    I started this thread to tease Cal a little, but, with the direction it's taken it is easy to see it's a HOT topic. Guess I better post some serious thoughts on the subject.

    Unless I have a hot tip on what is catching monster Kings, Trout or Kokes, I never duplicate baits. 2, 4, or 8 rods, not one duplicate bait. I may start out with one side of the boat using scent and the other clean. If I'm not getting strikes on unscented baits, then I'll scent everything. I'm kinda like Cal in that I have never run into a fishing situation where the clean side of the boat was catching and the scented side was not.
    Another thing I like to do is use only 1 or 2 scents. I can't imagine what it would smell like using 6 rods each with a different scent

    I've caught fish with scent and without. My experience is to just put one out with and one without. But this can lead you in the wrong direction. That is why I like to fish with a buddy who also has a two rod stamp. So that way you have two rods out with the same bait. One with scent and the other with out. Fish are complex creatures, and just like women, the little things go a long way! Location and presentation equal success! ATTENTION TO DETAIL!

    I'm going to have to agree with CC.

    There have admittedly been a few days on my boat where the guy using scent catches more fish.

    I am a very reserved scent user and catch alot of fish without it. I don't really want to support a company that sells over priced stinky stuff.... But I do have like 20 bottles of it on the boat.

    The theory of one side of the boat with scent and none on the other without sounds good on the surface but I don't know how many times I've used exactly the same thing on both sides of my boat and still caught more on one side (sometimes five to one). I'm not for or against using scent but the facts remain that, most of the time, luck is at least as big a factor as anything else.

    I often get myself in that position Rick. I'm starting to re-paint the picture of my misguided youth. Pretty sure I don't want to go there again. Too old, too frail and too smart to do it all over again.

    I guess I better give up my aspirations to be a comic.

    Hypothesis: All things being equal scented offerings catch more fish than unscented ones.

    All things are never equal. There is no real way to test the hypothesis so what ever floats your boat. I chose not to enrich Pro-Cure and them.
