I use the extract on Sand Shrimp for sturgeon all the time. To give you an idea "wannafish" how long the extract with alcohol lasts on a bait. Many times I have brought baits in after 20 to 30 minutes and the smell of anise was still there and very strong. So, I would have to say that NO the alcohol makes very little difference.wannafish said:Alcohol evaporates faster than oil. Would this make a difference since it is going in water?
Exactly! But that is a good thing Alcohol mixes with water oil don't the alcohol will help the anise spread out by mixing with the water.wannafish said:Alcohol evaporates faster than oil. Would this make a difference since it is going in water?
Anyone have any idea how well anise oil would work on Walleye? Or burbot?Netdab said:Probably the best all purpose scent around. I have found out tho that TOO much anise scent or using it straight turns off perch and crappy, but mixed with other scents works great.
