fumes.  You will need some good gloves, and eye protection.  Never get water around hot plastic, it may explode.

If you haven't done this you should go to www.tackleunderground.com and look in the soft plastics forum under the (don't for newbies).  There is a lot of good info there which can save you time and maybe a serious injury as you will be working with plastic over 300.

Remember that when you start mixing baits of different colors the end result will be brown.


I have been melting plastisol for over 40 years and have a few dozen molds, hand pour, injection, home made and purchased, so I may be able to help you with your learning curve.  Post back when you have questions.
Do you ever put scent in bags ?  I was thinking about putting a couple of drops of Hawg sauce in each bag . have you tried doing this?

I am like Ed.  I use Plano 3700 boxes and each box is labeled and devoted to the same baits in different colors and weights.  Each time I go out I take boxes that are appropriate for the moment bound together with luggage straps and drop them in to the starboard hatch.  Plastics are in various labeled 3600 boxes and I have eight of those in an old gym bag, which fits under a step I built to the front deck.  My boat is stored in a nearby state park secured storage yard, so I have to haul everything back and forth.  I have my huge Plano hip roof tackle box my daughter gifted me when I got in to bass fishing 18 years ago following retirement and I hate to part with it, so it sits on the shelf empty.

I only use one when I go with someone else.  I have an old one similar to the one in the link.  Mine holds the 3600 size boxes (5 in front on the shelves, 2 in back, and 2 in the top if I don't take food in it.  It also has 2 side pockets for other stuff and some storage in the front zipper pocket.

I use tackle bags with plastic boxes. I haven't used a traditional tackle box for years. I have a bag with several boxes of assorted topwaters, crankbaits, spoons, spinnerbaits, etc., which I keep stored in my boat when I'm on the water. However, since most of my fishing is done with soft plastics, I have a special bag for soft plastics which contain smaller plastic boxes for hooks, sinkers and other terminal tackle. The bag system works best for me.  ;)

I prefer a Z Man ZinkerZ or a Strike King Zero. Both are made by Z Man.
Both are 5 inch and are made of ElaZtech.
They last at least 10 time longer than any other worm. One will last you the whole day at least. When they get worn you just cut them in half and use them for the Ned-Rig.
I've caught hundreds of LM Bass using these here in Central NJ. I use a 4/0 EWG 1/8oz VMC hook.
I've tried all kinds of 5" worms and these outdo them all.
My best color is Watermelon Red.
My brother got a 7lb 3oz LM Bass on a Bubblegum color Zero.
