Not sure if it helps or hurts the flavor to store, Gulp, Zoom, Powerbait, Yum, and any other used plastics together but here is how it went today:
First fish hit an olive colored plastic. Estimated time in flavor concoction, 2 weeks. Drawback of old baits, they don't last long. 1 fish = 1 soft plastic retired permanently. Next up, same colored soft plastic (time in juice, ~5 months). Got a couple good hits but no connections. It wasn't fishable after it was ripped in half.
It wasn't the most ferocious action and I didn't catch any monsters, but having a successful outing using only old chewed up, seen their better days, soft plastics was an exciting challenge. One I hope to never repeat...but know I will.
