    i made a bunch of bait holders last night.i took a piece of latex hose that i got from home depot and cut it into 2" pieces,then pinch it flat and cut a 45 deg.angle on one end, know get the old leather punch you have had in your tool box for a hundred years and put a hole just below the angle cut and the bottom then turn 90 deg.and put one in the middle wahlah!a dip bait holder!

    John sounds like it might work. Give it a trial run then post the results and some pics. I like to use the Looper rigs. They work well for me when channel cat fishing.:big_smile:

    I agree about the Looper's. Best I've every used. Holds bait on very well even in current.

    Thanks for the info, beakus....I noticed an article in Catfish Insider with one of those "tubes" in it...I'm gonna try it....I do the same thing with 4" minnow tubes I get at the local bait shop....I also use regular 3-4" skirted tubes I find on sale....Punch some holes in it and you're good to go.....DemoMan

    I checked out the latex tubing at home depot and it cost around $1.57 a foot....That's $.26 for two inches....I can buy 4" tubes for $.15 a peice...I still like the idea, but I'll stick with 4" tubes and continue to punch holes in the tubes.....DemoMan

    Trust me when I tell you that the tubeing is not all it is cracked up to be. It baits OK the first time, after it gets wet it is worthless.

    Those looper rigs are the real deal. You can fish em side by side and see an amazing difference.

    Just trying to help ya. Good luck with whichever you decide on useing.

    Well, correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you're supposed to let each "dip worm" dry out before reuseing....I think....Seems the bait won't stick to a wet dipper....DemoMan
