Tip of the Day: Add Scent Cheap with Cod Liver Oil

Fish are visually attracted to flashy lures but also depend on their highly developed sense of taste to identify edible foods. If fish swirl at your lure but don’t bite, try dunking the lure in a container of cod liver oil (inexpensive, and available at pharmacies). The oil will make your lure seem “tasty” to the fish and, as it spreads through the water where you are casting, will attract hungry fish. — Jerome B. Robinson
