I should clarify a few things here, the only reason I mentioned the Cap was because that is where a fisherman or two got tickets for using Jensen Eggs during a bait ban. I will be totally honest here I have not nor will I read the regs from cover to cover and was really surprised when I read about them being considered bait. Yes rules are rules and it doesn’t get any clearer when it is in black and white. I was mistaken when I made the comment they were made from rubber, I actually looked on the bottle and they are plastic according to the manufacturer. I fully support all efforts to conserve our fish stocks but I have lost count at the number of fish (salmon, steelhead ) I have caught on these things and have yet to see any of my fish hooked anywhere other than just inside the mouth and that goes for all the photos I see on this and several other forums. Now when push comes to shove all “synthetic” items emit an odour of some sort and depending on which day and who you ask could be considered a fish attractant. I can detect a slight odour from those pink worms we all like to fish should these be considered bait I don’t think so but that’s just my opinion. I just wanted to make a few points in my post and get some feed back from other anglers and point out a needless inconsistency in enforcement. I won’t be giving up fishing for golf any time soon and i can assure you I am not “Looking for a Loop Hole”.
