#3561, "Pool testing lures.."



What are your guys thoughts on throwing lures in swimming pools and any effects chlorine might have on the lure or paint. What about the chlorine smell or even the effect on your line, any issues? Do you rinse them with freshwater afterwards?

I'm ecxited to be moving to house soon that will have a pool but I don't want it to end up having a negative effect on my fishing or lures.

my instincts tell me that chlorine will have a negative affect on your line and tackle. think about it, its a strong chemical that burns your eyes if you open them while swimming in a chlorinated pool.

i don't know the degree of its effects, but i suspect that largemouth bass, or any fish, could detect the chlorine through their sense of smell which would repel them from striking any lure.

with all that said, i think we still need some more specific information on chlorine's affects on line and tackle, such as how long they might last and if it can actually destroy monofilament and so on.
