Sunblock for Fishing

Since fish can smell so good, is there any sunscreen or sunblock that wont repel them away

Fish do have a good sense of smell, but they actually LIKE strong scents. Not just bad smells like that you find in stink bait, but some scents that are pretty pleasant to us as well. They like coast soap, ivory soap, dial soap…so, if you can find a sunscreen or sunblock that smells similar to something they like, it should actually pull them in closer to you. Avon makes several natural sunscreens with good scents, as do most well known manufacturers. If you are still convinced that your sunblock or sunscreen is repelling the fish, there are several made specifically for fishermen and hunters. Consider ICEUS, Inc. They make sunscreen up to 15 SPF and sunblock up to 30 SPF. Most of them are conventiently packaged in single packets for convenience. They can be slipped easily into a pocket or tackle box. Sunscreenz Angler and Sunscreenz Professional are both brand names marketed by ICEUS. Another manufacturer that markets sunscreen particularly for hunters and fishermen is Burts Bees. This is an all natural sunscreen that contains no chemicals or preservatives. There are others on the market as well, you just have to look for them and use what seems to work the best for you. The fact is, there are solutions out there to help you on your quest to keep the bugs away while still attracting fish. The good news is that these sunscreens are easy to use and not as expensive as you may believe.
