Scents and Such

Is it the scent or the action?  For my money it's the action that draws attention, and the scent that keeps the lure in the fish's mouth long enough for a hookset.  So, it makes sense to use scents when the fish need a little extra coaxing or you need a bit more confidence in a sketchy bite.  For soft plastics, I'd consider scents especially desirable.

Folks fishing plastics make good use of scents, noticing that the bass hold onto the lure longer, percentages favor the guys who use the smelly stuff.  I really like using the squid flavored 1 oz. squid from Smelly Jelly.  The stuff has the right smell, and it stays on a bait well.  It's a perfect finishing touch on a squid imitation lure.  A lot of guys are also making use of the baitfish scents in their halibut fishing.  Soak a sponge, insert it up into a hollow-body squid along with your hook and/or weight and drop her down and out.  Lots of ways to use these products beyond simply spreading on your plastics, but that's a good enough reason to grab a few of our offerings.

NEW for 2012 - BioEdge
Another excellent new scent system is the BioEdge WAND. The BioEdge product is semi-solid concentrated extracts from natural baits containing oils, pheromones, amino acids and enzymes. The Wands are designed like a gluestick, they stick to all non-absorbent surfaces and stick to 'em without washing off too quickly. This is similar to a Chapstick tube - well a bit wider and longer, but you get the idea - it's darn easy to use. The wand holds enough scent to last a LONG time and it holds up for a year or so. The scent is applied to any bait, soft plastics, jigs, hard baits, and it will do it's job for a good 20-30 minutes time. Apply the scent to dry baits for best results. It's a powerful all natural scent, made from the real critters themselves. So, Sardine scent is indeed made from sardines, not a chemical concoction. It's a great way to mask unwanted scents, and provide a bit more attraction.

Pro-Cure is another exceptional manufacturer of fish attracting scents.  Pro-Cure is very appealing for a number of reasons. Their products are less "chemically" treated, made out of the real thing with some additional flavors and oils.  Make use of scent on any hard or soft bait for added attraction.  Fish will indeed hang on longer and take your lure with more gusto if it tastes natural.  With the addition of fish and bait oils in the mixtures you also benefit from a nice scent trail.

Consider "curing" your plastics in a baggie with some of these scents for an hour or so prior to use.  You'll like the results, as will the fish you're seeking.  The baby octopus baits can be quite effective for bottom dwelling fish.  Again, prior to use, take out a couple baits and give 'em a rinse or shake off the excess packing liquid.  Soak them in one of the oil or sauce scents below for greater effectiveness.  The sauces come in 2 ounce bottles.
