View Full Version : Tackle question - sticky tubes?

02-28-2006, 09:42 AM
Hey guys - I bought some bulk tubes about two years ago and forgot about them. I happened across them last night and was putting them in my box but they have lost their lubricant and in fact have gotten sort of sticky. They are still very much usable, I just can predict if that box gets the least bit warm, I am going to have a mess. Is there a product or a home remedy to lubricate my tubes?

Heh, Heh - lubricate my tube. BUT SERIOUSLY, any advice?

Get some worm oil or fish scent and put some in the bag check this place out for both. http://www.lurecraft.com/catalog.htm look under the additives they have some listed.

Cooking oil should fix them right up.

I use mineral oil...no odor and it preserves soft plastics very well.

I use spray PAM, please don't tell the wife... In the past she had found a can on my boat as I told her it was used to fry my fish... Also a great oil for the knife...
