Okay, I know that lots of folks on this forum make baits commercially and are very protective of their recipes and I don't blame them.  However, with the number of newbies we have recently added to the fold I thought it might be a nice gesture if we each gave 1 recipe and the bait we like to use it on.  I really like to use the 2.25 inch small fry for crappie fishing (especially under a slip bobber in the winter, or vertical jigging).  My most successful color has been a laminate

TOP

4 Ounces plastisol
4 Drops of X2 Blue

BOTTOM

4 Ounces plastisol
30 drops heat stabilizer
1/16 tsp pearl powder
1/4 tsp holo silver glitter (.15)

This has been a great color for me.  How about yours?
I find it incredible that I have to explain to a grown American citizen that taking a knee during the National Anthem is disrespectful.

My Bluegill....used in 1.5" Thump-Its

Clear plastic,

equal parts of green, blue, purple and copper glitter, .015 size..... as much as you like in the clear.

a small dab of uv enhancer powder.

I shoot up a pile of solid chartreuse, lop off the tails and use the tails behind the bluegill. Killer color on crappies.

From fishingskirts.com.   Powder paint B800 Magic Craw.   Be sure and mix in cold plastic before you warm it up. I use about 1 teaspoon per 4 ounces of plastic. Use this in all my crawfish molds. Makes a very good bait! Also use this to make jig trailers.

MF has a lot of great colors, but their gp is one that I never really cared for.  I mix equal parts of the 2 spike it Gp s.
