To date, a number of different types of scented lures have been disclosed including lures formed from fish food which provides a scent to attract fish (U.S. Pat. No. 5,063,703 to Riley), lures formed of materials that have been intermixed with scents such as U.S. Pat. No. 4,953,319 to Kasper et. al. (a lure with a fish oil intermixed with the plastic formulation from which the lure made) and U.S. Pat. No. 4,875,305 to Bridges (a slowly dissolving lure made of a polymer with an fish scent attractant impregnated therein) and lures having inner receptacles containing scented substances or fluids such as U.S. Pat. No. 5,170,579 to Hollinger (a lure comprising a pouch for receiving bait or scented substances), U.S. Pat. No. 5,321,906 to Bommarito (a fishing scent delivery system comprising a bladder which releases a fishing scent material in the vicinity of a fishing lure) and U.S. Pat. No. 5,517,781 to Paoletta, Jr. (a lure having a reservoir from which a scented fluid is dispensed). Other types of scent bearing lures include those in which scent impregnated materials not integral to the lure structure are included such as U.S. Pat. No. 4,962,609 to Walker (a lure comprising an absorbent fibrous material impregnated with fish attractant), U.S. Pat. No. 5,018,297 to Kennedy, Jr. (a fishing lure with a cellular, porous scent receiving material inserted into a cylinder within the lure) and U.S. Pat. No. 5,142,811 to Freeman (a fishing lure having a fish attractant dispenser such as a scented pipe cleaner inserted into an inner casing).
Unfortunately, lures made of materials with scents impregnated therein have limited lifetimes. Over time, the intensity of the scent diminishes. Similarly, lures comprising reservoirs or compartments containing scented fluids or other scented materials suffer from the same fate, unless the reservoirs or containers are replenished. Finally, it may be desirable to impart a scent to lures which have other desirable characteristics including color, shape and noise-making ability but are lacking in scent.
