Hi,
Everyone had better start stocking up on bait and lure, prices are starting to rise! Lure is increasing as much as $1.50 per ounce and bait is rising variably. Stock up before it gets to expensive! I know MTP is going to raise their prices in August!

They aren’t going to get “too expensive”. They’re very cheap for what you get in my opinion. At least the ones I like.

As a lure and bait maker, I can attest to the fact that to keep using or even finding quality lure ingredients at today's ever increasing prices... we had to raise prices on our products. Realize that we get our glands from trappers and with less (much less) trapping taking place, there is simply a supply and demand situation occurring. We wish it wasn't so.

The price of 1 of the best lures/lure ingredients has remained relatively stable.

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Watkins-Pure-Anise-Extract-2-fl-oz/41488587

$3.44 for 2 ounces.

Comes with just enough alcohol added to keep it working in subfreezing temps, but not enough to tempt me to drink it while out on the line.

And, if it spills all over everything, well, it smells pretty (This word is unacceptable on Trapperman) good.

If you don't like the price hike go ahead and make your own stuff. Bet it will cost more in many ways....

If buy it by the pint or bait by gallon there is a pretty good saving over, the 2 oz or 4oz. Size.
