Recently, in conversations and on Internet forums, we are constantly confronted with questions about the use of attractants. And this is not surprising. Fisherman always tries to find an easy and effective way of attracting fish. It seems that here it is, a panacea, hiding in a variety of jars and cans. It is enough only to "smear" the bait with the tool and immediately everything will change. Fishing happiness will not keep you waiting.
And indeed, the prerequisites for this are - look at the fish of silicone baits. Euphoria from using "edible" soft baits does not pass. Now even beginners know that they need only such baits and nothing else. But any "ointment" can instantly turn any bait into incredibly attractive bait for fish.
Here and in advertising they say that the application of MegaStrike increases the number of bites of fish by 67 times. In addition, carp and other fishermen use complex chemistry in bait. Producers of baits all the time offer new tools. All this is very tempting, why not use technology?
Why is this necessary?
This is the main question, which should be answered before talking about attractants. In which cases is this appropriate? First, let's turn to some experience and advice from manufacturers. It's no secret that most of the novelties of the fishing industry are focused on catching bass. Including, and "edible" rubber came to us from there.
Some fishing techniques suggest a fairly long hold of the lure bass in the jaws during the bite, and "edible" rubber helps to increase this time. Do not let the bass immediately spit out the bait after the bite. Make him at least a little "chew" it. All this is necessary in order to make a reliable cut.
Addition to soft salt lures is the first thing that manufacturers started with. Attractants with complex odors and flavors became the second wave. And in parallel evolved attractants, the task of which was to make any bait attractive and add at least some instants to the time of bait holding bait.
With catching bass everything is clear, but what about the rest of the fish? For the rest of the fish, the attractant is also released, and of course, the features of other fish are taken into account. For example, in the north of America and in Europe you can meet a pike - and attractants for her catching.
What are they needed for? When fishing for plastic bait rather sluggish predators, this can add a few moments to the time of holding the bait fish. These moments in some cases can help us to do effective sweeping. It's hard for me to believe in this, because the pike does not have carp and does not eat with their actively developed taste receptors. But why not give the fish an extra chance?! In addition, when fishing for jig baits, UV additives in many attractants increase the "visibility" of baits in the water.
How it works?
The applied gel gives some glow in the ultraviolet spectrum, the bait becomes slightly more noticeable for fish, and deeper than two meters only they can be seen. The importance of this factor I can understand when fishing at great depths in the sea, where the ultraviolet penetrates deeper than the sun's rays.
What happens on fresh water bodies with their relatively small depths and pike - we do not know for certain. But to give fish a little more opportunities and make our bait more visible we can. This property is also relevant for fans of pike fishing on the jail. Lure is processed by special means, which add UV-visibilities. Often they also have some kind of smell, and they can also color the bait in different colors.
There are winter compounds, which also process winter ice lures. After all, there is not much light under the ice and making the bait more noticeable will not be superfluous.
With pike-perch, about the same story. Some montages, such as a drop-shot and a leash, suggest a "slow" sweep. The fish keeps the lure in the mouth for a while until the bite. In these cases, the attractant is designed to help the fisher to gain a few extra moments for cutting. And with a perch a similar situation.
Often he attacks the bait on a light jig and for a long time "holds" it in the mouth. In addition, with low fish activity, a properly selected attractant can help increase the number of bites when using different snap-ins. Even the wobblers, processed by these means, can provoke the fish to bite.
Many of us have noticed how a flock of perches is moving behind the wobblers. On a pause, they surround the bait, and the most determined grouper approaches, looking and as if "sniffing" the bait. Here in such cases it can become an additional stimulus to bite.
The same situation in ice fishing. At which UV-luminescence and taste-aromatic additives can make lure, nozzle or spoon-bait more attractive.
In European programs, you can also find attractants for catching catfish. This topic is developing rapidly. Here, I think, and do not need to explain anything. Fishing spinning using natural bait requires a long study of catfish bait.
Now for the fishing of coastal marine fish. But there is a niche for the use of attractants. These benthic predators, the same scorpion fish, which for a long time keeps the lure in its mouth.
What is the difference attractants?
They are so many, of these compounds. Different manufacturers, different tastes and smells...
Let's start with the fact that the cheapest formulations are made on the basis of chemically synthesized flavors. All we have met the inscription on the food "flavors, flavorings" products - it is about the same thing.
Lovers of peaceful fish catching know why liquid flavors can vary in price and effectiveness tenfold. Based on the composition of the oil and natural extracts and essences on the basis of the chemical - these are two "big differences".
The base compositions in nearly all one - is fish oil. Plus supplements - but for the quality of these additives, and we'll pay the money.
Clearly, not everyone produces an extract from herring or make extracts from leeches.
Many companies, for which it is only SKUs, order on the basis of large factories for the production of such attractants. Yes, there are. For example, the largest factory Pro-Cure. It is a great factory of attractants has been working for many years and is the industry leader.
It sells the compositions in the form of OEM for many companies, and manufactures its own. Therefore, it is a great chance to meet the basic components in any American attractants. The range is huge; there are formulations for a variety of conditions, see for you on their website «pro-cure.com».
The company collaborates with leading athletes; its logo can be found on t-shirts professional fishermen in America. And it allows her to cultivate, produce attractants for sea fishing is very popular all over the world. Make effective and pike mixes for North America, to produce "winter" options for lovers of underwater fishing.
I cannot imagine how you can fill in a huge live crawfish meat grinder and get an extract from them, but. These guys somehow manage to do it. Attractants tastefully cancer and garlic. Leeches and krill, herring and mackerel. Organic bases, drawing, oils, extracts.
Winter series attractants Pro-Cure
Winter is the time when the fish is passive and one more argument would be superfluous. At Pro-Cure has a special winter series, which are designed just for use with lures, balancers and winter spinners. Pike and perch - these are the two main fish, for which it may be true. During pauses in fish long enough time to react not only on the bait damped oscillations, but also its flavor. Winter attractants exist in version of "perch" in the version of "perch".
Their peculiarity is that they do not thicken in the cold and have a slightly lower concentration of active substances. In winter, the metabolism of the fish slowed and appetite is not as high, sharp, concentrated smell and taste can backfire. When fishing with lures and vertical rocker, the composition may be applied as bait for the rest, and on outboard tee, highlighting his detriment entire bait.
Composition «Panfish / Perch» handy jig lovers, it is made on the basis of extracts of crawfish and shrimp, quite universal in their appeal of prey. As with all compositions, it also contains a UV-component, quite sticky and not washed for a long time.
It is important to know that a drop of the attractant inflicted on smoker’s fingers, helps to hide the smell of nicotine - is always a positive effect on the fishing.
Trout paid ponds, landfills favorite urban anglers, require a special approach - trout attractant based on shrimp and young fish. Trout loves when her constantly surprise and change baits, and color, and taste. Jar trout Pro-Cure or eggs will help to make attractive and shrimp on the hook, highlighting its UV-composition and adding taste and smell.
