Wd-40 On Your Lures??!!??

Recommended Posts

Just read an article online that said you could use it on your lures as an attractant. Me, I'm not buying that one. What do you guys think? Just remember, "you can't put anything on the internet that isn't true"......lol

An uncle of mine saturates Mr Twister grub tails with wd-40 to catch walleye, and it works.

Not so sure of an attractant, but the oil slick would let you know where you have already fished. LOL

I wonder if you could use Megastrike for squeaky doors?

Go to the WD-40 web site and read their list of true and false statements about the water displacement solvent; the answer is false. Anglers also use WD-40 for a reel cleaner and lubricant and it's not a lubricant, it's a solvent and will help protect the metal surface from corrosion.

I've been hearing that for years, have no idea whether it's true or not.  I fish artificial lures without any enhancement.  I may as well use live or cut bait and get real smell.

Like WBD said, it's all false.

It is good for keeping water out of your distributor on your engine though since that's what WD40 stands for, Water Displacement-Formula 40.

I fish in smaller places that are dammed rivers that the streams are runoff from larger lakes here.  They were used for water power in the 1700 & 1800's.  The water power stuff is long gone.  But we have the rocky earth dam and drop offs.  My point is after a busy weekend on the lake with boats I see an oil mist on the top of the water from the two stroke boat engines.  My fishing buddy's thought it was me using my scents when their not there. My point is there is enough oil in the water already.  No flame intended.   We did purchase one of those briggs & Stratton 4 stroke outboards  were we rent boats we can use our own engine.  We love this engine and we putt around the lake enjoying the ride too.  No more oars for me.  I been caught in micro bursts with oars.

I have fished WD40 on lures many times fishin on Lake Ontario for Lakers, Browns and Salmon and there isn't a

charter boat up there that doesn't use it.   I have used it many times and it works for the salmonaids, but I don't for

bass.  For bass I believe the Anise, and Garlic flavors are better.
