Scent

6 posts in this topic

Does anyone add scent to any of their baits? I just read an article my brother sent me. Game Fish oil a guy saturates hi bucks with and adds to jerk baits and crankbaits. Does anyone use scent on their musky lures, and if so which brand is suggested? Dr. Juice and Pro cure were a couple other brands.

IMO don't waste your time and money.

Does a lion run up to a zebra and then decide to eat?

I don't even think it's possible to mask the scent of deer hair, marabou, or paint and epoxy. You'll just get your hands greasy and boat messy.

Does a musky run up to a bait and follow it slowly to your boat without eating it? Maybe because it looks like something to eat and doesn't smell like something to eat...must be confusing.

Honestly I'm just stirring the pot, though. Greasy, oily, nasty stuff. I used to put Dr. Juice pike formula on big spinner baits for pike, but I caught more bass than pike everytime I tried that stuff.

I have had success with some Dr. Juice product. Took time and experimentation to try and narrow it down. Only one type works IMO, and its not the "flavor" you'd think. I absolutely believe it can make the difference on slow moving topwaters in particular but they have to be wood and be roughed up enough to hold it a little bit. Anything synthetic and don't bother, but it can lay a nice "please come bite me trail" to a predators senses when used with wood. This has proven to be a no brainer for me when going back to an earlier "follower" and getting it to bite, and really many times you don't even have to come back, put the right bait on, give it a few pumps of the juice, let it rip. Explosion nearly sure to follow.

It does work, but every product is not created equally and many guys give it up without really giving it a chance. Why are the "scented" soft plastics and stuff like Gulp and Powerbait still being talked about, why are more walleyes and panfish and pike and bass than ever being caught on stuff like that? Because if done properly it can really pay off. No different for muskies.

    • My buddy found this today! Great day to be out! future booner!
    • He only got one? Had 3 more in my pocket!!; I didn't want them in cold spring!
    •   http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/320316-trump-clarifies-remarks-on-nonexistent-sweden-incident-i-got-it   Nah, he just got it from Fox News. Where else would he be able to get accurate information about what is happening in the world?  
    • I have those on my 2 place trailer. Also have a set of plastic ski skins to go under skis but havnt tried them yet.
    • Hard not to look in the mirror and admit our meddling all over the world over the past 60 years has brought us nothing but trouble. You can shift blame to some radical religion if you want, plenty of blame there too but why force ourselves to step on that hornets nest in the first place when we didn't have to. But hey we are masters of destabilizing and regime changes and I don't think that is an accident. You can blame some religion if you want but I doubt Christians or you or I would be any different had some other country toppled our government and took over our country. Of course it is always in the name of peace and freedom, or at least that is what plays on the news.
    • https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/19/us/politics/donald-trump-ukraine-russia.html   To summarize for those too lazy to read the article:   A Putin-backed Ukranian lawmaker, a convicted mobster that's friends with Donald Trump, and his Russian-linked personal lawyer (who's being investigated for, guess what, his links to Russia) came to Michael Flynn (fired for lying about his contacts with Russia) with a plan that would essentially gift (the illegally annexed sovereign Ukrainian territory of) Crimea to Russia, and lift all related sanctions.
    • Spent about 4hrs there today with my family and had a great time. My twin 6yr olds had a blast and came home with lots of freebies.   im not a wine and dine hunting lodge guy so many booths didn't appeal to me. But lots of good dog stuff and conservation talk.   i pet and scratched more dogs behind the  ear today than I have in my entire life. Looking forward to Sioux Falls hosting it next year.
    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all.
