How to avoid the smell on my clothes when I go fishing?

Postby ccjoseph » Fri Jan 30, 2015 1:42 am

Hi every one,
I practiced fishing as a leisure for a long time now. I started when I was young with my dad and uncle. Back then I can remember how smelly we were when we came back home after fishing.
I love fishing but if could avoid to smell the fish for hours after it, I think I would like it better.
What do you guys do about this issue? How do you avoid to smell to get into your clothes? Is there any specific material that is recommended for fishing clothes in order to avoid this inconvenience?

CRC make a product called "Oda-kill"
I pump 2x squirts into a bucket of salt water (or fresh if avail.) Wash hands + knives + cutting board and rest goes over previously wet down deck (to lessen blood and guts soaking in) and scrub. Kind of smells like aniseed.
Have not used it on clothes. Polypro thermals are usually washed with half cup of white vinegar to sanitise them and neutralise smell. Will help with fish smell. White vinegar is great for neutralising most odors.
Would not advise Oda-kill on thermals, as if they used for hunting, game will smell it a mile away.
Hope this helps.

My solution has always been not to catch anything.

Have you tried the extra strength Fabreez?

I know for certain that JOhnson's Baby wipes in the blue box will take fish smells off of your hands like nothing else I have ever tried.

Just do what I do when I go fishing.
Don't put a hook on the line.
You see I don't like cleaning fish so that is why no hook.
No catchy, no cleany .
This could also work for , no catchy , no stinky.
Saves money on bait, but costs more to stop at the fish shop on the way home.

I have just resigned myself to the fact that I'm going to stink. That's all there is to it. But by God I eat well!! ;)
