Anyone use scent?

11 posts in this topic

Do any of you use scent?

I've always seen it in the stores, but there are so many choices... and I've never head of anyone that has had luck putting scent on their lures/bait.

What works? How often do you apply it?

Does it work?

What kind?

Now now. No reason to get all crazy & start wasting Buds just to "scent" you lure.

Most people use scent from there hands. Eating that salami and cheese cracker, or a bag of barrel o fun chips just before you bait up probally sends the chub into the depths with enough scent to get some attention from gamers. Trouble is however it would be a possible negative smell. I find this true when fish are biting light especially. See if this is true. Fish

I probably shouldn't tell everyone 'cause I don't want to mess up the catch rates too bad but... adding to the "Good Dr." (menthol of course), I like to use a bit of Berkley Walleye formula. I also use Yum crawfish and found that a dose of that will help to keep the Berkley stuff from freezing as bad.

Most days by the time I get to go fishing I have everything from gas to hydraulic oil to laundry detergent on me and a little cover scent is a good thing.

On anything I jig with, I pinch the shiner in half and give it a squirt in the cavity. Gives me confidence if nothing else. Usually smear a little on live baits to.

Gives the munchies a bit of a wang but worth it.

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
