    Got these 21 with my son Thursday at a lake in fishersville Ky ,Some of them are in the pan already.. Caught them on filleted chicken strips soaked in Stetson,:crazy:,thats right stetson cologne:smile2:,suspended at 8',My son talked me into it saying they would tear it up,and bro, they did.:smile2: these went from 1 1/2 -4# I think, just a guess..He said a friend told him to use his wifes perfume,but I went with the mans stuff, no offence because he said the perfume worked:smile2::smile2::smile2:

    Well, I guess if WD-40 works, cologne would too! That is pretty strange:eek:oooh:, but I am behind this year and think I will try it. Not many but they have been decent size this year. This weekend should be good. I think I will try your idea. Thanks

    I tell ya I will be taking it with me from now on.:smile2::smile2:
    I have 2 breasts cut up in a bag in the freezer now ,waiting for the next time out.


    Heres what I done ,I layed a breast skin side down and filleted the top half off, leaving about a 1/2"-3/4" thick piece,and then sliced length-wise into 1/2" strips, then cut cross-wise into 3/4-1" chunks,(That leaves the skin on so you can run your hook thru it and back thru it again, to keep it on the hook) Put into zip lock bag and added about 3-4 tablespoons of the stetson and mixed well and put it up for the next trip...

    Good Luck Guys ,,If them cats are there ,,they will hit this stuff for sure,,Let me know when you fill the baskets Bros.:smile2::smile2::wink:

    Took a cut up fryer chicken with me the other night. Didnt use the perfume though and never got a bite so it must be the perfume that does the trick, I will be trying this next trip out

    Be sure to use Men's cologne, rather than the women's perfume your buddy originally told you to use. I'd hate to tell the ole lady I was out fishing and come home smelling like women's perfume.
