    Best way: Just grab hold of it and get it over with. Keep a clean towel handy to wipe your hands on. Gloves are also a viable option. My wife will only touch the bait if she is wearing gloves.

    Baiting a hook is part of fishing. Just do it, and pretty soon its no big deal. Wipe your hands on a towel or old t-shirt. Can't catch fish without bait.

    :big_smile: Dang Cali, I thought we had a new sister on board! :wink:

    You have no choice, now that you've changed your username from "angelfish" to catgrl. You're just gonna have to buck up and handle the bait girl.

    Bait doesn't bother me. I think cutting up a raw whole chicken is gross though. :smile2:

    Try some raw chicken therapy - you'll be fine the next time ya go fishing.

    I can't fish unless I have a rag or towel in each hip pocket. Not that I mind touching the slimy bait, it just make cleaning the rigs easier after the trip is over.BUT I do wipe the slim off my hands after baiting up.

    I can gut and skin a deer, clean fish, cut fish for fresh cut bait, thread on a maggot, but I cannot put a worm on a hook without wearing gloves. I think it's my fear of snakes, and in my mind they're just little tiny snakes.....:crazy:
