LSU biologist, chemical engineer partner with industry to develop best soft lure available

ent to use and can dry out on the hook as a hard, crusty material. But once we brought James into the mix with President of Mystic Tackleworks Howard Hammonds and manufacturer Bill Trevino of Fisherman III Lures Inc. (Apopka, FL), they were able to develop the perfect material, a convenient 'package' that's easy to transport and use in the limited confines of a boat. It not only houses the Sci-X compound but effectively releases it in a no fuss, no muss kind of way."

Hammonds, a 20-year veteran in the fishing tackle industry, worked closely with Henry to develop some essential requirements for the lure matrix.

"Howard [Hammonds] gave me the parameters I needed to fulfill in order for the lure to be successful," said Henry. "I needed those details in order to develop a matrix that could house the compound effectively. He was extremely helpful in the process."

The characteristics of this matrix also allow for the lures to be produced in a range of dynamic colors and styles, allowing fishermen the flexibility to choose from dozens of designs.

"Attraxx really is a revolutionary bait," said Caprio. "In 2010, we started to field test it and also sent prototypes to professional fishermen, boat captains, sportswriters and regular weekend fishermen. The feedback has been overwhelming!"

Many Attraxx users have written the company to express their love for the effectiveness of the bait, its ease of use and also its ability to attract both freshwater and saltwater fish.

"What do fishermen want a lure to do? Attract fish and get them to bite, right? Well, without a doubt, that's what Attraxx with Sci-X does," said Caprio. "I formulated Sci-X to be attractive to any species of fish anywhere. And that's what fisherman are catching with it everything!"

In fact, reports of catching everything from redfish, snapper and speckled trout to black drum, flounder and freshwater largemouth bass are common.
