Correction in my last post...... I meant to say the jigheads with strong hooks cost to darn much.

hey ragfly, that looks like the remnance from a pour off!.. I brought home 17lbs of jigs that day.. me and Dave just finished a mini pour off and did a slug of small ones 1/4 3/8 1/2 5/8.. I was so low I almost bought some

I need to pour some small ones myself. I am placing an order for hooks today.... I was playing with the idea of the weedless bananahead jig, DO-it has a mold up to 5/8oz. I was thinking of the Y-guard instead of the fibers. Do you think it would be worth a try?

I've never poured any but have used 'em in some nasty spots.. they work good, you miss some fish, but won't hang up as much.. I don't like the fiber jobs much.. I don't know if the fiber is too stiff or what but missed too many fish when I tried them..

Favorite rubber? Hmmm...
A nine inch, black, rigged sluggo rules at night if you don't have live eels. I rig mine with two hooks, and pencil weights embeded in the plastic to add a little casting distance. If I get some time soon I'll post a photo tutorial on how to rig them this way,,, if anyone is interested.

Long Answer: I'm not sure what the base polymer is on the Storm products but the basic strategy for development of that type of polymer is to highly load it with an un-reactive plasticizer. First, that chemical strategy is cheap, it creates the flexibility they're after, and because it doesn't cross-link into the polymer, it leaches out over time along with the scent (also a non-reactive ingredient) and produces that oily feel and the different flavors/scents.

Yeah, I know....way to much info.

Short answer...no sticky.

'Ask Elmer'

Almost spit-up my coffee when I saw that.

Sorry, I get carried away sometimes when someone asks a question about a plastic or adhesive. I guess I thought everybody who sees an interesting application for a plastic or adhesive thinks to themselves, "I wonder how they formulated that and why"....guess not huh!

'Ask Elmer'

I use the storms 4-6" in mullet, bunker, and pearl work great. if the bait is small try a 5" storm jerking minnow reel and jerk, pause etc, works great just a p in the a to cast cus there so lite.

Hi Ragfly,
That's a good step by step instruction. I do it a little differently, but same basic idea. This idea has been around for a long time. I used to rig rubber worms this way when I was a kid fishing for bucket mouths.

In my opinion the only drawback to rigging sluggos this way as opposed to using a jig head is if you are trying to fish them very close to the bottom. With the hooks pointing down, you'll get hung up more/catch more salad than you do with a sluggo on a jig head.
Both methods have their strong points.
