Here's an interesting read for those interested in new innovations in the fishing world:

"Fool-a-Fish is the brainchild of a Spokane physician named Milan Jeckle that's Dr. Jeckle to you who combined his love of chemistry and the outdoors into a new business. Fool-A-Fish is earning a growing reputation as anglers from Alaska to Florida enjoy success with the product.

"You catch three or four times more fish, and the biggest fish," Jeckle contended."

The entire article is in the link down below. Do you guys think this actually works?

Hey Eelmaster-can't you whip up something like this with titanium dioxide on the cheap?? Smile

Yeah, well, I have a 7 tons of TiO2 on the floor, as we speak. Will that do it? hehe The chalenge would be working up a binding agent that is both fast drying and not something nasty for the sea. I'm thinking something like a Gum acacia. It would eventually disolve but it would last long enough. Of course developing coatings is never that fast and simple, but it could be done. I would also play with mica platelets or a synthetic mica (potasium magnesium3 aluminum silicate?) coated in a TiO2 for better refraction.
If I had more time I'd work on it. But really, it sounds like a gimick to me.

Monte you rock. Smile

I'll test a bottle on the hair raisers I plan to throw. I'll also give it a shot on the RF later this July.

It does sound tempting for rockfish! If it does work out Grammar, I think a few twelve-packs of choice barley pop might help convince Monte Smile

I actually bought some last year and used it for salmon and ling cod fishing. As best I can tell it seemed to work. I would spray it on the anchovies we used on the party boats for salmon, and even on slow days I seemd to be hooking up. Granted it could all be just random luck.

I figure it doesn't hurt, and might have helped. I plan on trying it on the pier and surf when I fish. We'll see.
