Home-made Fish Attractor

January 13, 2011

I would not believe it if I had not seen it with my own eyes!  I’ve read about it but just blew it off as some other wise-crack attempt at attracting fish.  But then I tried it out and man did it change my mind!!

It’s a homemade fish attractor and it’s really easy to make!  You start off with an empty and clean 2 liter bottle.  Make sure all the labeling and glue are off of the plastic.  Drill some holes in a somewhat even pattern on the sides and around the neck of the bottle.  Leave about 5 to 6 inches from the bottom without any holes, you’ll need this to hold some water when you are putting in the minnows.  Next, drill a hole in the cap just large enough so that the cord/line you are using will slip in.  Tie the cord/line around a washer to that it won’t slip back out the hole in the cap.  Now your rig is ready to be used!

Fill the bottle with water from the lake or water from the minnow bucket up to the first series of holes on the sides.  Put in a handful of minnows and screw on the cap.  Lower the bottle over the side of the boat 0r dock and wait for the predator fish to show up!!  Drop in your lines and start catching!!
