You were'nt wrong asking but it sounds ethically wrong to use WD40. There are plently of other ways to introduce scent trails (Pilchard oil comes to mind).

Know that we all like a joke and a bit of banter but seriously W.d40 does work I just hope everyone takes the time to give it a go, I'm sure that the proof will be in the pudding ...............................YOU KNOW IT MAKES SENSE. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, open your minds to inovations,. it is the 21st Century after aaaaaallll.

So long as the thread stays in good banter I will leave it open. It wouldn't be fair of me to comment and then to lock it.
Cheers keith :D :D

all forums have those who 'just know' things and others who innovate, try new things, new venues and share their experiences.
it is up to other forum users to decide which information is most useful to them... opinion or experience.

cod liver oil is not a dispersant, neither is pilchard oil

and while I'm at it, a spray of WD40 will not be much of an environmental disaster if introduced to the sea..... it might help in most harbours to disperse the diesel slicks.

Dear oh dear oh dear! Oh well 'spose I might as well join in: Oil floats on water, light oil floats even better. Spray a bit of WD 40 on a puddle and will immediately "disperse" and float on top of the puddle. Try it if you don't believe me. It follows that any WD40 you may put on yer bait will immediately float on the surface of the sea and thus cannot attract any fish even if they did want to try consuming it which I very much doubt.
So why don't oily fish float?, well actually they do. Most of them are surface feeders and if dead do actually float.

Well firstly sorry for starting this thread, seems like it's been done before and caused a bit of a stir, when I first saw the video I thought it was some sort of joke, then I thought it was a WD40 pro-mo, I'm all for anything that helps me catch fish but WD40 seems wrong to me, anyway If this thread is going to start an argument between poeople I'd sooner it was deleted,,
Regards Frank,,,

No problem Frank my mate I would rather it run so others know that the subject has been debated. It will probably be a topic again in about 6 months as some of the new members joining will bring it up again lol. Might try a seven seas cod liver oil capsul on my hook next time lol. :D :D >:) >:) >:)
Cheers

when two people disagree it is called a debate, it's a system for getting to the truth of a matter, it becomes an argument when people forsake evidence and stick to opinion no matter what.
if you cast out an oily bait, a frozen sandeel for example, you will ( if you are observant ) spot a 'flat' area where the oil from the bait has risen and has 'calmed the water' by changing the surface tension on the sea surface. If you like to say that this oil in the water column does not attract fish then please do, but I think it does. I would be so bold as to say I know it does, that's why oily baits work.... and perhaps work better if a dispersant is added.

try it and see, all you have to lose is a few squirts of something most people have around.
