Sold on Liquid Mayhem

Recommended Posts

I've seen people talking about Liquid Mayhem a bit on here, and also came upon them on Instagram. I decided to buy a couple tubes and test it out today. First bass I caught with a sauced up sweet beaver was this 19" pig! Gotta say I'm sold on it. I love how it stays on the bait for over 30 or 40 casts unlike other spray type attractants I've used.

It's awesome stuff, watched my father in law go fish less while I was catching them in the north woods for an hour this summer till I convinced him to try some, five minutes later fish on.

I noticed they hit it a lot harder when I was using it. Unfortunately pike loved it too :unsure:

The scents I have tried... never seemed so 'magic'... I think most scents just make the target fish hold on longer, and mask your scent from rigging.. but honestly have no idea what the fish think. 

It's hard to accurately say that it was for sure the scent because of all the variables that come with fishing. Location of the bait is most key IMO. 

But if I was going to catch a bass like that Everytime I go,  I'd be glad to use some scent. 

Good luck and nice fish.

I bought a tube of Megastrike and came around to believing that it did help in getting bass to hold on to a plastic for at least a split second longer.  I fish lighter then usual tackle a lot of the time so every bit of extra hookset time helps.  I only really noticed an effect on soft or worn plastics, a half zlinker ned rig specifically is where I noticed the biggest difference.  Ribbed plastics as well, I firmly believe that a weightless 4" Keitech Impact covered in scent is the best numbers lure out there.

I did a little experiment once with Liquid Mayhem and panfish. I had a crappie slider rigged and tossed it over the side without moving it and watched gills come up and inspect it but not hit it. I then put the scent on and just let it sit and pretty much as soon as they saw it, smelled it the gills began to attack the bait. That changed my opinion on scents and I am guessing that the same behavior would be seen with megastrike.

I had always held the belief that scents gave me an extra bit to set the hook, this told me it could also trigger a strike. This also happened to be the trip where we had a triple cold front and July am temps in the 30s. I found that probably 90% of my softbait bass came when there was visible scent on the bait, it was really tough to get a bite with an unscented bait.

One thing that I have found is oily baits don't hold the gel scents as well as a drier plastic. That you are finding worn plastics hold it better makes me think that might be happening to you. When I get a batch of really oily plastics I rinse it off and let them dry and put them in a different bag or straight into a plano.

That might be true, I will give that a shot.  I keep a bunch of 3600 cases loaded with little "kits" I can garb and go, so like a senko kit, a shakyhead kit, etc.  I have started squirting a glob of MS onto the plastics in the trays.  Mostly to keep them from sticking but it seems to sink in after a while as well.  I might try adding it to them in the bags I keep in my stash.

I dont use liquid meyhem, but do carry Mega Strike for the last 2-3 years. I dont know for sure if this thing really work but it helps boost my confident.

Whether they hit harder or just hold on longer, therefore giving more time for a better hook set, is debatable I suppose. Either way I do think there is an advantage. I have never been impressed with spray attractants, but there's definitely something to the gel types that actually stick on and hold. It could make the difference between a bad day and a decent one.
