FoolaFish spray anybody used it?

Post by diceman »

I don't put much stock in magic sprays, or lures (or beans for that matter) having been stupid enough to buy berkley Gulp once with no results. Still I try to keep an open mind and have come across a product called foolafish on ebay and had a look on the internet about it. Anybody tried it yet if so with what results? Does it really FoolaFish or is it a case of more fool you?

For what its worth, you would be as well to buy a macky and rub your lure in it to get the oil on your lure. I once put a whole bottle of oil in the water and didnt attract diddly squat. Cheers..Mick

sounds like more of fool an angler,or that dreaded (dare i mention it?) WaterDisplacment after 39.

there are some oils on the market which i think are ok,peeler/squid/sardine etc.which are fine for rehydrating your salted lugs.

but no i havn't used this "foolafish" fish spray,and i think maybe most would steer far away,by all means these things have to be tried and tested,you never know oneday a miracle could occur

As Andy says some additives do enhance a bait. Perhaps its a concoction of several of the well known ones, (Sold at a higher price) of course.

having been a mainly coarse angler for many years and gone through the carp craze in the 70s/80s it comes down to what you are confident in using in the way you enhance your bait-dont just blindly follow the latest "fads",do a bit of experimenting till you get a result.I did a lot of trial and error before coming up with something I was happy to use,knowing also that it was that bit different to what others were using and that it woudnt last for ever anyway.At that point just a slight varying of the mix was usually enough to give a new lease of life.I dont know,but could the same principals work on sea baits? Be interested to hear what you think,tight lines for 2010-Mick

The thing i have against oils etc is the conditions under which they are used. usually when coarse fishing its still water, so i imagine the oil would stay on the lure or bait longer, and also stay in close proximity to the bait. But! in the sea the water is moving all the time, which makes me think the oil would be washed off within minutes if not seconds, and dispersed so much as to be ineffective as a means to attract fish to the vicinity of your bait. Lets face it, we change real bait every 20 mins or so because it becomes washed out, and lacking any scent. Just my 4pennorth. :D

Yep thats pretty much what I thought. The only claim that this stuff makes that seems interesting is that it isn't a scent or flavour based spray infact it puts no extra scent in the water at all. It claims to be some sort of UV spray that increases the visibility of the bait/lure in the water and allows the fish to see it from futher away. Still sounds bogus to me but who knows? I'm sure if it's any good people will post about it soon enough. Until then I think I'll keep my cadh in my wallet
