Rigging: Securing Hooks with Softbait Glue


With the growing trend toward larger soft baits glue begins to play a bit of a role in successful fishing. If you think about it, your soft-bait can be flying though the air at speeds topping 100mph at the peak of your cast and asking the soft bait to hang on just small portions of your hook can be a lot to ask of your bait.

Why use glue for securing baits?

  • 1.  Increases the power you can put into your cast.
  • 2. Save on plastic costs.
  • 3. Increase your soft-bait’s effectiveness.

 
Tip: A little goes a long way. Be sure not to use too much glue as it will run down the sides of the bait and stick to your fingers! Allow glue to cure for 10 seconds or so.
