Has This Ever Happened To You?

Recommended Posts

Well I picked up a bag of Chompers Skirted Grubs at BPS today, and the label said they had a garlic scent to them. I thought "Well it can't be that bad" but boy was I wrong! I opened them in the car on the way home and I gagged because the smell was so incredibly bad! Stunk up the car. And when I brought them up to my room they stunk up the whole upstairs to the point where my parents made me throw them away. I wasted six dollars. Did I just get a bag that was over saturated with scent? Or have any of you guys had problems with Chompers over saturating their lures? Kinda makes me wonder why they put scent on the lures anyways, its not like the scent alone attracts the fish.

I haven't smelled the chompers but the Powerteam Texas Rig Jig is terrible smelling. I prefer a non-scented or coffee-scented bait.

Had a 100ct bag of some berkley powerworms, opened them, grabbed a few, and headed down the street to do some fishing. I forgot to close the bag and when I got back, whole upstairs stank like powerbait.

You can't beat the Chompers finesse worms for drop shotting. Just make sure you warn your buddy before opening the package. Powerful stuff! I don't think I've ever had any other bait with as strong a smell. And the smallies love 'em.

Not a big fan of the powerbait smell either.

Agreed on the coffee scent. Chompers is terrible, pretty much why i dont fish chompers. I dipped a few paddle tails in Spike It garlic scent the other day and hung them up to dry. Came home and went downstairs and the whole basement smelled like garlic. Ill never make that mistake again.

Chompers definitely reeks. Have also had success with their drop shot worms. Before I bought them, I remembered reading something about leaving the bag closed in the house and car, so I never made that mistake. The wife probably would of made me throw them out too tho. hah

They do stink, but they are fantastic baits. As already said, dig them out of the trash; keep them in the garage if possible.

They do stink pretty bad. Just double and triple bag them, but don't throw them away!!

If i had the choice between the garlic, powerbait, and coffee i would take the garlic all day. Powerbait makes me gag and dry heave and the coffee has a sickening sweet smell to me. The garlic is tolerable (hey, im Italian!). And there is an added bonus: Lets say you've got a tourney and you are launching at 6:30 and your real tired. One wiff of that garlic will wake you up guaranteed. Almost as good as smelling salt :eyebrows:

I'm thinking what did you expect? Chompers smell like garlic, they've always smelled like garlic. Doesn't it say on the packaging "garlic scented"? You shouldn't have thrown them away. Maybe keep them in the garage or something. I think Chompers are good baits.
