Whoah! I know what you're thinking, but this is a family channel. Thought i'd bring this up while its fresh on my mind - since i was discussing this with my son while we were practicing flippin while out fishing this saturday. (No, my wife did not suggest i start talking to him about rubbers but this IS how the conversation would go.) So, if you've ever stored or used some jigs or even spinnerbaits with rubber/silicone skirts for an extended period of time there has to be one thing that pisses you off - the rubber bands or attachment for the skirts breaking. Most anglers would probably just throw the bait away, slip on another "quick-skirt" or reapply another full skirt of choice. However, one simple thing i've found helpful and prevents this from ever happening is to simply tie the skirts on with fishing line. For what its worth, i tie mine on with 20 lb flourocarbon but anything should be better than nothing. This also prevents a bass from striking and ripping the skirt off your bait. Since i've been doing this, i stopped buying replacement skirts. Never need them.
