I would like to know everyones feedback on this before I buy one; they’re 33 bucks $41.96 with shipping... I found this artical when I was checking out the new chinese super bus on Gizmag

they also had a link where you can buy one

Here is the artical I cut and pasted for convienence, any input you guys have i would love to hear.

Fishing should be an enjoyable and relaxing recreational activity but a fishing trip sometimes amounts to nothing more than a tale about “the one that got away”. Whilst fishing can be frustrating at times, is it fair game to utilize scientific technology to guarantee you not only attract fish to your line, you also get them to take the bait? The BioPulse lure system by Mystic Tackleworks was developed by John Caprio from Louisiana State University (LSU) and uses the fish's biology to make sure your fishing trip is a success – good news for you, not so for the fish.

An expert in fish taste and smell systems, Caprio has spent most of the last 30 years, researching the chemosensory systems of a variety of fresh and saltwater fish. He discovered the specific natural stimuli that cause the activation of fish taste sensors which causes the fish’s nerve reflexes to ingest food or - in the case of BioPulse – a fishing lure.

Caprio said, "If you look at how chemosensory input occurs in both our brain and that of a fish, you'll see that smell input is to forebrain whereas taste input is to the back, the highly reflexive part of the brain. The take home message from this is simple: fish learn and associate particular scents as food, but taste is an actual reflex for them. The taste of particular natural chemicals triggers a feeding response." What does that mean for the fish? It can’t control the urge to feed and therefore will take the lure. Sounds kind of cruel, doesn’t it?

Mystic Tackleworks, a fishing lure company licensed Caprio’s technology and along with other fish sensory specialists developed the Biopulse Lure System.

Caprio commented, "Because Mystic Tackleworks consulted me, along with Dr. Richard Fay, a leading expert in fish hearing, and Dr. Craig Hawryshyn, one of the world's top researchers in fish visual studies, we were able to look at this issue from a scientific position to develop a lure that would provide the appropriate natural stimuli to the various sensory systems (vision, hearing, taste, smell, mechanoreception) used by fish to locate prey and to also bite a lure."

The primary research animals used by Caprio at LSU are channel catfish, because they have a highly- sensitive taste system – in fact their whole body is covered in taste buds. Because they live in water that usually has little visibility, their taste and smell system is highly developed.

The BioPulse lure system reproduces prey-like motion and emits sophisticated sound frequencies that are similar to the sound and water vibrations of prey. It uses visible and specialized UV light wavelength based stimuli to attract the fish and releases feeding stimulant chemicals from its bite compression cavity, to encourage the fish to take the lure in its mouth.

The system uses an internal scent-disperser that release scent in measures doses and provides up to 45 minutes of fishing using one refill. It is made of bite and shock-resistant polymer and has an ambient light-sensing system that monitors the light in the water and can activate a series of LED lights to encourage more fish attacks.

Freshwater and saltwater kits are available from MysticTackleworks and cost USD33.96 which includes the lure, feeding stimulant, and a bottle of BioFlush anti-microbial cleaning solution.

I don’t know what you think, but there’s something about the BioPulse lure system that is not particularly sporting – I think I would be happier spinning a tale about the one that got away.

I think that a company like that should be OSTRACIZED from our society!

It makes me soooooooo mad that a company would make a lure so EFFECTIVE....sooooooooo DEADLY....that the poor fish do not stand a chance!

I will never buy one of those lures! I do NOT want to be GUILTY of taking unfair advantage of those huge bass, TRICKING them UNMERCIFULLY into striking the lure AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN until my boat is so crowded with fish flesh that bystanders GAWK at the sheer CARNAGE of my UNSPORTSMANLIKE ways!

Furthermore.....I think I will take this up with a Congressman....or even higher, maybe.....YEAH! I will take it to the head groundskeeper in our trailer park! That should fix those dastardly cowards for making such a fishing lure!

I'm all "trembly" now......just all.........trembly!

If a predatory fish can turn its nose up at a live shad, bream, etc sitting in front of it, then it will have no problems turning its nose up at this lure.

You can take a piece of chrome plated soft copper tubbing
flatten the back end vertically, put a flat piece of lead
in the front end and flatten it about 1 inch the other way
bend it down a little drill a hole in each end put a line
eye in the front end and a hook in the back end, Presto your
own design, I am sure that this lure would probabley be
outlawed in some states because it may be too effective at
catching fish and is cheap to build who knows you may make a
hugh profit by selling it for high dollar, with the right

I said it before and I will say it again:

The only place where more money will get you more fish is at the supermarket.
