Anyone use scent?

Recommended Posts

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.

      My opinion no. Nest maybe but time will tell.

      Don I'm surprised as how much the river sections are opening up. Checked from the 71 bridge towards Cold Spring and there's actually a bunch of open sections. Noticed the honey hole area, in the rivers mouth entering cedar island is really going quick also. Definitely looking better for a possible ice out on the lakes on the chain. Time will tell

      went out tonight and found between 24 to 28 inches of ice away from the current areas.    The river is now poking into shoe about 100 yards.   Don

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner
