    I know they work for bait on my wife, lol. Along with some flowers and romantic dinner over looking the lake at sunset on a blanket with some Marvin Gaye playing in the back ground, but, that's not catfish.

    Tho keeping them lit would be a real problem, the problem of keeping them on the hook is easy. you would have to break the candle up into small pieces & put them into either a piece of cheesecloth or a nylon stocking & attach that to your hook like you would do with dough balls. The I guess you would need a wick for each one of them... LOL...hmmmm magnesium core I think.... Magnesium "burns" under water... LOL You wouldn't have a hard time finding a good sampling of candles! Just go to a dollar store! I think the ones they have are THE WORST I have ever smelled!

    This was not meant to be taken literally, if your going to go through all this trouble use ivory soap. It will work.

    Brother Robert;
    Well, yours is an idea that I don't remember ever hearing about! Stranger things have been tried, some worked some of the times, some didn't work at all, and none worked all of the time.
    My suggestion?
    Try it. I can't see any harm in trying. Who knows, it might just work!
    Try it out, let us know what happens. In times past, even in times "today", stranger things have been tried! Who knows what the next "wonder bait" will be?? :crazy:
    Robert, let me know if it works for ya as I have a few different scented candles myself!
    Who knows, those that make fun of ya, ... well you might be the one laughing, ... all the way to the BANK! :wink: :smile2:
    Cordially,
    Coyote1
