Fish Lure Enhancer
According to product literature from Lunkerhunt, Spicy Bites scent capsules are made for anglers looking for a long-lasting attractant to enhance their tubes or lures.
The capsules are made with the company’s garlic and salt formula, which reportedly entices fish to bite and hang on. Spicy Bites capsules last from five to 15 minutes depending on retrieval speed, water temperature, and the number of punctures made to the capsule to release the scent. The capsules also can be used to rejuvenate previously used artificial baits.
A 50-capsule bottle of Spicy Bites has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $7.99.
