I picked up some herring scented smelly jelly yesterday, just one little bottle to try it out. I can't try it out until this weekend so im wondering if anybody else has used it and what their opinions of it are.

Edit: I went for the paste rather than the oils/gels.

I've used it. Worked. Caught 2 chinook with hoochie and herring chunk on hook. I'd probably say that the paste doesn't let go of a lot of scent, but when the fish gets close it may help it to commit to biting.

The paste works better for putting it on baits, and lures. I prefer to use the oils for yarns or if I'm making my own little mad scientist blend of smell. I've seen great successes with the pastes for a lot of different kinds of fish. It's not going to be the end all product that guarantees that you'll catch fish, but every little bit helps.

I always mix herring gel and shrimp oil together for trout trolling. I smear it on my ford fenders and worms. sometimes i smear it on a spoon or spinner for casting. i think it might help draw them in a bit but does make em hit more often then turning away. the gel oil mixs helps keep the sent on longer than just an oil. I always use shrimp oild when plunking fpr winters. and recently i have been smearing the mix on rubber gloves for handling herring and smeering it on flashers line swivels wieght t hide my man scent from the fish. you can't go wrong by adding scent. Oh peepeeing in the water atracts trout when trolling trust me.

My buddy told me that one time out fishing. Since then i have told people that every time i do it. At hills creek this summer i told my buddy that while we were trolling and the exact second the stream touched the water my pole went off. Had a nice 15" land locked chinook on the other end.
