    I am going to try some strawberry Mike and Ikes this morning. Has anyone had any success using candy for bait, I have heard that marshmellows will work, and gummy worms can work for bass. Will post results later today.

    I caught an 18 inch trout on a gummy worm just messing around once. Probably just freaky luck though.

    I don't know trout may be the prettyboys fish, but they eat some weird stuff! I have caught bluegils on corn that had pixie stix candy mixed in it.

    i seen a dad fishing off a dock one day when his kid asked him not to dirty his hook with a worm and use something yummy like a gummy worm and 10 minutes later pulled up a 10 lb. channel.

    i have seen folks use licorish (spelling?) stick before with success. think it might be the anise oil or extract in it.

    You are correct in that assumtion. Black jelly beans work too because of the anise extract.

    I never used Mike & Ikes but I have used the little marshmellows and shrimp, like a ka-bob two MM and one shrimp. nothing big caught but it did catch fish.

    Caught one with a cigarette butt once when I ran out of bait. I have no idea how it worked or what the hell I was thinking. Sometimes the retarded ideas work the best.:lol:

    I've caught a catfish with a cigarette butt in its stomach once on the mighty mississippi river and my cousin used to use her gum to catch some fish but i cant remember what she caught
