Marker 54 Lures Plastic has a very low absorbency rate .. 3% for water... it’s why your Tupperware never smells like spaghetti .. it won’t do anything .even if there is surface residuals.. 2 or 3 casts and it’s washed off

troutsupport I have used those Zerust dividers and I've not seen any reduction of fish biting. not sure I've seen a big reduction in rust either.. maybe a small reduction. If you like the design of the tackle box get it, but if you're getting it solely for the rust reduction I don't think it's worth it.

Rinse tackle and let it dry immediately is the best solution. My buddy Reed A has a cleaning table at their cabin that gets good wind.. I think it would be even better in the sun.. or for those of you that don't have that.. rinse at home and blot dry and leave lid open on counter or garage counter until dry.

Most of the time the hook is set before the fish 'taste' or 'smell' the lure.

[email protected] Muddskipper: This is from Flambeau's website...

Flambeau's exclusive Zerust® VCI products consist of a proprietary chemical formulation that releases an invisible, odorless, tasteless, and FDA-safe vapor that diffuses throughout an enclosed Tuff Tainer® and settles on all exposed metal surfaces to form a protective molecular layer that inhibits the electrochemical reactions that cause rust and corrosion to form.

RedFlounderBass I have a few of the 3600 sized boxes for hard baits and terminal tackle-Been using them for a few years now. Never noticed any scent coming from them. I don’t sniff my baits though, lol. The rust inhibitor seems to help, as I usually try to dry off plugs before I put them back in their place. Pretty good product, imo.

I have another deep box from them for soft plastic storage that has huge dividers and works great for what I wanted it for.

Will this tackle tray leave a scent on my lures?

Many of you I am sure have seen these Flambeau Trays that help prevent rust, w/ Zerust Dividers.

Here is one that is on sale

MY question is do you feel that the rust inhibitor would leave a scent on the lures?
-We work them fast enough - would the fish even have a chance to realize the smell?
