Homemade Fish Attractant With Garlic

Although the process of making homemade fish attractant is a relatively easy one, you can easily tweak it in many different ways. Most fish attractants require an oil-based product such as olive oil, cod liver oil, anise oil or any other type of fish oil product, as well as something to soak up attractant mixture such as dry dog food or hot dog pieces. After you assemble the basic components, the process becomes a matter of trying different additives. Bass really seem to like garlic, along with other species of fish. Typically commercial fish attractants have some form of smelly additive such as garlic in them.

Skill level:Moderately Easy

Things you need

One package cheap hot dogsCheap dry dog food, preferably in large bitesAnise oilJaw of raw chopped garlicCod liver oilGarlic-infused olive oilFresh cloves of garlicContainer of plain sardines in oil or any container with plain fish oil

Instructions

1

Homemade Fish Attractant With Garlic

Chop hot dogs in chunks, approximately 3/4 inch thick---large enough that the chunk doesn't come off the hook easily after it soaks up the attractant mixture. If you use dry dog food, keep it in big bites; sometimes the dog food comes sized to large breeds which means larger bites.

2

Homemade Fish Attractant With Garlic

Mix the oil product in a container with the garlic additive; a mixture of anise oil and one jar of crushed garlic seems provides an effective scent combination. However, you may want to try several different combinations so you have many different attractants to choose from. Allow the attractant mixture to soak for a good amount of time, usually overnight works fine. The hot dogs will soak up the scent of the oil and garlic and will make your attractant a big hit with the fish.

Mix the ingredients well, and completely cover the hot dog chunks or dry dog food with the oil mixture. The chunks will swell when soaking up the attractant mixture.

When you place the chunk of hot dog on the hook, attach it firmly so it doesn't slip off; however, you do not have to attach any of the garlic bits on the hook. The oil will have soaked into the hot dog and infused it with the hearty, robust scent of garlic.

For an added effect, you may choose to throw some of the soaked dog food bites in the area you choose to fish, such as around the boat or in the water just upstream from the river bank. This practice may attract more fish to the general area you are fishing.

Tips and warnings

Have your fishing license on you whenever you're fishing; you can receive a fine even if you have just left it in your vehicle.

Bring proper containers for storing caught fish that you plan on keeping.

Practice proper catch-and-release techniques when the fish are too small to eat.
