Which Soft Plastic Lures Can Be Left On A Hook (And Which Ones Can’t)?
By: Luke Simonds on October 8, 2019
We’ve all been there…
You accidentally leave a Gulp lure rigged up for too long and next thing you know it’s shriveled up, hard as a rock, and nearly impossible to wiggle off the hook.
That might have you thinking, “What other lures should I not leave on the hook?”
If you’ve ever asked yourself that question, you’re not alone!
People ask me that several times a week, so I put together this video to finally give you an answer.
Enjoy, and be sure to leave a comment if I missed any brands!
Which Lures Can Be Left On A Jig Head? [VIDEO]
If a lure is made of a water-based plastic, like Gulp and Fishbites, then you should not leave them on a hook and out of their packaging or sealed containers for too long.
A good rule of thumb to keep in mind is this: if there is liquid in the packaging, then they shouldn’t be left out.
On the other hand, brands like Z-Man, DOA, and Zoom have no liquid in the packaging, and are ok to leave rigged up and out of their packaging.
Are there any other brands of lures that you don’t want to leave out of the package?
Let me know in the comments below!
