Use Pro-Cure To Increase Your Striper Fishing Success !

Pro Cure for Stripers Striped Bass are very popular gamefish throughout the entire United States . Although these fish eat different baits in different geographic areas only Pro-Cure offers a huge selection of scent flavors to match what these fish are feeding on . The most popular Pro Cure flavors for stripers are Anchovy , Threadfin Shad , Sardine , Eel and Blood Worm . Pro-Cure offers three types of scents to address how you fish . Pro-Cure has Super Gels for all lures , plugs , spoons , spinners , poppers , hair jigs , lead head jigs , swim baits and soft plastics . Pro-Cure offers Bait Oils and Bait Sauces to inject into dead baits or to smear onto live baits . For anglers fishing dead baits they offer Brine n Bite bait brine , Bait Brite brightener , and both the powder and liquid Bad Azz Bait Dyes to color your baits with .
SUPER GELS Made from real whole fresh bait , Super Gel is the ideal scent for lures , plugs , jigs , spoons , soft plastics , swim baits and the large rainbow trout plugs or soft baits . Super charged with powerful amino acids and UV enhanced , this sticky gel matrix will stick to lures and plastics for many casts or long troll times . If you are getting boils and short strikes you need to add Super Gel to motivate those following fish to attack ! Savvy anglers know that adding Super Gel to your artificials will turn follows to hook ups .
BAIT OILS Pro-Cure oils are all made from real bait . Pro-Cure doesn ’ t use artificial scents . All Pro-Cure oils are UV enhanced Use to inject into rigged dead baits . Pro-Cure recommends mixing bait oils with Bait Sauce 50 / 50 for a more potent scent trail .
BAIT SAUCE A blend of real fish oils and whole ground up bait . Because the bait is water soluble we are able to infuse these bait blends with powerful amino acids that bring up the flavor of the bait and also trigger an impulse in a fish ’ s brain to feed . Blending Bait Sauce with bait oil is the most effective method of injecting rigged baits .
BRINING BAITS Salt brines toughen baits but only Brine n Bite bait brine infuses brined baits with amino acids that intensify the natural flavor of your baits and also trigger an impulse in a fish ’ s brain to feed . Adding a few drops of the Bait Brite bait brightener to your brine solution will put a tremendous shine on Threadfin Shad , shiners , anchovies , herring , etc .
Bad Azz fluorescent powdered dyes can be added to your brine solution to turn your shad and shiners the most intense fluorescent colors like electric chartreuse , metallic blue , hot pink , brilliant red , etc . Or you can spot dye individual baits using the Bad Azz Liquid Dyes . In California ’ s murky Delta waters , dying Threadfin Shad chartreuse has been really hot . It ’ s so bright you can see the flash of your rolling bait from 4 feet under .
BUCKTAIL JIGS / NYLON HAIR JIGS : Super Gel can be applied to the head of the jigs and at the base of the hair where it is tied to the jig head . NEVER put the Super gel or oils onto the hair as it will matt down the hair and not allow it to pulse or ‘ breathe ’ as the lure is retrieved .
