Zebco / Quantum Boost Ignitor Pellets Multi-Species Fishing

Recommended Posts

I was browsing ebay today and came across something I had never seen before:

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Zebco-Quantum-BPELMS-BX6-Boost-Ignitor-Pellets-Multi-Species-Fishing-/381102592754?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item58bb7c12f2

 

Zebco / Quantum BPELMS BX6 Boost Ignitor Pellets Multi-Species Fishing
 
"Throw out a few handfuls of Zebco Boost Ignitor Pellets into the area that you want to attract fish. This creates your own "hot zone". An exclusive formula developed by Purina that slowly disperses a natural attractant. Slow sinking pellets keep product suspended and in front of the fish longer while they dissolve or are eaten."
 
----------------------------------
 
Have any of you tried these pellets?
 
Now I am curious... and I might just try it out soon.

And that's why we call a guy using it "Chummy"

In all seriousness that video is particularly sporty, it made me almost do some chumming here in the comfort of my downstairs bathroom.

Yep, and I have seen people chumming mostly in the St. Johns river using either rabbit food, or even cat food and dog food from time to time, but I thought this stuff was suppose to be better, but after reviewing the promotional video for the product I am not so sure it is anything different than rabbit food. I might do some comparing this coming spring or summer.

 

One thing I noticed in the video was as Bill Dance was talking about the product he mentioned how the pellets had different rates of falling through the water to the bottom, and how some was suppose to suspend in the water and I was not seeing that. It looked like to me all of the pellets were dropping like rocks to the bottom.

 

But when they tossed the dock block solid version into the water, when it dispersed into the water it was in much smaller pieces and dispersed slower than the pellets seemed to disperse. And, when they tossed the dock block into that nice manicured oxygenated home made lake of theirs, when it hit bottom it was still visible. Here in Florida if I did that, that dock block would be buried in 3 or 4 feet of bottom vegetation.

 

So if I used the dock block I would probably carry a gallon milk jug with me and float/suspend the dock block a couple of feet just below the surface probably 20 to 30 feet away from me. I would not want it right under my boat. It would have to be a nice casting distance away from the boat.

 

And if I bought the pellets, I would probably crush a small amount into a near powder form rather than toss in pellets straight to the bottom. I would want more of the bait and attractants suspended in the water as a powder, but that might be difficult to throw far enough away from the boat.

 

I could use some sort of a fabric bag suspended a few feet under a float and put a handful of pellets in there or, even a small chunk of the dock block, and throw it out there casting distance away from the boat.

It's Purina, so its probably cat food. The problem is brim will become trained to eat that stuff...m

Most of the people I have seen throwing cat (or any other animal) food, in the St. John's or Oklawaha, are mullet fishing.

Very true. I left that part out so as to not single out one segment of our population who does that, and I sort of figured that regardless of why they were doing it, other species are also more than likely feeding on it too, and they could be creating a similar feeding frenzy by doing it, while still focusing their efforts on the mullet rather than the other fish. But I have seen them take bucket loads of tiny bream home they fry up like potato chips.

 

Regardless of the species they target, I am going to experiment and see if doing this will put more fish in the boat.

 

I want to try for stripers and sunshine bass too.

Why did I let you make me even consider watching a video on fish chum?  Well, I watched it -- some of it, anyway; as much as I could stand.

 

I don't even know what to say about it.  Sporty?  Sporty.

 

 

Tight lines,

Bob

Most Yankee states, chumming IS TOTALLY ILLEGAL.  Who obays any laws anymore ?

 

Raising feed plots of favorite deer or bear food is also illegal.  It is legally called " baiting ".

 

Funny how we have the guts to call either  "hunting "  or  " fishing ".
