How come almost no one uses stinger/stingray/flat tail grubs anymore? i have used them for piers as a bluefish lure and they seem to work better than curly tail ones(mroe darting action with these). nowdays few places even sell them.
I believe I still have over 100 Manns StingRay Grub tails in white, from the 1970s, and 1980s, when I fished them successfully for trout at nite on Slims Pier, the Oceanic Pier, in the inlet in OC. Caught and saw billions of trout up to 10 pounds caught with these.
By the way, does anyone know when slim passes away? He was one hell of a nice guy to all. If he were alive he would be well over 100..
I've heard from older guys that they slayed many trout using white sting ray grubs. I've seen them sold at Bass Pro. However, I do not personally know any one that uses them... maybe that could be a reason to use them!
there is this soft plastic glue where you can glue torn palstic baits back to gether that is as stroing as the original lure and mic match colors. like you can cut the green tail off a grub and add it to black grub where the tail is betten off and etc.
I use an old pot over a gas burner in the back yard(my outdoor tackle shop)
I save all of my plastic baits that get ratty in a container. Sometimes, I will separate the colors and have been known not to. It makes some rather interesting colors. Pour into the mold and it will harden.
If I am short, I will buy some commercial plastic with color and use that. You can color it any color that you wish. A homemade Plaster of Paris mold will last a long time if coated inside with epoxy. C2
