Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. I don't really notice a difference in catches or bites. The only scent I ever use is BANG Garlic.

I usually do. I just think of it as 1 more thing that could "tilt" the odds in my favor. I like coffee scent or garlic and sometimes a crawfish scent.

I have found that using garlic will up your catch #'s a bit but I've also found that the really bigger bass do not like any of the scents.

Donald Harper has some sort of witch's brew that is supposed to be really solid that he sells.

Over the years got away from it tried just about all of them and it seem like it didn't matter with or without.

There is no doubt in my mind that it sews up the deal on big fish. Try the Crayfish or Craylic with a living rubber skirt.

I do, I use Donald Harpers scents, all of them. On jigs and plastics they work great.

I like Coffee Scent. Even if it doesn't make them bite, if it masks my scent, it has done its job. I use it on jigs and most plastics other than Powerbait

A little piece of pipe cleaner wrapped around the hook will make it stay on too!

If I have it I will use it to spice up old wore out Jig trailers and other soft plastics. But for me its not one of those things that I just absolutely need. I really feel like if a bass is there, and she is ready to eat she will eat.

I keep Bang spray on mine at all times, and have seen the difference with me and my partner fishing the same jig mine had spray on it and his did not he did not get vary many bites until he sprayed his.

I do and while I don't think it triggers strikes a do think they will hold on to it just a little longer and that is worth it for me.
