Might sound crazy! But Gummy Worms from the Dollar store work great for almost all fresh water fish. I bought some just to see if they would work, after about 10 cast on a Texas rig a caught a smallie, then I caught 12 catfish at a pay lake and several bluegill with small pieces on a bobber. Don't be ashamed to try something new, I tell my son all the time, if it tastes good to you, fish will eat it. My grandpa fished with marshmallows, WD-40 sprayed on a worm and even life boy soap, some fish will eat almost anything. I'm using gummy bears this year for crappie, hope it works.

It might work for a fish or two over here, but our fish are too educated to be fooled by candy.  Very Happy

My sister caught a 4lb lmb at Dixon on a gummy bear about 28 years ago.
Since then it's been a tradition that every time we go there our children try it for at least a little while.
Gummy Skunky for the past 28 years. But WE Believe!

That is very true. Caught a channel cat when I was younger on a piece of gum, I think it was Sante Fe...

I spent all winter throwin' Kastmaster's on the river and spraying them with WD-40. I took the leap after hearing the "myth". A buddy (who knows his stuff) confirmed that it doesn't work, so then I felt stupid. Who knows though, maybe it does somewhere?

Or at least once, at some time.

The belief about WD-40 as a magical bait persists. It has long been thought that it contains fish oil, which it does not. Supposedly, this non-existent fish oil gives it near mythical fish attracting qualities...
However, you'll  look long and hard for evidence to support these fishy claims; I never found any. The parent company dispels the notion in all their copy, even sternly advising you NOT use it as a bait enhancer. But we keep on Believing.

This is proof that we prefer the lurid, inane lie to the mundane truth - something false prophets, politicians and other charlatans have capitalized on for eons.

As for what is actually in WD-40, here's the list:
Light machine oil
Mineral spirits
Chemical surfactants
Artificial fragrance

It was initially created as a corrosion preventive for missiles in the 1950's. The name derives from it's intent - Water Displacing compound, 40th attempt to get it right.

Since it is essentially a mildly toxic petro chemical compound, my suggestion is you follow it's maker's admonition and keep it AWAY from our waters - instead of hosing down lures and baits with it.

Indeed, you probably stand a better chance with gummy worms.

well put dayhut I think you are spot on with the WD-40 trick, as for the gummy worms I think I will try it. One dozen for my next try 6 for me and 6 for the fish, and if they don't bight I will.  salute

Hmmmmmm... What if you spray a gummy worm with WD-40?
Of course it has to be on a odd day of the week, never work on an even day.
