A simple little tip that will save you time and money "Tips Contest"
 
I have had a lot of problems with my skirted baits like spinnerbaits and buzzbaits with the little rubberband on the skirts braking. It seems like after just a little use the rubber band holding the skirt rots and you end up with strips of rubber all over your tackle box or boat.
I found a simple fix for this by taking a sandwich bag or garbage bag wire ties, striping the paper off and getting down to just the little wire. I wrap it over the rubberband twice and twist tie it in place. Then trim the wires off close. You can't hardly even see the wire and the skirts stay on for years with no problem. I do this mod to every new spinnerbait, buzzbait, and skirted jig I buy or make (I make most of my own baits) Since I started doing this 3 years ago I have not lost a single skirt

Great idea!
What i do is buy the smallest wire ties I can and use these. You can really tighten up on the skirt insuring that it doesn't wind up in pieces and you have a naked bait!

Some call them zip ties, some call them wire ties. I score them from my buddy-the cable guy.

Thats a great tip, I have always used the really small wire ties also, you can get them in many colors. Those ties you are talking about really work well also, I keep some in my boat for all kind of emergencies. :thumbup01:

works GREAT!....fast and easy too. I wire tie some jigs that I make and it is not the easiest thing to do if you have never done it. zip ties are pretty simple though
