I'll never know if it was the tonic or the day, but pulled in a nice 18" smallmouth the first day I used the stuff with ease, and several smaller ones around 11-12". As others state, it doesn't attract fish to the lure, but they sure don't want to let go.

Ok here's what I have learned and what I know. This is not an attractant so to speak where it will draw in fish from all around. However, I have found that using Hog Tonic when the fish are acting a little finicky and don't really want to commit makes a huge diffrence. I use it in many diffrent applications. My favorites are finesse fishing. Wacky rig trick worms with Hog Tonic is deadly. I also use it on all the craw and grubs I fish. I believe the fish truely like the taste it puts on the baits and they hold onto the bait much longer which allows you to truely feel the bite that may be subtle at first. I also think it would work on any freshwater fish to include pike, waleye, and other northern fish I don't get to fish for. I will be honest with this review and say there are two downsides. It takes a lot to get the smell out of clothing if you get it on you but that's what makes it work. Also, don't get it on the sides of your boat because it is really tough to get off. I have a small thick towel on my boat that I use when I put it on. Just change out the 3 dollar towel every once in a while. To conclude, I love Hog Tonic and would buy it by the gallon if sold that way.

Kills the bass here in Minnesota, I'm hoping it will work for walleye to. This stuff is so strong, my rod tip actually stinks of it.

Started using this last year. Bought more bottles for this year. That says enough.

Just received my second bottle. This stuff works great. Got to be careful though, this stuff is potent. I like to squirt some in a baggy and dip my bait in it.

After getting a bottle for a friend of mine and left it in a bag with a shirt. This stuff is so damn strong that the smell went through the thin, plastic bag it was in and the ziplock bag. I took the shirt out a few weeks later and needless to say, this shirt was ruined. I've used it while fishing the Tickler and the Swinging Hammer, both times with success. You only have to use a little, and the scent stays forever.

This is by far..the strongest scent I have ever used. When the package arrived I could smell it through the box and plastic bags before I even opened the box. Then once I proceeded to open the box and sort through the soft plastics ( after I sprayed them down a bit more w the Hog Tonic, cause that's how I like it) I moved them into waterproof boxes. However, my entire house smelled like Hog Tonic for at least 2-3 days. I love it...my wife ..not so much. I highly recommend this, use it on your Power Team lures or soak your own plastics that don't have sent. Great price for the amount. Especially since you need very little. I also saved the plastic bags that I moved the soft plastics out of and had a little bit of this left over to marinade my other soft plastics. That's how Powerful this stuff is. Will be buying more in the future.

The first time you squirt a few drops of Hog Tonic, two things are going to happen. You're gonna gain friends and your gonna lose friends. The friends you're gonna lose will be the people standing closest to you because Hog Tonic stinks to high heaven. But on a good note, the friends you're gonna gain are the ones that breathe water, have big mouths, and just so happen to be the ones you wake up for at 4 am in the morning all pumped up to go catch.
*Note: Be forewarned that the people that do stick around you are only using you to get to your bottle of Hog Tonic! Once your bottle is empty, they will drop you like a bad habit! So what makes fish so crazy over Hog Tonic? It's funny, most people think it's all about the powerful smell. But the truth is, it's all about the aminos. Hog Tonic is a heavy dose of specific amino acids. No chemicals, no synthetics no byproducts, no artificial ingredients…just 100% pure natural aminos (that's right bassin' peeps, there's no BS in this bottle)! And being that fish need these aminos to survive and grow, they recognize it as soon as it enters their mouths. Their brain registers that it's real, and they don't want to let it go. So you can definitely bank on having more time to set the hook! Once you start fishing with Hog Tonic you'll never want to fish without it…you'll see. ;)
*Fact: Hog Tonic was not tested by a professor at a University on hungry bass in a giant tank under controlled conditions. Hog Tonic was tested and proven on real bass in pressured waters by real fishermen in everyday real life situations. The true results that matter!
Don't be stupid! Your aim is not is as good as you think it is! So if you hold your bait over the side of the boat and try to squirt it with Hog Tonic, the odds of you nailing it on the first one or two squirts is pretty slim! Instead, just open your bag of PTL plastics, shoot a few squirts inside and work it around the baits. This stuff is powerful peeps and it doesn't take much. Also, make sure that when you do squirt, the nozzle is facing towards the bag of baits and not you. Otherwise your wife might not let you back into the house when you return from fishing (been there, done that, got the T-Shirt).
Directions for use:
Shake gently then spray 3 to 4 shots of Hog Tonic® into your favorite bag of plastics prior to using. Re-apply if necessary or if you just like it extra stinky.
