Soft Bait Repair: Mend-It "Glue". Anyone Try This?

2 posts in this topic

I saw a little blurb in an In-Fisherman's article on soft bait for pike and they had a sentence or two about this product used to "fuse" soft baits together. The solution is a not a glue (even though he mention glue in their product name), its more of a catalyst that melts/fuses the plastic back together. You can get it on your fingers and whip it right off with no residue since it is not glue.

Well, I checked their (Mend-it) HSOforum and they had a demo video where a guy is ripping and cutting senkos, basstrix, and some other higher end swimbaits into the worse possible shape. The guy then proceeded to restore all the baits to practically their original state. He did the entire demo without an edit, so there were no camera tricks.

I was wondering if anyone has tried this stuff and have any opinions on it or possibly heard any first hand reports on how this stuff works. Its not cheap (about $12 for a 1 oz bottle), but if really works it will more then make up for itself in me not having to re-buy all the soft body baits I have.

Thanks In Advance,

Nick

I haven't used that stuff, but I have used Hawg Seekers Tackle's "the ultimate instant glue system."

That is a glue, however. Put some of the glue on, spray on the insta set and back to fishing. Have used it on Bulldawgs and it seems to work....

That mend-it stuff sounds even better.

$12 is spendy, but if you are a musky guy and one lure costs $30 and some of that fixes it, well it is easily worth the price!!!!

    •   All good things come to an end sometime. At some point we realized that the cabin that we always wanted just was not going to happen for us. So, for less then just the taxes and cost of up keep on a cabin we have a park model camper where we can have family and grand kids come up and go fishing any weekend we want. 
    • We had our permy site for 14 years. It was a blast the first 10. Neighbors changed, other things changed. We got tired of it and finally had enough. It was getting so with the yearly fee we felt we needed to be out there every weekend.   I still fish the lake in the fall but don't miss it. Now we can go to other places to do something different. With that said I'd do it all over again.    
    •   Well after inspecting, I'm really starting to lean that the blade mounts are bent. I can't find any pictures or anything......so I'm not sure. If these just take a normal shaver blade.....then they gotta be bent.....Anyone have any insite?
    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
