Do Fish Attractants Work?

Using Fish Attractants

By , About.com Guide

There has been a lot of controversy over "Fish Attractants" or otherwise known as "Fish Scents". In the past, I've noticed that many of my former bass angling students as well as by bass guide clients have always come prepared with plenty of "Fish Attractant", and wow! do they ever use it. They will grab that particular bait they are using, hold it over the boats edge, and really pour it on.

Is that method really practical? There are several different types of "Fish Attractants" on the market today in a multi-billion dollar industry where bass fishing is concerned, and the marketing is very costly!, and somewhere the companies have to sell, sell, sell, to make up for the high cost of marketing. Many commercials whether it be TV, Radio, Magazines, Outdoor Shows, etc. have to get the anglers to buy this stuff!

First of all let me explain the importance of "Fish Attractant". A freshwater black bass (Largemouth, Smallmouth, or Spotted) will usually spit out a bait within 2 or 3 seconds if the bass dosen't accept the taste (if it picks up the bait at all). On the other side of the coin, if a bass likes the scent or attractant, it can hold the bait up to as much as 30 seconds or more before it spits the bait out. Fish Attractant does not really "Attract" fish, but using it, your odds on setting the hook will be greater by using it rather than not.
