Megastrike, giving me trouble

Recommended Posts

Ok so I bought a tube of this attractant hearing it works pretty good. A person told me to smear it all over the skirt of your buzzbait/spinnerbait and it suppose to leave a trail of the scent in the water and result in many more hits then a unscented buzz/spinnerbait. Now I tryed this and it stuck my skirt together so the skirt was all bunched up rather then moving freely and looking nicer. Also the bait seemed to collect more dirt and junk that seemed to stick to the bait due to the gel. Also the skirt of my bait is now brown due to the gel picking up the dirt. Has anyone had similiar results with this megastrike? Or is it just not ment to be put on skirts? Also im wondering wether or not I should try it on a senko, kinda makes me think the senko might collect the dirt and crap off the bottom with this gel on it.

I've been using it for about 7 or 8 years.  I don't apply it to spinnerbaits or Senkos.  Spinner baits usely draw a reaction strike so it's not needed and the Senko comes with a heavy dose of salt making MS unneeded.

I do rub it on my hard baits, jigs, and swimbaits.

Like the rest of the guys have said. I put MS in 90% of my soft plastics and in all my jig, this situation happened to me with some skirts materilas or when I didn't use the lure enough but I put in a glass with water and next day they were was just fine.

it says on the back of the tube to pull the skirt strands tight and let them snap back to place after you've applied megastrike. Apparently this is supposed to make the strands not stick together but I have never put it on a skirt so I couldn't tell you whether or not it actually works.

I use Megastrike on my spinnerbaits, Senkos, jigs

and every other bait in my boat.

In reference to the issue with the spinnerbaits, you

only need to put a little bit on your fingers and run

it through the skirt of the bait (same thing with jigs).

After you do that, pull on the ends of the skirt and it

will spring free and move as if it had nothing on it.

I think the main problem might be a result of you putting

just a little bit too much on the bait.

If you want to get it off of your spinnerbait (the one that

is stuck together) simply put the bait in some hot water. It

will only take a little while for the Megastrike to disolve. If you

use cold water it will take forever.
