Deitz,

Do you use this formula yourself? If so, where do you get the non-scent shampoo?

Thanks,

Mysterio

they had the same formula in field and stream except they used 1/2 cup baking soda. You should be able to find no-scent shampoo at any outdoors store, i know i have seen it at Gander Mountain.

yes I use this stuff, like its going out of style... Believe it or not.. I use it on my gym shoes, we use it when one of our cats pees on the carpet.. its ike magic!... I will give you one hint.. try and get the baking powder to disolve in the water first before you add the peroxide and the soap. And when you let the stuff sit, be sure to not put a cap on it... I then just put it in a spray bottle.

Well I can make a gallon of the stuff for about $2.50 and I go thought about 12 spray bottles of this a year by letting my dad and brother and friends use it when we go in the wood and They love the stuff and I also swear by it so it probally saves me about $80 a year. Last year I spent about $15 to make it and I made like I said about 12 bottles (or more. Figure that if You buy the stuff it is $8 per bottle (just a guess) That is $96 I would have spent. Plus this way you to not get skimpy with it and spray down good with it.

Well, Distilled water may cost you $1 a gallon?.. maybe a little more.. peroxide, maybe another $1... The baking soda I always just have laying around the house anyway, same as no scent shampoo.. and I have always felt scent killer was very expensive... so I didn't use very much to save money.. Now I figure I can make a gallon of it for like what?... $3... I think you are saving a ton... and if mixing 4 ingredients is trouble... then buy the stuff...I figgure it took me about 5 mins to mix it up?

Thanks Guys.

I have an R/O(reverse osmosis)system in my house.Do you think the water from this would substitute for distilled?

Dehumidifier water works in place of distilled water. I used hydrogen peroxide that came from a liquid non clorinated shock for pools and hot tubs. I read the stuff in the brown bottles has something else in it that can reduce it's effectiveness. I used the green liquid body soap instead of laundry soap and it bubbled up quite a bit. The green stuff has an active ingredient that inhibits bacteria growth.

The recipe I saw is:

1 quart distilled H20

1 quart 3% H10

1 oz. liquid scent free laundry soap

1/4 cup baking soda

I wanted to save a few pennys so I went to the local dollar store and found every thing but the sent free soap.

baking soda 2 for a buck

peroxide 2 for a buck

distilled water 1 gallon a buck

sent free laundry soap 6.53 bucks

mix time 5-7 min

if this works and I score the monster buck its "priceless"

Is the baking soda suppose to clump up after it sits a couple of days or should I add more distilled 02. I stirred it up and it seamed to disolve again I'll check it in a day or two, to see what its like. I follow the directions to a tee, except doubling it

      Im staying at Arrowwood July 2-5 and looking to catch some 'eyes for a fish fry or 2. Never been to the area before so I dont have much to go by other than my overall knowledge of Walleye fishing elsewhere. Ill probably be fishing early mornings and dusk for obvious reasons, but also because my boat will be used for the majority of the days for entertaining the girlfriends family. Im open to fishing not only Darling, but Carlos and Le Homme Dieu as well. 

      From what ive read and can see on Google Earth, the lakes are pretty clear, and from experience, usually means tough walleye fishing for this time of year. -I grew up fishing Woman Lake in the Longville/Hackensack area and that lake is as clear as they come. The only way we can snag some 'eyes in the summer is to fish the deep weed lines. Is that the approach I should be taking on these lakes? Does dragging rapalas across mid-lake flats produce? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Thanks,

      Gavin.

      Ha, I've read stories about that lake being filthy. And I know about those warnings on the link you posted I just wonder if this stuff is blown out of proportion. Reason being I can't find any confirmed cases of people having mercury poisoning from eating freshwater fish. I know mercury poisoning does exist but can we really get it from fish? You'd think if we could then there would be cases down south where folks are eating catfish from the Mississippi.    We ate a few 30+" Pike during the ice season, I ate more than my wife, and I only did that from lakes that are safer according to DNR and MDH fish tissue surveys. I kept it to once a week for her and I ate the rest. I went over the one meal a week rule several times for myself, but then went a while without taking home fish while the season was closed. I'm not glowing yet haha.    I also don't understand why walleye are always the riskiest fish to eat per those surveys when Pike are above them on the food chain.

      Surely they have a Terrova on the floor. Doesn't matter what size THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME. Also, boat dealers have showrooms with all kinds of stuff mounted on boats.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...
