Default What oil base in scents?

Anyone know what the oil base they use in scents? Ive been wanting to make my own scents. Id like to take a crawdad and a sucker and grind them up in a food processor. But im not sure what oil to use for a base?


Any ideas or input?

Hmmmmmm .... Quaker State 10W - 30 I'd say

I thought that when plastic worms and the like are made that the scent is impregnated into / mixed with the worms' rubber mixture .

Maybe get a few shiners / crawfish and mash them up , put them in a jar with a bunch of plastic tube jigs , stick it in the fridge and shake em up and turn over every few weeks and try em out when the spring rolls around . Maybe get a sucker , cut it up to bait sizes and put the tube jigs in with it in a Vacuum sealed bag / ziplock and keep it in the fridge until spring.

And put a little behind your ears and all the cats will be following you home.

Thats funny you say that; Every night before bed when I take my pills, One of them being Omega-3 I always think to myself I should take one with me fishing, break it open and put it on my lure.

not only an oils, i would also try fats and greases, pork fats, and lards, then favor them with your secert fish flavor, drian through a fine screen, let them turn back into a soild, use the lard or fat as your scent, maybe even filling to tube jig cavity with your lard, it would also change your shink rate of the tube jib, maybe making it look a little alive!!!!

i take codliver oil capsuls every day and sometimes get a fishoil burp, have thought many a time about putting some on a lure or bait. also reminds me i like unagi


although, like was mentioned in the link above. oils dont mix well with water. might do better with a water based concentrate. you could do like a fish stock and reduce it down to syrup or thicker and use that might disperse better in the water. you could grind your crawdad and sucker in the food prcessor add a couple cups water and simmer overnight then reduce

dude thats blasphemy, pork fat and lard are way to good to waste on fish attractants. save them for cooking! pork fat rules, everything is better with bacon

I've heard of people doing that, with no improvement in catch rate.

Try wd40 in a bulk gallon can. Expensive ($40 I think), but you'll have wd40 for the rest of your life.

Barlow's sells scented oil for plastic but the scents are a bit different than what you're looking for....

http://www.barlowstackle.com/acb/sho...1968&CATID=112

Zeiner's has some as well (including cod liver)....

http://www.zeiners.com/mfwormoil.html

Lure Craft has a non-scented version and warns that using mineral oil will cause the plastics to bleed colors....

Good luck!
