    Zote soap has been used by trout-liners for many years. The key to it is the amount of grease it contains. I was not aware one could still buy it.

    Default Z S

    I ran across a guy here on the Black Water River who used it on his limb lines.

    He had a cooler of nice fish.

    Never used that before but have seen my grandpa make his own lye soap and he would catch channels all day long. I see Zote dosen't contain lye which is surprising because from what I hear that is the main thing about using soap is the lye. But whatever works for ya good luck.... If you can find or make some lye soap I would say use that I have seen it work like nothing else.

    I always heard it was the pure lard used to make the soap that got the channels attention.

    Default Zote Soap

    Zote Soap is the only bait I use on my trot lines. It never lets me down period. The pink Zote out fishes the white 2 to 1 . Zote attracts fish by leaving a oily film and Catfish just cant resist it. Zote Soap is 66% animal fat and thats good for catching fish.

    Anyone that knows of me or knows me personally, has seen all I use is Zote with much success. Now don't go trying to fish for the large fish using this bait as it mainly attracts eater size fish. Anywhere from 1.5 pounds to 9 pounds. That is the range of fish I target. Mainly Channels and some Blue cats. I have yet to catch a Flathead using this bait.

    Good points for using Zote soap.....

    Cheap bait, and 1 bar makes lots of bait.

    Clean bait. No fishy smell...lol.

    I have yet to catch anything but Catfish on this bait..

    No Gar or Turtles, or drum

    one thing to remember when using Zote is it's a slow bite bait. Meaning it has to be left out for awhile before attracting fish. Pretty much useless on rod & reel. I don't use Jugs but I'm sure it would work on those as well.

    Zote Soap has been the bait for me to use.. It helps fill the Freezer....

    Default Zote Soap

    I visited with a local trotliner that fishes Choke Canyon yesterday. He had baited his line with Cut perch and Zote soap. All the fish were caught on the soap. He only lost one cut bait. Zote soap is still avaliable here in south Texas. I would be interested in why one color of Zote would produce different results. I thought they were both the same basic formula. I didn't get any information from the local about how the baits were arranged.
