Thanks for your report. Glad to hear eucumbene is firing still. The WD 40 is very hard to believe but I may try it in Jindabyne next month.

Gday Adznapper good to hear a freshwater report. I am thinking along the lines of dassazzj6 that WD-40 would not be the best for the environment. I think that lots of other things that slowly disperse and leave a trail of scent to a bait would also work, e.g. olive oil spray, and why not try stimulate ultrabite slow release spray. Cheers and good fishing Dave

I remember as a young bloke my old man used to give me a hell of a time if I put anything 'unnatural' anywhere near the bait or lure box! (Sunscreen,WD 40) :mad3:

The same bloke is now a strong advocate of WD 40 sprayed on his lures to entice Mr Murray Cod. He and my brother are catching good cod with mundane frequency and attribute this success to WD 40. (The fact that they spend more time 'on' the water than they do 'off' probably has a significant effect also :1prop: )

Water Displacement #40.

The product began from a search for a rust preventative solvent and


To protect missile parts. WD-40 was created in 1953 by three

technicians at the San Diego Rocket Chemical Company. Its name comes from the project that was to Find a "water displacement" compound. They were successful with the fortieth formulation, thus WD-40.

the moisture and allow the car to start.
