    Worked pretty good actually, especially for smaller lakes and such. Really simple to make too.
    Just by some cheap hotdogs and cut them the size you want and mix them with garlic powder and let them sit for however long you feel and there you go. A easy bait to make when you are running short on other baits or money in general.

    two words vienna sausages best thing ever invented for a true fishing boat. Get hungry have a snack. run out of bait put one on. easy to store on the boat, lasts a long time. They even make different flavors like bbq, may even have garlic. Most catfishermen carry garlic on the boat anyway sprinkle a little on em and their you go catfish bait.

    Yeah after you cut them up put them in a bowl and pour however much you think you need and then close the bowl and shake it covering the dogs with the powder...do you understand now???

    My wife uses garlic dogs all the time. She cuts'em in tiny pieces and puts it on a # 8 long shank hook. Then she takes the bluegills she catches and uses them for catfish bait !!!

    should you step on one end of the hot dog to give it that mashed wounded look or simply fish with it regular shape to give it that dead floating look?

    I saw this with my own eyes.....

    Me and Eddy Hankins were scouting out a community lake in the northern part of Texas. We did not have fishing tackle, just walking around the lake with our wives.

    Eddy found a tree limb pole that was rigged with a 1 ought hook and about 20 pound test mono....it was seemingly discarded. Eddy picked it up and carried it with us as we skirted the lake's shoreline.

    We came upon a picnic table and there were remnants of a weiner roast with pieces of bread and hot dog remnants scattered about. Eddy spied a piece of charred hot dog and pinched off a two inch length, impaling it on the hook.

    I told him that he was not going to catch anything with that rig! Undaunted, Eddy waded out into the water about waist deep and flipped the hot dog baited hook into the lake. I just scoffed and started looking at a honey bee swarm that was building a hive in a hollow hackberry tree.

    About a minute or two went by and I heard a commotion! It was Eddy, hooked fast to something that had the tree limb bent double! A minute more and Eddy dragged out a flopping 9 pound channel cat!

    Eddy has never let me live down the fact that I made light of his fishing expertise when he first flung that hot dog baited rig into the water!

    Eddy is a good old boy.

    Seems to me that if you mix the garlic with some hot water and then add to hot dogs it would act as a marinade and soak into the hot dogs. Just a guess haven't tried it.

    I've used garlic dogs for years, they have produced many cats and i found that old bratwurst work great too, i think because of all the oil and fats in the meat. Last summer i took an old pack and slightly cooked them on my little grill and chopped them all up and stuck them in a container, caught channels all night on them as fast as i could get the line back in the water...

    I've never tried them but have heard the red weiners work the best. Those are usually the cheap ones too!
