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.
