    What to do with used soft plastics

    What do you do with your used soft plastic bass lures. I have about 20lbs of these used baits. Tried recycling by superglue and or melting with a small torch. No luck recycling. What do you do with your used baits?

    You need a chemical to melt the plastic
    There are many roads to travel
    Many things to do.
    Knots to be unraveled

    Bought some chocolate candy crab molds; melt platic in a cheap aluminum bin; pour; and you have a crab for those days when the flush is a bit weak.

    It'd be great to get a mold for something like one of the buzz frogs. If you melt a bunch of different colors it'll come out black and that's perfect for most topwater.
