Hook Set

Dipping snuff and fishing

Recommended Posts

I've always enjoyed dipping when I fish, obviously we all know the stuff has an odor. I always try and wipe my hands before slipping a soft plastic on the hook.

I've read that nicotine have negative effects on bass. So, what do you think, is dipping costing me bites? Maybe I'm being a bit over cautious, but every bite counts on tournament day.

By the way, I always use Megastrike or JJ's.

Costing your bites or causing you bites?? I doubt it has much of an affect either way, especially if you're using scents. 

I once dropped a can of cherry Skoal from my treestand. It spilled all down the tree and landed on the ground. I had a doe come in right up to the tree and sniff the can!!  I'd tie a can over the side on your boat   ;D

Yep, meant to say "costing" me bites, fixed it.

Thanks for your reply.

I don't think dip would put bass off anymore than other things on the boat.  I keep a wet towl by my seat to wipe my hand on.  After a while it smells like garlic spray so, everything I touch probably smells like that.

some people rub their baits around in copenhagen because they think it is a fish attractant....so I'd say it doesn't matter too much.

I chew Cope, and the first thing I do when I get out to the lake is drop a pinch in the water.(its a superstition thing)  I have many times watched gills try to eat the stuff as it falls.  I wouldn't worry.

It's so odd how many people dip once you get out of New England. Out of all my friends, fishing buddies, club members, ect, I know one person who uses snuff regularly. If you go to a gas station up here they might sell 2 or 3 different brands and flavors.

It's available around here but I know very few people who use it. All of them are fisherman.

Can a day. Don't take any special precautions or use scent. Still catch a fish or two once in awhile.

I watched somebody spit dip on a bait and still catch fish.I'm pretty convinced once the bait hits the water it disperse 

I can't function without it either.

I always have one in also when I am fishing or hunting, I cant see it hurting anything....

I have tried Cope a couple times, but that stuff is so fine I just chase it all around my mouth the whole time I have it in, and always end up with half of what I had in when I was done...  Skoal works for me...

I gotta ask because it seems to happen in baseball, and a lot of them chew, or used to.

When you chaw, do you get a sudden urge to grab your crotch?

Enquiring minds want to know.

I don't think it has any effect on the scent of your bait, especially if you are using scent on top of it.  I chew mint Skoal

Thanks for the reply's my fellow dippers.

Maybe I'll quit one day, but until then, I can't imagine fishing without it, I've heard Heroin is easier to give up!

Make sure you have long cut Cope.  The fine cut is a mess.  I gave it up, but I did enjoy it out on the water.  The problem is it started every spring with a fishing trip and then next thing you know I'm going through a can every couple days.  I could normally get myself to quit by September/October.  Having a baby put things in perspective for me so I decided no mas.

Grizzly Fine Cut Natural for me.  I have one in always while fishing, pretty much always when not fishing as well.  I haven't noticed any effect on the fishing or anything like that.
