I've got about 20 or so of the plastic boxes that I store my plastic baits in, The ones that I use more often are fine, but my problem is with the baits that I don't use very much, like my tube baits, grubs, and a few others like Z-hogs among others,,they have built up water in the box real bad, so I have taken them all out of their boxes and spread them out and let them dry, then I have cleaned all the boxes, my question is, does anyone know of any type of oil that I can put on these baits to keep them looking good,,??
The ones that had a lot of salt in them seem to be worse, I don't like my baits looking dry, I like them to have a oil look .. Thanks for any suggestions..

Just keep the plastics in the original bag and organize then with gallon Ziploc bags. Plastics come with oil in the bag.

Believe it or not that's how I store a lot of my baits that I have,but don't have a lot of different colors.. And I agree that it's a good way..

This is what I do and they will maintain their original color for years. Put alike baits in same bag.

The only thing I would change is I bought 100 bags off Amazon that were 2 gallon size and 4 mils thick. Very thick and sturdy bags for about 40 cents each.

i keep them in the original bag they come in, organize them in a plastic tackle box up-side-down to make it easier to see the colors when opening the box. I don't like them bleeding on other colors, this will happen more rapidly in the summer months. If I want to fish a true pumpkin color, I don't want the residue of a watermelon red flake etc....on the bait. Hope this helps?

I like letting my baits bleed together sometimes. June bug+ Houdini is a good one. As far as organizing them.. ziplock bags is your best bet.

Thanks for all the info, I'm going to try that oil Curtbass was talking about, I keep a lot of my plastics in 1gallon bags, and that's ok , but my Triton is set up to hold them plastic trays really nice, and I can find what I'm looking for a lot fast because I know where every box is located, if I need something that I have in bags it seems like I'm digging through a lot of bags just to find it, I'm a tackle junkie, I have so much stuff, I've been culling stuff out of my boat for 2 days now just trying to get it better organized,, I am a captain for 2 high school boys this year and when they need something they can make a real mess digging through my bags.. Lol .. But one of the boys is my son so I really enjoy it..

I have several worm bags pretty full and use oil too, never had a problem, I know I've had some for over 15 years.

PS: it'll only take 1 drop in each bag to scent & keep them slick & oily. Ive used all kinds of scent sprays,dips etc thru the years & it always winds up back at anise oil. LOL. It's also used to flavor licorice.

If you don't have the original bags, you can find them on eBay. They are special double wall bags made to hold the scent in. Regular zip locks won't last.

You may want to try out www.jbsfishsauce.com If you are just wanting oil in the bag without scent just get worm oil. This fish sauce has scent and worm oil to put in the bags like a marinate. Hope this helps.
