    My uncle always used WD-4- on salmon and I have heard it works for Stripers as well. Does anyone still use it?

    From the WD40 site:

    What a Fish story!

    Myth:*WD-40*contains fish oil.

    Fact:Consumers have told us over the years that they have caught some of the biggest fish ever after protecting their fish hooks and lures withWD-40.* We believe this legend came from folks assuming that the product must contain fish oil since it appears to attract fish.* Sorry Charlie®, it just ain’t so. WD-40*Company has taken steps to respect and conserve the environment, and encourages its users to do the same.* While*WD-40can be used to help protect fishing equipment from rust and corrosion,*WD-40*Company does not recommend using*WD-40*to attract fish.

    WD40 is not a proper choice for a fish attractor, basically Paraffinic distillate and Isoparaffins petroleum hydrotreated that's in WD40 are both rated toxic chemicals. Tho in an American WD40 safety datasheet, it says it's non toxic to fish. But in the Danish safety data sheet, it says it's toxic to water living organisms. So it might not be directly toxic to fish directly, but it's toxic to the water environment in general. So plz don't promote WD40 as a fish attractor!

    As it says on the youtube link you posted.
