April 19th was National Garlic Day. I think my family acknowledged that day with a pizza. But there are a lot of uses for garlic, even in fishing.
Garlic dip such as Spike It Garlic Lure Dye is touted to be an attracting lure for fish. Bassmaster Elite angler Stephen Browning shared that he and his son had a great time catching trout with garlic, but he also carries a selection in his bass boat.
And garlic isn’t the only kitchen ingredient to find its way into fishing lures. Berkley offers PowerBait Trout dip flavors of “Corn” or “Garlic Mint.” A package of Backwater Tackle soft plastic worms, scented with “crawfish, anise, and garlic oil,” arrived in a recent Mystery Tackle Box. Salt is impregnated in many soft plastic lure lines, including Netbait’s Salt Lick Worm. Strike King lures has a “Caffeine shad” which has coffee scent and salt. Their “Coffee Tube Softbaits” contain, “real coffee bean granules and coffee bean oil.” Even sugar has been added to a new line of soft plastics in the Field and Stream Sugar Stix soft baits.
What do you think the next flavored fishing lure will be? Chamomile? Saffron?
My money is on bacon.
