Do you rinse your swim baits?

    I decided to beef up my saltwater lure arsenal before a soon to be trip, and i noticed that the swim baits had a slight odor. One smelled like paint (storm swim shad) and the other smelled...well just off. Does this happen to anyone else, and if yes do you rinse your swim baits before use?
