    Never used any of the sprays made by GULP but i've used their chicken liver bait. It got a few bites nothing big.

    never tried it, I use powerbait for trout, not impressed, but I put some crap on cut bait sometimes and get a bite quicker.

    never tried it before. i have never had any luck on anything artificial...just the normal bait fish with its own natural oils.

    Give Team Catfish Dead Red Blood Spray a try. You will be surprised at the results.

    I tried it, but I was experimenting with all sorts of baits. I used chicken hearts for channels; tried spraying them with earthworm, shad, and crawdad. And nothing. It was just a wast of time and money, because each one of them little spray bottles are about 10 bucks!

    Not knocking gulp or any of the other same products, and well i can't say that i ever used any, so just in my opinion i would think there just promotional products to waste your time and money on, if you have enough frest bloody bait there would be absolute no reason for any such thing, sometimes the bites stop or slow, then you have to move or try diffrent presentations

    If you're using live or cut bait, its hard to beat that natural fish smell.

    100% of all my best fish have ALL been caught on fresh caught shad, skipjack, carp, drum or some other fish from the body of water I am fishing with no additives. I don't get how this stuff wouldn't wash off within 10 seconds of hitting the water. At least in a river I would expect all the additive to be long gone before your bait even hits its resting place. Maybe in a lake where you are fishing in a few feet of water it would work ok.

    I think anything you can afford to do to help entice a bite is good...

    I remember a guy telling me about putting catfish attractant in stink bait a few years ago when I was at a catfish gathering. A few days later I was sitting in the anchored boat fishing a wing dam. I had been out hafl the day with nothing to show for it. I decided to mix a little attractant into the stink I had been using, and with in a few minutes I started catching eaters. I been mixing attractant with the stink ever since.

    I have never tried it with cut or live bait but it sure seems to work with stink baits.

    I've tried Yum/Garlic flavored spray. It leaves a oily residue in the water. I have only been fishing in lakes so, it may do differently in faster moving water. That being said, it did attract bluegills. I caught a couple of eater sized cats with the spray on nightcrawlers.

    Tried the commercial stuff few times and didn't really notice much difference on cut bait. What I have tried that works well is to take a pound of chicken livers and put them in the blender and blend until they are a thin liquid and then just dip my cut bait in it to freshen it up. That seems to work pretty good makes a nice blood slick for them to follow to the bait.

    Ive had good results with Bang,Garlic spray, been using it for about a year now,,, but some days it helps, others no differance, and some days they like it without,, you just got to try,, my way of thinking is anything that adds scent to the water has got to help...:wink:
    Scent, is a cats #1 cence..:big_smile:

    the blended up chicken livers sounds like the best idea then any of that other crap, plus what's chicken livers cost a doller, thats the route i would try to take first

    Last March, April, and May I fished below a dam at least 3-4 times a week. I was using plastic curlytail grubs, various sizes from 1-1/2" to 3". Some days I was using tanning lotion and bug repellent. I bought a bottle of Berkley Powerbait Crappie Attractant to cover up the smell of the tan oil and and bug spray on the lures. I caught tons of yellow bass, white bass, and maybe 5, 6, or 7 crappie most every time I went. At least once or twice a day I'd catch a small channel on these scented baits. I also had some Baitmate spray. It would leave an oil track in the water and I caught small cats on this stuff, too. I really can't say if these attractants drew the cats to hit.

    I wouldn't advise anyone to spray a nightcrawler, shad minnow, cut bait, chub, sucker or any natural bait with an attractant. The catfish probably prefer the natural scents. I'm no expert on the matter, but as I said earlier, the only time I use any type of attractant is when I'm using tanning lotion or bug repellent.
