Plastics that are discontinued

Postby bpettus2 » Tue Sep 04, 2018 6:24 pm

What plastics discontinued did you stock up on when you found out you couldn’t get it anymore . Tom Mann French Fry worms used to be at Walmart in the flw packages . I called Mann’s baits about 10 years ago and bought there remaining stock. Also just did this with net baits and a discontinued color .

Local pawn shop had tons of trigger x plastics. Don't remember seeing grubs though. Think I bought a few craw/trailer style plastics. Does that brand still exist?

Oh dang, looks like Rapala is discontinuing the whole brand. That's no good. I killed walleye with the swimming grub. Something about the smell and unique swimming action.

You should leave a few untouched, like worst color you have. Then clone em' one day. It isn't easy work, but can be done to make a mold to another mold then pour your own. The specific scent would be a tough task though.

That's a good idea, but I think it might be too much of a task. I recently picked up some zman scented grubs, we will see how those do.

Finally ran out about a year ago so got 10+ years. Berkley Trout Craw 1” in Pumpkin Seed, caught everything from small panfish to large bass and everything inbetween. Once they stopped making them I hit up every store around till I couldn’t order them anymore.
