    does anyone melt old used plastics and poor them again? Was thinking about doing this for now on instead of throwing them away. And make Senkos

    I started pouring plastic baits last year. I usually use new plastic when pouring baits inorder to create custom colors. I have melted used baits and used them and it works fine, especially if your trying to duplicate the recipe such as a senko. Word to the wise if you do... Do not mix different brands when remelting, as every brand using different plastic.

    I usually have two handfuls of tore up Senkos after a day or two of heavy fishing. I need to start saving and pouring.
