3765, Scent applicators?
Posted by swimbait, Fri May-21-10 07:04 AM
Anyone have any good solutions for putting on liquid type scents without getting it everywhere? I have this recollection of some kind of shallow round cup with a lid that you could push open with your foot, kind of like a trash can. Inside was a sponge that held the scent. Is that something you can buy somewhere?

I've seen exactly what you're talking about. It was a featured product on a fishing show way back in the day. Seems like it was Hank Parker if I remember right. I did a search online and couldn't find anything like it.

Surprised there's nothing like that out there. It was definitely a good idea.

I rememeber that thing too! LOL How about you just spray the liquid scent on your bait down wind so it blows away from the boat? Or kneel down over the side of the boat and apply the scent that way? That's what I do. Guess it's not the most efficient way; but works. LOL

I think some scent companies need to work on the bottle designs more than anything. Some are pretty good, but others get messy no matter how careful you are. Sucks picking up a sticky bottle everytime you put scent on a bait. LOL:-)

I pretty much use either Hot Sauce or Smelly Jelly XXX Crawfish. When I get lazy or don't feel like touching the stuff (yeah I admitted it) I'll use the spray stuff.

You may want to get a bottle of Berkley Gulp Alive spray. Hold on for a second; just listen }( . That spray bottle is REALLY good and stays clean and you can close it so it doesn't spray. I have a different brand liquid scent in there now and it sprays great. Sprays away from the boat and doesn't get everywhere. If you can buy a bottle like that just by itself; that would be good too.

Rob -

I don't recall the applicator you described. However, here is a scent applicator/container that I stumbled upon in the 2011 Northern Bass Suplly catalog:

Here is the item on the Roger's Product website:
