    last night i remembered why i always avoided plastics. they melted all into some other lures and it was like glue inside my one tackle box...dang! made a real sticky mess.

    any tips on avoiding this? how do you keep these things from melting, etc.

    do you keep your plastics in their own box.
  2. Some plastic baits have chemicals in them that react with other plastics. I keep plastics away from all other baits, bobbers. cranks. I also see alot of peple mixing colors with plastic baits. Some of these will bleed out!Bobbers are a big deal with heat and sunlight. Try sticking with a dark colored tackle box for the sun rays and keep your items separated as much as you can. Glenn
