I dont know if it is illeagal in NJ But i should look on the Division of fish and game to see if it is illeagal in NJ. If so I will stop doing it.

HUUUUMMMM lets see intentionally putting oil into the water, even if it worked to catch a fish what about the ones it may kill? of course its illegal, use some skills and or a biodegradable purpose built attractant that will more in likely work way better! Just Say'n !!!



Main ingredients for WD-40, from the material safety data sheet, are:

* 50%: Stoddard solvent (mineral spirits, somewhat similar to, but not the same as, kerosene)
* 25%: Liquefied petroleum gas (presumably as a propellant, carbon dioxide is used now to reduce considerable flammability)
* 15+%: Mineral oil (light lubricating oil)
* 10-%: Inert ingredients

I've used it in the fall/early winter but only only on the tip of my rod to keep the water from freezing in the eyes. Don't put it on your lures.

It will take the stink off your fingers when using cat fish dip bait. Anything that causes an oil slick can't be good for the water. WD40 is a water displacing lubricant. The 40th formula they tried. Great for keeping your reels working with ice forming. While it seems to clean a gun, it does leave a build up after a while, that is very hard to remove.

WD-40


A lady got up very early one morning and went outside to pickup the Sunday paper, she noticed someone had sprayed red paint all around the sides of the neighbors brand new beige truck.
She went over and woke him up and gave him the bad news. He was, of course extremely upset.
And they stood there trying to figure out what could be done about the problem. They decided there wasn't much recourse but to wait until Monday, since nothing was open.
Just then another neighbor came out of his house, surveyed the situation and immediately went to get his WD-40 out and cleaned the red paint off with it.
Guess What! It cleaned up that paint without harming the original paint on the truck! I'm impressed!!

Water Displacement #40. The product began from a search for A rust preventative solvent and de greaser to protect Missile parts. WD-40 was created in 1953 by three T echnicians at t he San Diego Rocket Chemical Company.
Its name comes from the project that was to find a
'water displacement' compound.
They were successful with the fortieth formulation, thus WD-40. The Corvair Company bought it in bulk to protect their atlas missile parts.

Ken East (one of the original founders) says there is nothing in WD-40 that would hurt you...'
IT IS MADE FROM FISH OIL' .
When you read the 'shower door' part, try it. It's the first thing that has ever cleaned that spotty shower door.
If yours is plastic, it works just as well as glass. It is a miracle!
Then try it on your stovetop... It is now shinier than it has ever been before.

37) Florida's favorite use 'Cleans and removes love bugs from grills and bumpers.'
3 Protects the Statue of Liberty from the elements.
39) WD-40 attracts fish. Spray a LITTLE on live bait or lures and you will be catching the big one in no time.
40) Ant bites. It takes the sting away immediately and stops the itch.
41) WD-40 is great for removing crayon from walls. Spray on the mark and wipe with a clean rag.
42) If you've washed and dried a tube of lipstick with a load of laundry, saturate the lipstick spots with WD-40 and Presto! Lipstick is gone!
43) If you spray WD-40 on the distributor cap, it will displace the moisture and allow the car to start.

Keep a can of WD-40 in your kitchen cabinet. It is good for oven burns or any other type of
burn. It takes the burned feeling away and heals with NO scarring.
Remember, the basic ingredient is FISH OIL.

Some claim they catch more fish with a wd40 sprayed lure than a clean one. I've heard stories about this since the stuff first came on the market. I haven't tried it yet, but I think I will next time out.

How to Catch More Fish Using WD-40 to Attract Them

WD-40 Lubricant

Everyone who likes to fish is always looking for another way to increase the bite to enable them to catch more fish and hopefully larger fish as well. A little known urban legend is that WD-40 contains fish oil. If it does it would make it a terrific fish attractant. It is also cheaper than using other chemical attractants that are available on the market today. The company that makes WD-40 has safeguarded the formula since it was invented and denies that it contains fish oil. WD-40 was developed in 1953 by technicians at the San Diego Rocket Chemical Company who were searching for a rust preventative solvent and degreaser to protect missile parts. The name comes from the formulation “Water Displacement” (WD) and they were successful with the 40th formulation, thus the name WD-40. Try some the next time you go out fishing and see if the results prove the urban legend true. The most you have to lose is that your lures will be lubricated and resist rust.


Difficulty: Easy
Instructions

Things You'll Need:
  • <LI itxtvisited="1">WD-40 <LI itxtvisited="1">Fishing lures or live bait <LI itxtvisited="1">Fishing rod and reel
  • Fishing tackle
  1. <LI itxtvisited="1">Step 1
    Set up your fishing tackle as you would normally and decide if you are using live bait or artificial lures.
    <LI itxtvisited="1">Step 2
    Spray a small amount on the live bait or lures and then fish as normal. As an additional benefit spraying lures polishes and helps keep them corrosion free. You can also lubricate your fishing reel knobs and internal reel parts.
  2. Step 3
    Some states do not allow chemical laced baits or lures for fishing so check with your local fish and wildlife agencies prior to using any fish attractant. Also the people at bait shops should know if there are any problems with using chemical attractants in the areas that you plan to fish.

Years ago I tried it, fishing for Walleyes and northern pike, bass etc. All I could tell was the fish were not scared of it as I did catch some, but it did not increase my fish catching abilities. I haven't used it since.
