I buy a lot of my fishing stuff from Garage sales and Pawn shops. As you can imagine the jigs are all dirty and some are even melting together. My question is , Is there an easy way to clean this tackle ? I have been just putting them in a jar with some soap and shaking the tar out of it. Is there a better way? Thank you

I would spray "Pam" on them and wipe them. If you visit DIY Plastics forum DIY Soft Plastics (http://www.crappie.com/crappie/diy-soft-plastics/) you would see that old baits can be melted in the microwave and injected into molds to make new baits. http://www.crappie.com/crappie/diy-soft-plastics/161094-redo-plastic-baits.html or this one http://www.crappie.com/crappie/diy-soft-plastics/124440-melting-plastic.html

vegetable oil works well
