A New Kind of Attractant

Bass fishermen all seem to have an opinion on what scent is best for bass fishing.  Maybe you like a garlic scent like JJ's magic, a crawfish scent, or maybe it's a homemade mix.  Berkley has built an empire on the Power Bait scent and has the science to back it up.  All of those scents are fine and work, but they are also focused on one thing; the scent of prey. 

So when I first heard about Trigger X and their line of baits that are infused with Pheromones, I had to do my research.  Basically pheromones are a "secreted or excreted chemical factor that triggers a response".  All living things have them, and until now it hasn't hit mainstream in the bass fishing world.  Trigger X combines "aggression" and "fear", which mimic the natural predator vs. prey response.  Sounds interesting, huh?

In addition to the added attraction of the baits, the full line-up of plastics is also Phthalate free.  Again, I had to do my research to see what the heck they were talking about.  Basically this has to do with the type of plastic.  Phtalates have been found to have some health effects.  This isn't the only reason I would buy these baits, but it can't hurt.  You can see more about the problems with phtalates by clicking here.

The baits themselves come in all of your favorite styles; worms, tubes, frogs, creatures, lizards and more.  The color selection is also pretty good and covers all of the favorites you need.  I haven't had a chance to use these yet, but they are on my list of things to try for the new year.  You can learn more about them by checking out their site
