Growing up in Oregon and fishing for Salmonand & Steelhead since childhood. My brother still lives there and fishes out of his jet boat using frozen cut baits. He picked up from guides he has gone with the habit of putting on surgical gloves as soon as he starts to rig up his rods. Trying to eliminate any human scent at all that maybe passed to the bait. I have seen guys who smoke try to be carefull while touching there baits. I wonder if water temp or species makes a difference salmon / steelhead vs. walleye / bass. I am considering starting to use some scents on my baits but I can't get myself to break out the Dr. Jellyfinger gloves yet. Anyone have a strong opinon either way.
