Smelly Jelly - Deadly Effective

Fish Attractant That Works


Smelly Jelly Bass Feast PasteAnglers, I have got to let this out of the bag, seeing I have heard of this product Smelly Jelly, but have never tried it. Well, I can't say that anymore after my last trip to Pickwick Lake and all the Spotted Bass that I caught.

Almost all the fish came off of a Shaky Head Rig with Smelly Jelly on it. 

I was fishing with a guy named Jim that I met in Nashville, Tennessee while doing seminars at a Fishing Expo Show. If I remember, Jim sat through at least three of my seminars and would always have a ton of questions afterwards.

One of his questions was when could he meet me at Pickwick so I could show him the bass that the lake can offer.

After three years, we finally got a schedule that was going to work seeing I was going after Crappie I would take a break and take Jim bass fishing.

I was at Pickwick two days before Jim arrived looking for Crappie, and it was not paying off. The water was up at least ten feet and every day the wind was blowing
30 mph.

Jim arrived the afternoon of the second day and I explained that I had
 searched the lake all over for crappie and came up empty handed. We both decided to switch to bass fishing and would wait until the following morning.

We were on the water at daybreak in Bear Creek at East Port. I was throwing a spinner bait and Jim was throwing a Shaky Head worm. Needless to say Jim was cleaning my clock with the amount of bass he was catching.

It did not take me long to finally ask Jim what he was doing, and he showed me the set up.

Everyone that knows me can already guess, YES, I had some Shaky head rigs in my boat.

What Was Jim Doing Different Even Using The Same Bait Rig?

I started throwing the Shaky Head Rig, but it was not producing like Jim's Rig. I paid close attention to what he was doing and he would pull a small jar out of his pocket and smear something on his worm and then start catching Bass.

Jim said pass your worm back here and he smeared some Smelly Jelly on my worm, and let me tell you before the worm hit the bottom of the lake, a Spotted Bass jumped out of the water with my bait in his mouth. This was just many of the fish we caught that day.

The next day when we started fishing I wanted to know what had happened yesterday was not a fluke so I switched worms with a fresh one.

Again, Jim was smoking me on the amount of fish and every one of them would have made it to the scales at a tournament. The second he applied the Smelly Jelly to my worm again, I started tearing up the bass. 

When we returned to the cabin, I asked if I could see the containers that he had in his pocket and one was Craw fish with Garlic and the other was Shad with Garlic. I can
not stress to you how this magic attractant works but seeing is believing.

As you see they come in small squeeze bottles and jars that must be kept out of the sun and when not in use put them in the FRIG or Freezer.

How Much Smelly Jelly Do You Apply To The Worm?

It takes very little to coat not only just worms. You can apply it to any tackle that you are throwing, and will out last any other spray or dip it by 30 minutes. All you have to do is smear a little of the paste on two fingers then apply to your bait or use the liquid squeeze bottle.

For your convenience, use the text links here or the image links above to purchase one or more of the different Smelly Jelly scents available in liquid or paste form.

The cost average about $4.49 for the 4oz. "Sticky Liquid" bottles to $7.99 for a 4 oz. jar of "Pro Guide Formula" scented paste. Like I said earlier, if you keep them out of the sun and in a cool place, the fish attractant will last season after season.

Don't do like I did and wait forever to pick up a few jars or bottles. See if this does not improve the amount of fish that you catch, and like I always state in my articles; don't buy it until I try it.

Smelly Jelly gets my approval both hands down, and you will not see me on the water without a jar or two of Smelly Jelly.

Keep The Hooks Wet!
