why? its oil based, so it floats and evaporates. not anymore harm than a 2 cyle outboard

I don't use applied scents that often but I do, use scented baits quite a bit. It seems it varies from day to day and lake to lake what scent the fish like but it can't hurt and it mask the human scent. Fish tend to hold onto the scented lures longer.
I have had good luck using anise scent.

i have been known to use a WD40 soaked sponge for catfish..dont laugh it works well..also old fashioned ivory soap...try them one time when you have nothing esle better to do..i have had plenty of nights when the rod with the soap gets smoked much more then the rod with liver.

Never heard of the ivory soap thing until I moved here . I hear it a lot now .
How do you rig it and do you just use it for cats and bullheads ?
That I would like to try some time .

usually cut off a small square. about 1x1...tie it in a spawn bag...i know some people cut a whole chunk and just stick the hook thru it..ive tried but if it sits for to long it gets soggy and just falls off.

I like the Bang crayfish spray when I use soft plastic, I only bother with it in MURKY water though.

WD-40 is awesome stuff, I spray it down the throats of dead bluegills shiners etc. when fishing for catfish.

I tried the ivory soap trick once too, it worked, but not better then a dead shad.
