    Has anyone seen those little bass air freshners? I mean they look like a miniature gill or bass!!! Im thinking of gutting him with a slit and poking a big ol chicken liver in his stomach and putting a 4/0 circle thru his eyes and chunking him out in a deep ol hole and see what happens. Anyone have any ideas? This thing looks more realistic than any lure I have seen at cabelas or bass pro. My wife thinks Im crazy!!

    Ive got one thats a blue dolphin. Thinking if I add a couple treble hooks it would make for a cheap crank bait..??..:006:

    i am not going to say it wont work. there have been alot of things that shouldnt have worked but did. like ivory soap, tacos, beef jerky, bacon, etc. i will try anything once. i think that you may have better luck putting anchovies in it rather than chicken liver. just my personal opinion though. good luck.

    I have been to Bass Pros Shops once a few years back. I did remember all the crazy lures, jigs and baits. There is a Cabelas about two away but never been there. Well if it works send one my way......:roll_eyes:

    I will bet that if the air freshener stinks, it will catch a cat.:smile2:

    Sometimes fish will bite on anything. I have caught bass using a hook through a cigarette butt. I have caught catish on a variety of weird baits like bubble gum, hot dogs, fried chicken and other things. When I was a kid we would try anything if the fish were not biting.:eek:oooh:
