  • I recently ordered bulk plastic crappie tubes that came dry and stuck together, so i gave them a short spray with vegetable oil

    I recently ordered bulk plastic crappie tubes that came dry and stuck together, so i gave them a short spray with vegetable oil to losen them up and keep them from drying. Do fish no like vegetable oil, did i just ruin them?

          Hey if it works good let me know. That might be a secret to great crappie fishing.

            they like it better than WD-40 or other spay oils that you could have used! Like Teufelhunden said keep us posted.

                  No, like CptBrad and T said the fish will like it. When you fish never use an oil like wd40 but anise or other cooking stuff works.

                      THANKs! but i've been using WD40 for ages on my fishing line, i highly recomend it, but i havent had any success with it as an attractant. And the vegetable oil worked great! I was catchin crappie all day off a concrete drain pipe in 5 ft of 37 degree water, it could be luck or i got a secret weapon on my hands.

                          Hey!

                          Good question about the vegatable oil and reaction of fish - I don't think there are any studies on this. But in my opinion, it's fine as long as you don't leave it on the baits too long, especially in a plastic bag or whatever the container. I think there may be something to oil "going rancid" - I'm not sure of the spelling on this - but I have heard that cooking oil can go bad and cause problems in humans - I would think fish would have the same reactions.

                          Kepp a couple in the oil and let us know how they're working next Spring!

                          Good fishin

                              Trump is so desperate to screw up the election that he is willing and able to damage the U.S. Postal Service by withholding necessary funding.
