Spit

Recommended Posts

If you missed it, In the new Field and Stream issue, there's a tip that says spitting on your lure will cover up any bad scents and may actually be an attractant for bass.  What's everyones thoughts on that?

I read that same article, but haven't tried it. I looked on the internet to see if anyone else was saying the same thing, but couldn't find anything.

(Mostly just Spit'n'Image lures :)

I would think it works or at least, as the article said, to help offput other odors from your hands touching it.

My best guess is that spit, being an alkaline liquid, will neutralize some of the off-putting amino acids present in your finger residue.  I haven't seen the article, but this makes sense from a scientific standpoint.

Ok, we have some mixed thoughts now,  I'm not so confident about it either so how about one of you tries it and then lets me know.  I'm too scared a little spit my ruin my day of fishing :'(

it is nonsense...now that I think about it why not just spray a scent on...im sure if you were eatin some Salt and Vinigar chips that it would ruin my day...but now eatin some italian food might do the trick lol

:o

I've tried it but will never do it again.

When I popped the crankbait into my mouth to get 'er all spitted up, I sank the trebles through my tounge.

I don't know if it was the spit or the bits of tounge flesh hanging from it....... but that sucker did catch fish.
