    Chitlings. Cut into bait-sized pieces, drop into ziploc bag, and add your favorite flavoring, such as garlic powder, or the contents of several flavor packets from shrimp flavored Ramen noodles. Actually, you can use whatever brand is cheapest. Cataholic and I tried both of those, and the garlic flavored chitlings seemed to do just a little better than the shrimp flavored ones. And they will stay on the hook till you take them off! It's cheap, it catches fish, and it stays on the hook forever. I haven't had a chance to try it head to head against fresh shad or fresh skipjack, but it outproduced frozen skipjack; and cured chicken livers came in last.

    Well now, I'm one for trying just about anything, whether it's for eating, or for fishing. Chitlings fall into the small category of things I've tried eating one time and don't plan on ever trying a second time. As far as using them for bait, there are some nice advantages, but they are no miracle bait--sometimes they work very well, sometimes fairly well, and sometimes they don't seem to work at all. Chitlings are cheap, and once you put them on a single hook, they are there till you remove them, which isn't real easy. I've never had chitlings eaten off the hook. The only thing I've ever found that will even begin to match them for staying on a hook is salt pork.

    I may have been wrong. When we lived in California, I tried some "tripas" cooked on a barbeque grill and liked them. I always thought that it was just the Spanish word for tripe, but after having "tripas" translated, I found that it means intestines. The Spanish word for tripe is something else entirely. So, Flaboy, I have tried them fried (grilled) and liked them quite well.
