fish attractants

5 posts in this topic

does anyone use those spray on fish attractants (I have "Fool a fish")? They say they reflect light and all of that stuff but do they really work? I can never really tell when its the spray that gets the fish to bite or its the bait or both.

I don't know about the spray scents, but I have been experimenting using gulp worms and they are scented, against real worms and the real McCoy has been out doing em 10 to 1...it might be what I'am, or am not doing, but I've been using em since last summer and I'm not real impressed.

Don't know if that is a fair test. Seeing as the real worms are real. You can't make an artificial move like a real live bait can. Maybe the scented vs unscented would be a better test. I feel there is an advantage in cool water, spring and fall using the scented plastic and or adding scent.

I took a guided trip on Lake Mille Lacs early in June with a PWT Pro. He swore by the stuff. Always sprayed some on his nightcrawler and would also pinch off the tail to get some extra natural scent in the water. Both seem to make sense. I don't think the special juice can do any harm.

BB...I don't know if it's fair either? Wasn't thinking scientific, or about fair, never entered my mind, just weither they work or not up against the scent of the real Jackson.

Let me tell ya though, the chunk of crawler I usually had on looked more like a Cremete Macaroni then it did a crawler, so it had to be the scent....same with a wax worm, it has to be the scent, cause once they are skewered, they don't be movin much!

      Had a good day with some good friends today.  Was nice to have a MANY fish day for a change this season.  The crappies weren't the biggest but we sorted through for a decent fry.  The pikers were a nice addition for the last weekend of the season.  We fished from 8 to 22 feet with a vast mix of presentations.   The oddest thing was the start to the day when this button buck slammed into the deck railing and broke its neck while we were getting ready to go out.  We called in for the permit and enjoyed some fresh blackstrap with the fresh fish for dinner.

      That sucks when you lose gear. Tom way to go trying to find the owner of  the lures.
