I'm pretty sure this has been asked before so if it has I'm sorry for bringing it up again. I got some baits mate classic bass and smelly jelly bass feast. I was wondering, do you guys belive in this stuff or no? I'm sorry if I get annoying to you guys about bass fishing. I'm just trying to get as much advice as I can from every one. You guys are a big help.

I believe in it especially coffee spray. I think it is more of something to make it stand out and cover up the smell of us.

I was reading about this subject last night and as everything else about scents for bass, it was inconclusive. Basically the author said it works sometimes and sometimes it doesn't. What I did find interesting is how much KVD uses scents, and that's a good enough reason for me to start using them more.

Probably help a little.

Kinda like Hydrowaves, Color C-lectors, lures with flashing lights in them, camo line and on and on.

I'd also be interested to know from the guys who have ridden with pros how much they have seen scents used in big tourneys.

I think they give you that extra millisecond to feel the fish before they spit out your lure. If I spray crawfish scent on a jig, and Larry the Largemouth hold onto it for another second, that's a little longer for me to recognize the bite and get him.

If it gives you confidence, use it.

They hold on much longer, i proved that at the fish tank at BPS.
Had a 19 lb swim around with a plastic worm in it's mouth
for count of 45 seconds, huge crowd watching.
They like the taste.

Lots of studies have been done on this. Unless your fishing an area very slowly and for a long period of time there is no "attractant effect." That is to say most fisherman don't sit in a spot long enough for a scent to diffuse enough to actually draw a fish in. In fact, very often the fish may wind up being attracted to where you were and not where you are. Now in terms of getting a fish to hang on longer, I believe certain scents can definitely help achieve this. Are they worth it? I think it might give you a slight edge, but when you consider costs and time lost it is probably pretty close to a wash. All that said, my biggest fish did come on a bait dipped in some sauce.

I have the Minnow, Night Crawler, Crayfish and Craylic made by a Biotech that test scent on the aggressiveness of all species of fish as a job. He works for the Government, go figure. Ha.. He absolutely knows what the Bass like and don't like.

He is surprised that we catch any fish after handling our lures that are not scented. The human odor is the most deterrent of all scents even over pollutants like gas and oil. The most abundant and natural pray in that lake is what they like the best and come to it fastest to check it out. Bass strike these chum bags as mentioned above more often than other scents available and then some. Always use scents to mask the human odor if nothing else. It just makes sense to me to use what they like best and they are listed in the order of preference.

I use all of them and supplied the Craylic to replace one of the best Crayfish and Garlic scents that we can't find any longer. I use the minnow on all my fast moving baits like spinner bait skirts, the Night Crawler on all slow moving plastics and finesse worms, and the Crayfish on my pitching, flipping plastics and on my jig skirts.

You know that Night Crawlers are not an abundant species in lakes; but it is like candy to all fresh water species when the lakes are high and they move into the shallow to find them.
