Myth: WD-40 contains fish oil. Fact:
Consumers have told us over the years that they have caught some of the biggest fish ever after protecting their fish hooks and lures with WD-40. We believe this legend came from folks assuming that the product must contain fish oil since it appears to attract fish. Sorry Charlie®, it just aint so.
WD-40 Company has taken steps to respect and conserve the environment, and encourages its users to do the same. While WD-40 can be used to help protect fishing equipment from rust and corrosion, WD-40 Company does not recommend using WD-40 to attract fish.
Back when we was catching Crappie I bought a bunch of plastic Crappie jigs and they had some kind of oil on them that smelled like WD-40. I asked the bait shop owner about it and he said they came from the supplier like that.
It says petroleum product on the can. Its a water displacement item, used for cleaning and rust prevention. I don't know if its legal, it might work, but probably just another rumor. No need to polute lakes and rivers, they got enough crap in em now. Who wants to eat a fish thats full of contaminants. A few years from now it will catch up to ya, and be too late then.
