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,

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!!!!

    • I gave mine a week and then mulched.  For me, its kind of a guessing game.  I don't think you want to mulch real warm ground and have the garlic grow too much under that mulch and on the other hand you don't want to let the ground start freezing.  I'm sure there is an ideal soil temp, but I guess I don't know what that is.  I mulched on a morning that we had frost on the ground.  I don't think you want a couple of weeks of warm sun to really get it growing.  
    • I was out on Saturday as well, and boy was it tough. We stuck a couple of fish and missed a couple more right away in the morning, then ran to the access to pick up the third guy, and when we got back to the spot the fish were shut down.

      We marked tons of fish all day but found very few biters. Still a heck of a nice day to be on the water, though!
    • Thanks for the link. I saw another lake on that list that was good bass fishing, but they had discontinued stocking trout several years back. Nice to see they resumed, even if it is only a few hundred. I'm fishing perch lake for sure on Friday, but am looking to add a 2nd lake to fish, since it's so small. Square lake, here on the Minnesota side would be ideal, but I can't get a hold of the DNR regarding trout stocking there. I'm down to an electric motor with my little boat anyway, as I need to do some carburetor work on the outboard.
    • I thought there wasn't any proof it was the russians and it could have been a 400lb guy on a bed.    I can't help but find some humor in the dems tactics, playing the Trumpers like a fiddle, and how the repubs are butthurt about it.   Plant some dudes in planned parenthood t-shirts and then watch the Trumpers to blow their tops and start punching people.

    • Might not want to fill that diaper up with claims of rigging and fraud too soon.  You've still got two weeks.
