Scent: Understanding a Fish’s Sense of Smell
A fish’s nose is made up of two openings (nostrils) on the head. The sense of smell is very important to a fish, because it helps them find their food and warns them of danger. The Berge Tackle Scent Dispenser that precedes your lure dispenses your scent liquid, solid, or gel more effectively than anything on the market. The flow-through chamber is customizable to allow you to control the rate of scent dispersal. This unique design helps your scent products leave a stronger trail for fish to follow and last longer than ever before.
According to Bass researcher, Carlton “Doc” Holliday, A fish’s ability to smell is documented to be approximately 1,000 times better than a dog. Fish Biologists also proved in some fish species that a fish’s system of smell can double and even triple as the fish age.

Sight: How Fish See
The Berge Tackle Scent Dispenser is available in multiple colors to fit your fishing situation or to simulate a fish’s natural prey – Herring, Mackerel, Sardines. Additionally, you can add reflective tape to the dispenser to lure fish using the proven flasher technique.
As the Berge Tackle Scent Dispenser moves through the water it spins a full 360 degrees and you can customize the rate and fashion of the spin for your fishing conditions (ie. slower, off-centered, egg-rolled). Flashers are normally trolled at 1.7 – 2.5 miles per hour. This speed gives an excellent tail kicking action. It can be trolled as slow as 1.5 and as fast as 3.5 and still work effectively.
Sound: Do fish really hear?
Fish hear, but their “ears” are on the inside. Bony fishes detect vibrations through their “earstones” called otoliths. The Berge Tackle Scent Dispenser attracts fish as it moves through the water creating vibration and a clicking sound that fish “hear” even if they are far away. Fish are naturally curious and our dispenser creating a highly alluring clicking sound! This works ideally in trolling situations.
