About CPF Lures

About the CPF Lures Baits
Chuck & Jason noticed a world of opportunity to further enhance a bass fisherman's experience on the water. Mainly when it comes to durability of soft plastics. We wanted to solve an issue:
- Increase the soft plastic lures lifespan and fish catches
- Eliminate or reduce lure color fading and cloudiness
- Create the most economical products. Durable products that last
All CPF Lures baits are field tested on the Kissimmee Chain and are scientifically engineered for durability and usability. The baits come in 3 different soft plastics: a modified Plastisol, our proprietary 'Pro' formula, and PMR (Floating Plastic). With over 30 years of fishing experience between them, they know what it takes to make a great bait. So whether you're a weekend warrior or chasing bass professionally, CPF has the right bait for you.
Due to the color changes and action variances of certain products, some soft plastic lures are made with a modified Plastisol. These baits are more durable than other brands made of plastisol, have less salt, and are slow to fade.
Our Pro Formula is a proprietary product that provides extra durability over the Modified Plastisol but still soft and pliable. The Pro Formula makes it easy to penetrate the bait with a hook yet is durable enough to catch multiple fish on a single bait.
PMR Floating Plastic
The most durable and "super stretchy" material we offer is our PMR which is a floating plastic. Another proprietary material used in our floating line of plastics. This provides the ultimate durability while reducing the effort for hook penetration. This makes our PMR easier to pin and keep straight than other floating plastics on the market.
Rigging our PMR baits is simple. If you are looking for a weedless presentation, you must push your hook all the way through the bait and just hide the tip of the hook. If you bury the hook into the bait, hooksets will be almost impossible.
The soft plastics are durable enough to allow for more hook sets, allow you to catch more fish, yet are soft enough to puncture easily with a hook. The spongy feeling of the baits help fish hang on longer due to the true to life feeling.
