Buying some swim baits. What is the best way to repair the holes from hooks.

I've heard that Mend-It plastic glue on tackle warehouse works really well but I've never used it.

Mend it works really well, I use on swimbaits frequently.

Tom,
I used to have a small tool that I bought that was made just for this and ran off of batteries kind of like a small soldering iron. I used it all of the time. One of the biggest bass I ever caught in a tournament was caught on a floating worm that I had repaired 3 times back in the day when the Fliptail Lizards were not being made. I still have a plastic bag with about 100 CrawTubes I need to fix now that I am doing a little more fishing these days. Added a few more after fishing Cedar Creek yesterday. I will look and see if I can find it but it was pretty easy to plug up holes and repair tears. It also gave a kind of funky neat look to some colors of baits. If I find it I will let you know and you are welcome to it.

Oatey 31013 PVC cement. It has a tendency to gel after several uses, but if you cut the dauber off and pour small amounts out of the can rather than dipping a brush repeatedly into the can when applying it, this is minimized.

Mend It is awesome as is the Spike It brand soft plastic glue. Both work well on hollow body frogs too.
