Thread: peppermint oil

  1. #1

    Default peppermint oil

    Just curious, I was told that peppemint oil worked great in shrimp pots because it put out a long sent trail. Sounds like it would work but also sounds pretty goofy to me. Any one have any input

    Just get a pail of Super Bait (shrimp crack) and be done with it.

    I heard of folks who have put it in their egg cure and herring brine.

    Of course they do the same with garlic, vanilla, and anise.

    What self-respecting salmon would have had occasion to eat ANYTHING in the natural world that smelled like even one of those scents?

    Good point, Doc!

    Like my Dad taught me many moons ago... Salmon LOVE Herring!

    Everyone is always looking for the extra edge, or secret scent. I think it's best to stick with the basics, and I agree plain old herring, super shrimp is a tough act to beat. However, I guess it never hurts to try new concoctions.

    ...Doesn't matter if it works. I can vouch for anise oil, but have no clue on peppermint.
