Don't waste your money at all. Look around for a water based scent that will mask human odors. It wont last as long but it will actually be effective.

    Hope this helps.
    Thumbs up for this post. Another thing about this crap, don't get it on your expensive sunglasses, it's nearly impossible to get it off of them. I've tried several different scents and have noticed no difference at all. It won't get you more bites but if it's water based the fish MIGHT hold on to it a split second longer. In that case, one should look into learning to pull the trigger a little quicker...

    Thanks for all of the input guys. I'm very familiar with the not leaving any human scent on anything and the garlic Smelly Jelly has worked well to the point of not one single skunk for the last 3-4 years on the boat (me and my buddy). Always at least a fish or two, to complete no bite skunks three trips in a row (5 out of 7 trips for my buddy) while other boats with the same setups are getting fish. I have to believe it's the Procure grease paste glue crap. It is impossible to get it off once it's on as well.
    I'll be switching it back (Smelly Jelly)next trip and let everyone know if there's a difference.

    I usually have to get the stripper smell off me, not the other way around.

    The gentlemen was referring to Bass. But hey, what would I know.

    Looks like reading comprehension is not your strong suit.

    I'll have to give it a try, sounds good.

    I know it's an old post, but for me when I'm fishing plastics for bass from shore, I rub the worm, Senko, Brush Hog, Ika or whatever with shoreline mud. Really rub it into the bait. Then fish with it. I really think this helps to erase the human scent from the soft plastic and adds a natural earthy scent. Had a guide show us this years ago and it really seems to help get more bites.

    I like that idea, except going to the shore with the boat to rub it in mud isn't an option. I guess you could scoop some before launching into a container.
