These scents definitely work! Went squiding yeasterday and there was like 10 people there already. about 10 squids were caught in total, and 6 of them was caught by 2 guys who were constantly spraying stuff on their jigs! I wanna give these spray a go too :woot:
Now i am looking for a cheaper source of sprays and yo-zuri jigs. Anyone know?

Yeh it is a muclse and spriands helper but they say theat it smells like wintergreen and the squid like it



Why would squids like the smell of wintergreen? I think people probably used it for its cloth-like texture. :) Heard that squids take cloth-wrapped style jigs more rapidly, because it's more "fish-feel" :lol

Try the new scented squid jig we just released on the market. Besides a long lasting inbuild scent these squid jigs have a soft silicon body and therefore a more reaslistic feel to them :)

Price: 1 for AUS$ 14.95 ~ US$ 12.00
2 for AUS$ 25.00 ~ US$ 20.00

Look for Kakyadaks on: www.profishional.com

Hello guys! I'm fishing squids in Greece the last few years... I have a question about the scents to attract squids... Can't we just rub a fish around the jig? Never tried it but I will... I mean after all is cheaper for sure! Thanx,Basilis

I wonder if something like Smelly Jelly in a Menhaden scent would work. Has anyone tried something like this?

If you have raw prawns remove the head & rub the jig with it.Tuna oil also works well,but unfortunately all these things tend to make the jig discolour easily when the squid spray ink on the jig.I have used both the egimax &glowmax scents and sometimes they work and other times they don't. I always start jigging with a clean jig and only add stuff if they won't take the jig.The biggest difference is if you find a rough surfaced jig (cloth like) attracts squid but they then retreat it is because they have touched it with a candle and are suspicious of the "feel".Using a smooth surfaced jig of a similar size will almost always result in a "take"

Hi,
I'm a newbie to squidding and this great site. I've experimented rubbing fishs and prawns and also the egimax scent on the jig,it does not really help me to improve my catchrate but it sure makes my Yamashitas smells "fishy" and slimy. Scent will get washed off in short time though so you have to spray often if you want to maintain the scent. Pricing is much better in Japan recently (~Y700-Y800 = A$8-9?). I'm guessing it's the jig itself that is the main factor here.

Guess anyone that visits japan can stock up on these scents and more. :P

Anyone tried the latest scents by Hayabusa ? It is like a white texta pen you rub the point on the jig.

i gave salonpas a shot a couple of times and it certainly did not hurt but i can't say if it helped.

i had a bit of trouble with it falling off the squid jig so i gave up :th

if anyone is interested, you can buy it in asian grocery stores. its a white tape inside the packet and it smells a bit like vics vapour rub.

Active Ingredients: (per 100cm2)
Methyl Salicylate: 132mg, -Menthol: 120mg
dl-Camphor: 26mgs, Tocopherol Acetate: 21mg

http://www.salonpas-...m/salonpas.html



I have heard that Salonpas is a great weapon for Squid Fishing. Just stick it on the Squid Jig body. Has anyone tried using it before ?

I have used the pens and think they do work well I also tried using the stimulate either the aerosol or the liquid and find this works just as well,dosnt seem to mark the jigs either.

scent works great, you can also buy a scent that helps jigs to glow.
i use my scent when water is abit murky and it works.......
most people get a fish scent i use a shrimp/prawn scent.

Hi,

I've done some reading and there are people out there who use Stimulate - bait spray. Apparently it works but I have not tried this personally. Cannot find the manufacturers website but you can pick it up at rays outdoors. Link - They also have yo zuri jigs for cheap, in size 2.5 (from the store I went to yesterday, Nunawading, VIC).
