scent


Recommended Posts

I think the real thing and some scents can make a difference if the fish are somewhat neutral. The very aggressive fish will just swim in and slam anything. I have used everything from Anise oil to WD40. Does it help? I know one thing, it doesn't hurt. I have stopped using the WD40 because of the environment. I wouldn't rush out and buy some of the high dollar snake oil. You can make your own. Anise Oil and Mineral Oil in a spray bottle. Garlic is another cover scent.

I don't know if it makes any difference but, I always take extra care to not touch the lure any more than I have to (Mostly touch the sides when putting on). I also try not to get gas on the way to fishing. When un hooking fish I like to use the Needle Nose pliers.

What kind of ratio due you use to make your scent ?

Get a bottle small bottle of anise oil and a bottle of mineral oil from one of the Mart stores. Dump it all in a spray bottle and shake. It will last for a couple of years.
