It may matter if you're selling baits whether they've been cured or not. I don't sell much of any baits and if I do they're small baits, less than 2". Thicker baits like the Senkos , frogs and creatures can stand some resting time and I won't argue that it helps keep them straight. The wax wigglers and Ice Ticklers have super fine tails and those need to be laid straight right out of the mold to be straight later in the box, but an hour in the fridge does it nicely on those. The fry baits like a day of rest but they need little more, unless its quite warm where you're at making the baits. I think a general rule is the thicker the bait or the more volume required to make the bait, the longer the rest time.....if selling them is in the offing or you are persnickety and need perfect baits. But the reality is that baits right out of the mold fish very well.
