Re: What glue for soft plastics?
I CAN tell you that super glue works great, in temperatures from -15 to 95+, on wet or dry plastic, every time. And the fish love it. We caught a 40-pounder today on a "Granby Tube" that was covered in super glue. The thing had so much glue on it that the top was clear instead of green! (uh oh, a new color for GFYODF to work on!)
You just have to manage it. I keep mine stored upright in the "lipstick" type container it comes in. I also keep a straight hook shank handy to re-open the clogged tube once in a while.
I've glued tubes, swim baits, jerk baits, and every kind of soft plastic bait there is with it, in fresh and salt water, in all weather. It works.
