This will show you how to create your own plastic lures, mold them to the shape you want and impress your fishing buddies!

You will need...
InstaMorph - http://amzn.com/B003QKLJKQ
Hooks - I used circle hooks
DOA Glass Rattles - if you want your lure to make some noise.
Screw Eyes - 1/2" or smaller
pot to boil water

Step 1: Boil Water

First thing you need to do is start boiling some water for your instMorph.
Holy crap this is beautiful! I so gotta try this. You have inspired me sir.
Can u paint them or will they stay white and do they turn to a hard plastic or are they soft also do they sink by them selfs or should I add weight
Yes you can paint them or use color dye. Yes its a hard plastic once cooled. The ones I created sink roughly 1ft every 3 seconds, that is with no extra weight. only hook, eye screw and rattler (rattler has air in it). If I were to fish deeper water I would add more weight.
catch anything with em?
Haven't had a chance to use them yet. I'll post as soon as I do ;)
If you're worried about the holding strength of the eye and hook, you could connect them with a high-strength line or wire leader, or skip the eye and use a leader directly from the hook.
Good idea, I give that a try on the next batch. Going to work in color also.
Pretty cool. How well does that plastic hold onto the hook and eye screw?
I've pulled hard on the lure and hooks and screw hold well. Its a very hard plastic once its dries. When I have a chance to put it to the real test i'll update this post ;)
