I use scents for 2 purposes

1. cover up my own scent. *(as nice as it may be I don't think it helps attract fish)

2. When I am targeting fish that rely heavily on scent for finding food. *(like trout and catfish)

Berkely makes a decent trout attractor in a squeeze tube and in the past I have used other types of scents for bass and the such. *The problem is it came in a spray bottle and they *tend to leak and break open. *The downside was my care smelled for months the upside my lures and tackle were all prescented!

The expense...... I suppose they are worth it. *They cost less than one Rapala and I have tons of them that I have never caught anything on.

I really believe that scents work. I hardly use them now (except pre-scented artificialls). However, when it starts getting colder, and the fish are more sliggish, I'll get them out. There were quite a few times last winter, they helped out. I use Mike's and Nitro.

I have been using Mega Strike, I won it on another site. I do not think it attracts the fish so much as it increases the time the fish will keep it in its mouthbefore it realizes it is not something natural...

I think scents work. i use them mostly to cover up my own smell. I have used the berkely stuff for trout and walleye. Wierd how I only caught bass and sunfish on the walleye scent. Now I have started using smelly jelly and like it a lot. It sticks on to my bait really well even after several casts.
