I have a plastic container containing a bunch of bottles of lure and some bait that have metal lids. They were left in my garage sealed up for several months. Most of the tops are rusted and the labels are pretty much gone. Is there any way to salvage this ?

I was thinking about emptying it all into a larger container and mixing it together. Maybe adding some chunks of beaver meat and using as a bait ? Would additional Sodium Benzoate be needed ?

Any other suggestions?

Unless the lids are rusted through donít worry about it. If they are just get a new lid. The lures are still good. Just about all my baits and lures that have metal lids are rusted, coyotes and foxes donít seem to care. Rust occurs in nature all the time, it doesnít bother them. If your lures are dried out just squirt a little urine in them. If itís a coyote lure use coyote urine, fox lure use fox, etc. itíll fix em right up. Rusty lids is nothin to get bent out of shape about
