Tried and tested oils and how to use them.

Post  Andy Macfarlane on Thu Sep 25, 2008 11:58 pm

You should really try Kalium Aniseed oil on freshwater baits. Don't worry that you bait will smell like a sweet shop. The pike absolutely love this stuff. The Winterized salmon oil is very good also for freshwater baits, especially wee brown trout and the smelt oil is very good on any sea baits.
For the Aniseed oil, use about 1-2 mls per bait...that's all. It's very strong.
For the salmon and the smelt oil, use about 5mls per bait.
Just stab the baits in the flank a few times, insert the needle carefully into each cut and just push a little oil into them.

Tip!: Try buying a few large block-end feeders (2-3oz) and stuff them with cotton wool. Stick a syringe/needle full of oil into the feeder and soak the cotton wool. Just use the feeders as you normally would your weights for leger rigs etc. Every time you retrieve your bait, give your bait and the feeder a little top up. You won't need as much to refresh them. Just enough to liven them up is enough. When you're done with the feeder at the end of your day, slip it into a little grip-seal bag for your next session and recharge with oil before use again. After a few sessions, the feeder will become really sticky, jammy looking but most of all....SMELLY!! and believe me when I say, it really helps the pike locate your bait, especially in dirty water or during the night.

i do use it quite a bit, just wondered what everyones opinion of it was. I tend to draw all the blood out of the bottom of my dead bait bags at the end of a session, add it to the predator plus and keep it in my fishing fridge until next time. Seems to work ok.

I been thinking of going to the fish market and buying up any old bits of crap they got left. Take it home and blitz it through the liquidizer. (don't tell our lass though Twisted Evil ) Then pour it into 35mm film canisters or similar and freeze them.

When I go piking, take them with me and use them as 'groundbait' or put them into a large feeder. As they melt they will release the oils and blood into the water and hopefully attract Mr and Mrs Esox.

What's everybody's thoughts on this? Reckon it would work or not?

if you try freezing mashed up fish to through in, make sure you put a stone in the middle BEFORE you freeze it. if not when you through it in it will float!!!!. i did it once, spent hours blitzing fish, stuffing film cases, only to have them float away when i through them in. all the best guys THE MAD BAD (SOMETIMES DAFT) ANGLER lol! lol! lol!

Thank you!!
I thought it was just me. I tried this stuff extensively on several venues for the best part of a year and I swear it's like a pike repellent. I can't actually recall catching any pike (maybe one or two but nothing memorable) with it whatsoever but it's probably the best eel attractor ever made.
It pulls them in from all directions and it it wasn't a one off scenario. It happened everywhere I tried it (that had eels of course) and once they arrived, I couldn't get fishing for the blighters munching at my baits.
In the end, I threw it out in anger because it didn't do what I bought it for and at the time, I didn't really like eels. Now I wish I had kept it because I quite like the idea of catching some big eels now.

Good point madbad, ice actually is less dense than water. That's why icebergs are on the top of the water Rolling Eyes

Now why didn't I think of that before.

Oddly enough Van Den Eynde's Liquid Pellet is good for Pike because it's basically halibut oil.

Em...Anglers Rendezvous mate. That's where I always got it.

Surely Country Sports would order it in for you? That's where I go for all my tenchy pellets n stuff, so he's not beyond ordering unusual items.
