First attempt at soft baits. I thought id share a pic.  I was aiming for a Yellow Chartreuse but I think I need a tad bit more of the coloring.

That was a good pour, just have to work on the color you want! Those will catch fish.

Just food for though, if you are using the 2X colorants, I generally use 8-10 drops of chartreuse to get that really bright color pop.  And that's for 4oz of plastic

But like gary said, those will catch fish.

Just a photo tip. Put the baits on a white, light blue or light gray background for pictures as the real color will pop out much better.

Nice injection though. 50% of the learning curve just eliminated!

Once you like a color and can duplicate and the fish tell you it work's go with it.

Slow Burn. I was using the essential series colorant chartreuse at 2 drops per 4 oz of plastic. Ctomt hank you for the tips and will start putting my jigs and worms on a white back ground from here on out. Thanks Musky and Walleye

Try paper toweling. In addition to being white and will bounce light thru and off the baits being pictured it has some texture of help soak up glare or reflection.
