Answers to frequently asked questions.


Why should I purchase from JAK’s Custom Baits?
At JAK’s Custom Baits we only use the best materials available to produce our baits. That includes the plastic, colorants, glitters, scents and even our packaging. All of our baits are made to order so they don’t sit around for extended periods of time. We also have an extensive selection of colors and bait styles to choose from. Most importantly JAK's Custom Baits have been proven to catch fish.
Do you resell baits made by someone else?
No. We only sell baits made by JAK’s Custom Baits.
Why hand pour baits?
Some baits such as some large swimbaits  are better suited for handpouring. Multiple layers of color can be poured for a very artistic and realistic look not possible with hand injection. In addition the layers can be varied in thickness and location.
Why Hand Inject baits?
Hand injection allows for bait designs with more detail and thinner appendages. Example: The legs of certain craw baits are too small in diameter to allow the hot liquid plastic to pass completely through to the end of the leg with gravity flow. A little “push” is needed to coax the plastic to the end and hand injecting provides this. Some special effects such as core shots and gradients are better suited for hand injection.
Is the same plastic used for all baits?
No.  Some baits perform better with a less flexible plastic and some do better with more softness and flexibility. An example of this would be a tube. Using a plastic that is too soft and flexible would result in the thin walls of a tube falling in on itself,  losing its shape and have in inability to hold a hook properly.
Why is salt added to commercially made baits?
Most of the commercial manufacturers use salt as a filler, since salt is less expensive than plastic. JAK’s Custom Baits does not use excessive amounts of salt unless required to achieve the proper fall rate or requested by the customer.
Does your plastic float?
Yes. Unweighted, unsalted plastic floats, allowing the pinchers on craws and the tails of worms to sway seductively off the bottom.
How long will it take to receive my order?
Most stock baits and colors will be made within 48 hours of receipt of your order. Taking into account cure time, packaging and shipping you will typically receive your order within 7 to 10 days.(Custom and large orders take longer.) The exception to this is in the spring and/or if there is a large tournament being held in the area. This typically is the busiest time of the year. If you have an emergency order contact us and we will do our best to accomodate you.
