    Default Hot dog weiners for bait?

    I hear about some of you talking about using weiners for bait. Are they very effective? How do you use them? I mean, do you cook em first, or just take them outta the packet and throw em in?

    Also, if it matters, what is the best kind to use? They seem like they'd be pretty good cheap bait.

    Adrian most fisherman love to experiment. Those that have used Hot Dogs successful. Cut them in small chunks, place them in a zip lock bag, and soak them in garlic or anise extract. Place them on a hook, leaving the point of the hook exposed and cast them out. I hope this works for you. You can do other baits the same way.:smile2:

    I cut them in to 1/2in or 1in peaces, then use them like that or I'll put them in some Koolaid to change there color. I put the hook through the peace of hotdog then I turn the hook back in to the peace. It makes it weedless and you'll find that it won't cast off as much that way.

    Hot dogs have worked for me I have caught plenty of them with this bait. You can also marinate them in garlic as Mickey has stated. Use them uncooked if you want you can zap them in the microwave on medium setting for about 10 seconds just to get the juices in them flowing (dont cook them they dont hold as well). Seems like the cheaper ones work better the pricey one that they mix chicken, turkey and beef in them. But I have used the pricey Ball Parks one with success also. So i guess you might have to do a little experimenting with them.

    A little trick I use with the dogs is when I get set up and anchored down I slice little thin slices off and pitch them in the water around the boat. If there are any minnows around they will boil the water fighting over the small floating pieces and that in turn lets the bigger fish hear or feel the feeding frenzy and they come searching for the bait fish,
    This has produced some good fish. Bass , crappie, and cats.

    Default Weiners for bait

    I use them until I can trap bream for cut bait. Buy the cheap ones $.79 / #.
    They work good except they don't stay on the hook very well in water with much current
