Has anyone used this and can verify that it catches more crabs?

I have the blue bottle.  I would lean towards that it works.  I had chicken marinated with this stuff and frozen.  I noticed that with plain chicken, the crabs aren't attracted to it after a while (like the ocean washes away the odor).  If I marinade the chicken with this stuff and froze it, then when it's in the water, the attractant slowly leeches out of the bait, and I feel this keeps the crabs coming.

I used it and I did catch 1 keeper (a lot of shorts).  I didn't have a trap that did not have the attractant so I don't have a control.  Maybe it's the placeabo effect.

IMHO most crab "attractants" don't attract more crabs but they do attract "crabbers" 
If you absolutely have to use a liquid "attractant", try soaking chicken necks in bunker(menhaden) oil.

I agree with this. When I get my chicken necks and bunker ready for crabbing, I put both together and wrap them up so that the chicken can absorb the bunker blood.

At slack tide (slow bite) I have dropped dry cat food around handlines on pier, I have to say I think it helped a few times, but I could be WRONG and if so I know I will hear about it HERE!

If you make up a secret bait or concoction to increase your catch, by the time you think you have it figured out the crabs will make a liar out of you the very next trip.

Actually I will say it works, as it was written on the bottle, you can just soak a rag with it.  I had a ring trap with a nanofiber towel soaked with the stuff and shorts did come...which means crabs DO smell it and are attracted to it.

Years ago I used a paste called Chicken Blood from Walmart that was a dough permeated with chicken blood that was supposed to catch more fish. I put it in bunker and chicken backs.Caught 3 times the crabs with it compared to plain bait.The problem was that the crabs that ate the chicken blood had a metallic taste to them.

Last week I used some on chicken that I marinated and had frozen from a previous trip. 5 traps with those pieces and 5 traps with fresh chicken purchased the night before. The fresh chicken out-crabbed the crab fuel chicken 3 to 1. Not exactly scientific since the frozen vs fresh was a confounding variable but it surprised me.

A better experiment would have been to use fresh marinated vs non marinated.

Seems to me like the best crab attractant is fresh bait.

I did that once on my troutline. What a stinking mess . If you get it on your boat it is very slippery, hard to clean and what a rancid smell. I soaked the whole line. Bait and all. Didn't catch any more crabs either.

It may have worked if you tried a trotline instead. It's meant to attract crabs, not trout.
