Fish dont like smokers?

Recommended Posts

Some people tell me that fish dont like the smell of tobacco or nicatine (sp) I have never noticed a difference. My buddy spits his dip onto a new lure before he throws it out and i smoke while i fish. what do you all think?

Maybe people are just telling you this to get you to stop.  How many times do you hear or told that smoking is bad for you and yada yada yada.  Is that getting you to stop?  Now, somebody tells you that it will effect your fishing .............. now you are considering stopping (at least while your fishing). ;D  Just my $.02.  This isn't made to be mean, just an interesting observation.  Nothing can stand in the way of a man and his fish. ;D

I thought the title was a riot  ;D  I know they probably don't care much for my cajon cooker.  As far as cigarettes go they might not mind haveing one if they wern't what's on it.

Sometimes I wonder if all this talk of masking human scent on lures isn't a marketing scam to sell lure scent. The original Creme Worms had nothing but human scent and caught tons of fish so why not tobacco products on lures. Hey maybe the fish will get a nicatine addiction and then we can put chew on all our lures and catch more fish. "LOL"

Most herbivorous animals love tobacco try sticking a cigar (unlit) up in front of a horses nose. Bugs love it too. We used to spit tobacco juice on worms thinking it increased their catching ability. I wouldn't take up the habit because of that however. And I have seen bream attack chewing tobacco thrown in the water.

I've seen Bream attack normal everyday spit as far as that goes. Just imagine all the bad breath I wonder if Catfish will like it.

Catfish probably roll their own.  But I have seen them take gold hooks and tabacco juice too, but in all fairness they also took just the hooks.

this is kind of off topic, but here goes.

my dad said one time he was deer hunting on a ladder stand dipping snuff and spitting it under him.

he said a deer came up and stuck its head through the steps of his ladder, smelling the spit. i've never tried it though.

i smoke while i hunt, i smoke while i bow hunt and kill deer, it's all about the wind and not throwing them on the ground. i'd probably kill more deer if i didn't and i usually won't do it the first few times i hunt a spot.

I've heard that you should avoid applying sun-screen while fishing so I try to remember to put it on before I go, then wash my hands. Is this just a myth too?

i don't know about sun screen, most of it smells good and might actually work as an attractant. but i wouldn't count on it.

i don't use sun screen like i should. what i'm more worried about is insect repellant. when i use that, if i get it on my hands i wash my hands with a fish attractant to mask the smell. i don't think human scent or even cigarette smoke scent will stay on the bait longer than a cast or two, chemicals are a different story.

WOW ! didn't expect this post to get so many replies. I guess a lot of fisherman smoke. I have to pick up some cigars to keep those little bugs out of my face, great idea. I dont like to put any thing on my hands that smells, like bug spray or sun screen, so ill put on rubber gloves then put on sunscreen then take them off again and throw em away. Maybe im just weird ?

hers one for the sunscreen debate.  i apply it well in advance to actually fishing, then wash my hands afterwards.  sometimes i may be off and geta little too close to my mouth, it dosent taste all that great so i doubt if the fish like it either!  i may be wrong too!
