    I've never heard of using corn cobs, but there is a guy on here that uses loofas to soak up liver blood.

    I don't see anything about a corncob that would hold dip bait to it. If you have any kind of squishy (not liquid) bait, you can work it into a bait-sized piece of loofa and it will be almost impossible to get out. And the loofa is strong enough to simply put on a single hook without string, hose, cheesecloth, or any of that mess.

    :cool: I would imagine hooking a corn cob would not be easy, and if a cat did take the bait I doubt the fish would get hooked due to the toughness of the corncob, restricting the movement of the hook. Although I do believe the cob would soke up whatever liquid you put it in. The loofa sounds much better.

    I found my cheesecloth at a Target store in the cooking section. :)
