I only make baits for myself. A lot of times I make them and fish them in the morning. I've never fished them where I had to wear gloves but pretty close. I personally don't think it makes any difference.
Lol....on wearing gloves. Been pretty close to that also.

For curing my baits -- the few that I do -- I lay them on pieces of an old bed liner and the grooves align each bait perfectly.

@BareKnuckleJigs you mentioned this.....

" Some baits, like curltails or ribbontails, are laid into pans to cure so they cure closest to the design of the mold. "

I have lizards with curtails so you recommend I lay them flat to cure and not hang these kinds of baits?
