I’ve heard from numerous anglers that having a smoke before or during the baiting of a hook is a bad idea. They say the smell of tobacco and nicotine gets transferred to the bait, and the fish don’t like it! Is this really true? If so does it also hold true for things like the smell of soap and toothpaste on your hands? :?: :?: :?:

as to my experience yes for carp fishing just not only the smoke even the fluids from bare hands make a difference

Hi guys,

I use a stainless steel soap to remove odours when fishing. More info over here.

Maybe we should ground bait with tobacco!
Get the fish addicted and they'll swarm over everything you touch. :-)

It works even in your kitchen. After you have cut onions, fish, garlic or any other smelly thing just overturn your stainless stell vessal and rub your hands with it and the smells will vanish. The stainless steel is nothing else but stainless steel in the shape of a soap tablet.

Catch more fish. That is the best reason to stop smoking.

Do it people.

The clue is in the bit that says "In the absence of plausible chemical explanations of why this may work, or experiments using controls, it is unknown whether the stainless steel soap is actually effective. Stainless steel soaps are often advertised for use with water; so it is likely that sulfurous compounds either dissolve directly in the water or (less likely) are catalyzed by the steel, if indeed the odour removal is measurably greater with stainless steel than any other substance."

SSS doesn't work.

Hi,

I carry a mini plastic spray bottle, filled with vanilla essence.
I rub my hands with a bit of the vanilla, and mud (from the water body).
I do this, before handling any fishing gear.

I do this only for freshwater fishing.

Why give up simple pleasures?
Yup that SS lota really works. Wehrmacht not so good.

The less you handle the bait with your fingers, the more effective your bait will be.
Human hands have an amino acid that is an aversion scent to fish,
so the less of this you deposit on the bait through handling, the more effective your bait becomes.
There are small, syringe-like applicators that allow anglers to bait hooks without touching the bait at all
or you can use disposable sterile gloves (they're cheap). :roll: :roll:

I think the best solution is to take a handful of mud from the water's edge and rub your well with it. This takes off most smells. Do this especially after you smoke.

Even the atta or other bait should be kneaded with water from the fishing spot.

use mild soap when u bathe before/during an angling trip . no after shaves what to talk of tabacco.the fish can differentiate 1 part smell in 1 million . I touch my stick and crank baits when attaching them to the swivel and so before casting I beat water with them about 5-6 times before I begin to spin.
for earthworms and bread/atta bait i generally use swede gloves -the worms dont slip and ur hands also remain clean.The fish also is handled better.These gloves at some of the local exhibitions (made out of sandwiched leather pieces) cost just 25-50 bucks and can be discarded each time. Ofcourse if you have cheese sandwiches for lunch then I would like to actually have a touch of cheese/bread on the lure.For some reason carp family fish are fond of cheese and honey.Hope this helps...Cheers...Ham :D

very helpful tips ham, by the way you wrote

what about the saying to handle fish with bare and wet hands? this increases the chances of fish survival (of course if you are putting them back :wink: ).

90 % of the time I land my fish using a net . Since hands especially when wet seem to slip and fish invariably falls/ slaps around the uneven terrain on the ground ,and damage to the fish is there . I prefer to handle it with gloves so it slips less. I understand that I will be doing damage to its slime layer but that really builds quickly again . Thus the gloves . I have been using this lip grip this year .
I had bought a large landing net this year and the fish fits in with one sweep .I then prefer to leave the fish in it while I unhook it. Movement and damage is minimum in a net .
My keeping or releasing will to a very great extent depend on the extent of damage and generally I like to keep the male fish . Release will also depend on whether the water is heavily oxigenated/ has less oxygen .I will try and put my thoughts and experiences seperately when I post a new article on fish release and survival .Till then Cheers...Ham :D
