Work is slow today and I am bored so here's my question.
Why would someone use wd40 for a scent or cover scent? I think it's mostly kerosene. In the name of covering up scents on our hands like gas and oil. That don't need to be in our streams anyway, right? There's just to many good options out there.
I use nibbles or minnows myself if at all.
"MERRY CHRISTMAS" to all of you!

It used to be believed (and probably still is by some) that WD40 was made from fish oil. That's probably how it originated. But, I agree, it's not something you want to put on your bait.

Slab sauce works well and stays on plastic jigs longer.

Actually, WD-40 is mostly Aliphatic Hydrocarbons (solvent) and Petroleum Base Oil (oil).

Doesn't have "fish oil" & never did (unless we're talking Jurassic Period fish, maybe :Doh: )

And FWIW ... even the WD-40 Company put out a statement that its product was NOT condoned by them as a "scent" product, and do not recommend it for that use.

Might be something to consider

As it's ingredients are :
Active Ingredients: Preparation H is available in ointment, cream, gel, and suppository product forms. The Ointment contains Petrolatum 71.9%, Mineral Oil 14%, Shark Liver Oil3% and Phenylephrine HCl0.25%.

Think I'll stick with Slab Sauce or nibblets

Yeah, the fish bite, pucker up and don't let go !!
I knew it had shark oil in it, and learned this from an old black man who loaded his bucket fishing on the bank.
I think it should be marketed as a dual purpose product!!!

I probably have, and it was probably right here on this site !! I've also heard of people using Ivory Soap for Catfish (it's made from animal & vegetable "fats").

I don't recommend using any of these three products (WD40 - Prep H - Ivory Soap) as a fish attractant scent, and never have personally used any of them. We've already got enough pollutants in our waters, let's not worsen the matter by using products with petroleum products, other "oils", or pharmaceuticals. :Doh:

I'm not an advocate, Crappie Nibbles for me, but I knew you would offer good insights, and you did. Thanks

i have used about anything you can think of. I just purchased and started using the slab sauce and will not go back. I still will use nibble's when they are biting minnows. The sauce is the ticket.

Like all fishing lures made... scents or attractant sprays catch the fisherman's $$$$$ first.

I've tried spray scents on bluegill many times. They do help attract a fish to the scent, but a few drops of scent is washed off by a billion gallons of water real fast.

I'd have to spray the lure with attractant about every couple of casts... therefore, needing to go buy more expensive scents.

Now, I just use a cheap lure.

Had a guy tell me that he puts 40 on his jigs when fishing. Tried his best to make me believe him.

Bluegill, you might want to do a search on crappie dot com about all the tests and trials that have been done with slab sauce. Then, do a YouTube search, then a google search. After that, I'll point you to a few published articles about it.

In other words, you don't know what you are missing. There is even an article that shows that the scent still is putting a slick in the water even after more than 30 casts.
