WD40

Post by Mowjo »

Being new to Sea fishing I've been looking on the net for info and came across this, I checked the date and it wasn't posted on April the 1st, I know WD40 is good but for catching fish????? be warned there's a bit of swearing in the comments,,

Regards Frank,,,

apparently the main constituent part of wd40 is fish oil. it is believed that the scent given off by the oil can attract fish, an can therefore be used as an additional attractant........ how much of this is true, made up or hearsay?.i dont know... (and dont want to start a whole new argument)...

at the end of the day, nothing has ever been proven and if you are using decent bait then there shouldnt really be any need for artificial enhancements anyway.....

btw....this is intended to inform, not restart the debate/argument

As Victor Meldrew would say "I don't Believe it" Once again rocket fuel has raised it's ugly head I wish the makers would shove it where the sun don't shine and put it to it's original use Rocket fuel!

not sure if anybody actually saw the you tube vid that frank posted but theres a part where the guy on the stern preps a whole mackeral flapper then pulls up a tub gurnard (although we dont know how long he waited for that fish)

the whole thing seemed like marketing advert to dupe anglers into buying the wicked spray,maybe sales have gone down lol

you can all shout your opinions.... but the proof is in trying it out.
If you have tried it and it didn't work then fair enough, say so.
WD40 acts as a dispersant, allows the oil in the bait to form an emulsion in water and so disperse; that could be the reason for it working..... there is no attractant in the WD40, it merely releases the natural attractant in the bait you are using.
My brother and I have tried it and can say with certainty that it increases catch rates of conger from Watchet Harbour wall.... not an opinion, an observation of events. Whether you want to increase catch rates of conger is another debate.

There is no fish oil in WD40.... neither has it been used to fuel rockets.
