They are one of the variables of fishing that is difficult to detect in a distant angler. Though you may see the technique, you won't always see what scent they're putting on it to entice that "extra" bite.
Certain fisheries demand more scent applications than others, but it's a known fact that having your scent game dialed in will allow favorable outcomes in many fishing situations.
Addicted Scents are blends designed to target salmon and steelhead species specifically. While we do believe they will work in other fisheries, we did not design them for that purpose. These blends are based on specific, time-tested factors that have increased success for us on a level significant enough, that we felt led to offer them in specialized blends.
The first "Addicted" blend released to anglers was the Steelhead Blend. From the very outset of the summer steelhead season it showed that Addicted Scents were being utilized hugely in a number of successful steelheader anglers and guides arsenals. We received so many successful texts and pictures, it was an exciting start to seeing our fellow anglers finding so much success with it.
Available now online and through dealers, this scent works for steelhead everywhere from the waters of California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, The Great Lakes and Canada where it's been tried by large numbers of passionate steelhead anglers.
"It's my go to steelhead scent everywhere I steelhead, East and West-side fish love it." TJ Hester, Fishing Guide Eastern Washington.
Winter Chrome Blend
Brand-new now available is the Winter Chrome blend which is a different steelhead scent option. In the Pacific Northwest this may be more broadly applied to fishing for winter fish, and using the Steelhead blend for summer-runs. In Canada - Spring more-so than fall, Great Lakes - Skamania vs. Fall Steelhead.
Salmon are notorious for developing really picky tastes when they get into the rivers. Upon pushing into tidewaters and rivers all around the nation, salmon become more selective in their choice of baits. Having a scent edge can be a massive factor in certain salmon fisheries and helps to mask human scent as well. The Addicted Salmon Blend is designed to work very well on multiple presentations, Addicted Blends are offered in both "Oil" and "SuperGel" forms.

This can be perfect for applying to plugs, bait wraps, bait, jigs and spinners. Freshening up your eggs with salmon blend or applying oil to spinners has proven to be deadly out of the boat and off the bank. We noticed high ratios of bites on the salmon blend when fished consistently over our first salmon seasons and our many Addicted users have proven this.
Whether you prefer SuperGel or Oil blend on your presentation, we are confident that you will find Salmon Blend a top-producing part of your scent program.

"I used the salmon blend gel on wobblers during the season. I should say one out of the three wobblers. Now, I know it works because I catch a fish in one column of water then I take that wobbler off and replace it with a different one, down lower. Caught a fish there too! Other wobblers just as they were, no bites in said column. Moral of this story, they follow the scent. It's proven and made me a believer. Thanks for such an awesome product." - Michael Yeats
