    Gettin' the stink off (new swimbait)

    Hey Jason, didn't see your post there. I don't think all stripers will be turned off by the stink as many of them are full bore into attack mode when they hammer the bait. But,,, I've had many big ones (the really big ones) take the lure lightly and slowly load up the rod when trolling, or they...

    Gettin' the stink off (new swimbait)

    Thanks G, Is Evil E the Unibutter guru, bait maker? After these out-gas for a few days I'm going to throw them into a bag of attractant and leave them there for a week or so to soak up the goodness. Here's something for the peeps wondering if the plastic lure will suck up the attractant, I...

    Gettin' the stink off (new swimbait)

    OK sounds good, greazzzy baits it is I tried the baits in a bag with scent, then floating in luke warm water,,, but I failed miserably as the friggin bag got a hole in it and they were swimmin in their own juices (I'll let you guys run with that one)... After pulling them out of the watered...

    Gettin' the stink off (new swimbait)

    Thanks guys, I like Capt G's idea. I'm heading down to BPS later today and will see what they have for attractants. First thing that popped into my head when G said hot sauce was Tapatio, hey, you never know.... These are AC Casitas swimbaits that I found on Ebay,,, couldn't pass up the price...

    Gettin' the stink off (new swimbait)

    I just got a couple big swimbaits that are pretty smelly (kind of a paint/petroleum smell) and need to clean them up. What's the best thing to cut the stinky/oily coating? I was thinking of washing them with dish washing soap to cut the oily coating, but don't want to get soap soaked into...

    FISH LAKE , UTAH

    Looks like you guys had fun up there, nothing better than getting the kiddies into fish. How were the temps during the day and night? I was thinking of dragging my son up there in a few weeks if it's nice, not hot. We usually go up there mid-May and freeze out butts off camping, days are...

    Seasickness

    I didn't read through the whole thread, but Transdermscop (scop patches) are OTC in Canada. $20-30 and you can have the patches at your door step in a week. canadianpharmacy.com I haven't seen Scopace there though.

    Doesn't anyone want to fish this year?

    To the question,,, Yes. I had the choice of fixing the truck or going on the Legend trip yesterday where they got into the albies pretty good,,, I chose wrong and fixed the truck. (Ever feel like kicking yourself in the ass?)

    I smell a rat...

    I was responding to Billy, Capt G. Sounded like the lures he was having problems with were wood. Epoxying the fastener holes basically turns that area into plastic, but I do agree that wood lures are kind of a PITA,,, 1 crack in the finish and they start to suck water. Sooo, what's this...

    I smell a rat...

    How are the screw eyes attached into the plug, just screwed into the raw wood? If so I could see them working themselves out and shredding the wood. I epoxy or Super Glue the SS screw eyes in the wood lures I make and never had a problem with a lure coming apart,,, tested on stripers up to...
