Good bait and lure matched to the fishery may tempt fish to catch in the most difficult fisheries. However there are situations when only good dip , activator or attractor may tip the balance in favor of angler.
I am far from generalizing and attributing the additions and inoculants fantastic properties but with the full trust in their effectiveness I equip myself with the batch of attractors, activators and dips which are oriented on given fish species. Those inoculants let me for very quick change of the lure and bait properties and those changes do not cost me anything. Obviously it is cheaper to buy attractor which costs 5-6zł and thanks to that attractor change the smell and the taste of the lure and also emerge fish bigger appetite rather than buying the new portion of lure in amount of 4kg plus morsels of meat, ballasting substance, gluing etc. The attractor save time and the strength of angler; it is quicker to add the attractor and mix the lure again rather than mixing new portion of lure of different taste one more time.
The purpose of dip, activator and attractor.
The dip is for modifying the taste and the smell of the bait what can be done during fishing. Attractor is for the taste or smell change of the lasting effect lure. That was the first assumption of the originators of those inoculants. However today when we have the whole range of different inoculants they may be used alternatively. However it depends from the composition and structure of the inoculant and from the type of lure and bait as well. Simply speaking : it cannot be done automatically, it should be done consciously and selectively. When those preparations are competently used the chance for good catching rises. The effectiveness of those preparations increase the use of baits and inoculants which are from one producer.
Activator is modern type of attractor, it is the combination of flavor and smell with the effect of tasteless and odorless protein, so called enzymes. The activator increases the appetite , enhances the taste and smell of the lure because it can turn starch into simple sugar.
