Depends on how long since it's last bath.
When fishing success rates improve over time for anybody, I think it's substantially due in part to the fine tuning of gear, bait and tactics, one aspect of which is being particular about how the bait smells when the fish are being picky about what they want to chomp on. I'm sold on gloves for handling bait for salmon, and possibly for steelhead, but for most other species I don't think it matters much whether human scent is detectable. Charlie White demonstrated that when salmon are aggressively on the bite, they don't care either.
