    I was frying up some bacon tonight and was wandering if anyone has ever used bacon grease to mix in with other baits or if would be any good to mix in with a home made bait.:smile2:

    I have used it several times. I mix it with some cheddar cheese and let it sit out in the sun for a little while. Then i just use a sponge and treble hook. Worked pretty good for some eating sized channels.

    I have never tried the grease but have used salt pork with lots of success. Let us know how it works for you. Interesting.

    Maybe try putting some grease in a nylon sack after the grease hardens. Or put some of it in a dip tube like stink bait. I bet that would leave a nice slick in the water in the summertime when the water temps warm up. Thanks for the idea, I'm gonna give it a shot this spring/summer.
