    I have used hotdogs for bait, but never WD-40 on them. I have heard of this and have thought about spraying the hands with it to mask the odors from my smoking and butt scratching.:smile2:

    I have heard of using wd 40 but have never tried it. I think that using wd 40 might harm the waters eventually. It is petrolium based and has some other chemicals in it. Don't want to take a chance on further polluting up the waters than has already been done.

    I have to agree also I would wonder if the oil in the WD40 would ruin the catfish that was caught on it

    I know in Texas that they have outlawed using WD-40 because they say it will polute the water.

    Several years ago in Louisianna we used WD 40 on
    carolina rigged plastic worms.

    Hadn't thought of putting it on hot dogs....probably will work as well as garlic powder and red cool ade



    Regards

    I used it when I was young and caught a ton of fish, but I have to agree that its not good for the water and I wont use it anymore

    I would think that WD-40 would be bad for the environment. I have heard about guys using it to keep hooks from rusting.

    if you get online and check around for wd-40 and fishing you will get a few answers, some say its the best some say its the worst thing and it messes up the waters, i lean to the last two. heres another thing to in some states i dont know about GA but it is illegal to use wd-40 while fishing. one website i read and if i find it i'll put it on here states during a labratory test they used a couple of around the house chemicals to attract fish the one that came out first hands down was preperation-h. the reason behind this is because preperation-h has shark pheremones in it thus causing the fish to go crazy and get even more attracted to whatever is in the water. the stuff is non toxic and wont mess up the waters hell might even help out ol flattie down there with some butt cramps, but it does work, a friend of mine caught the daily limit in a little over 4 hours here at fort gordon using this along with chicken liver, he was fishing pretty much a stagnet pond, but it brought up the lunkers hope this helps ya out brother and if i'm wrong or right let me know

    i have tried this and it works . put raw peanuts in a container cover with hot water let stand a couple of days till it stinks like a wet hog pen . put out on a flat near a river channel or most anywhere you think channel cats hang out on a lake . they will come to the smell .i am trying to figure out where to put them in the river where the ware wan`t wash them away . maby just below a sand bar where the water swirls back into a Edie . what you AL think ?
    Flatheads don`t eat that but the channel cats love it
