    I have heard that fish cant stand the smell of tobacco, i dont know...My grandpa use to spit on his bait..LOL..But I thinks its just a wifes tail..I dont think there is any "secret" bait, or enhancer to catch more fish.

    Bazil, Many years ago I saw a story on a local news program where they said that human saliva attracted catfish. I don't know if there's anything to the tobacco, which would be a lot stronger scent. I have to admit that I have spit on worms from time to time after seeing the news program. I don't know whether it helped or not.

    Thx guys... Well i might have to try and fill up an old mason jar w/ some berry blend skoal spit ( sounds kinda gross ) and throw in some guts w it... Maybe it'll work maybe not.......Trial and possible error right??

    back when i was a young boy,im 65,every body that was from the country spit on their bait.it didnt matter if you chewed or not it was the thang to do when fishing.i guess as we got more civilized we quit.dont know why we just did.

    Worked for me last time I was ice fishing for cats. Caught 2 after spitting some Copenhagen juice on my minnow.
    If they aren't biting you got nothing to loose.
    thanks
