Recently I heard some of you guys talking in the Brown Trout forums about using scent, Pro-Cure to be exact, on the Walker River and the legality of using it on that body of water. My question is: Does anyone use scents when fishing for Striper? _________________ Rick Waller

As far as scents go, there is nothing to lose. They mask human scent and scent is one of the reactionary trigger's needed to make a fish strike. I don't striper fish but I'm sure they use the same senses that other fish do. A bottle cost $4 and last a long time. Pro Cure works great, I also use Gravy and Smelly Jelly. _________________

I dont use any scents at all but Probably wouldnt hurt huh. Lunker sauce in shad might be good. I dont really think the fatties come smell the plug first but Im definately not even close to any kind of expert on fishing. My image of a striper is them being all fat and seeing some nice trout and smashing it or them deciding to be vegitarian for the day. they are really hit and miss for the bigger ones. I have had a few big fish come up for the plug while I was casting and turn around right at the surface last second kind of deal, I dont know if they got spooked by seeing me or smelling me, or just get smart.
