    I have been having great sucess using dip baits. Around here G.S. (good S***, as it known among locals)works great. A trick I was taught by a bait shop owner is to heat your dip bait container in a small pan of hot water. I bring a small butane stove for this. After the dip melts, dip your worm, looper rig, ect. in it, pull out slowly and dip in cool water. I make a half a dozen or so pre rigged and just unsnap the leader when I catch a fish and add another leader with dip bait. With the dip melted it really gets into every crevice of your bait holder and last a lot longer!

    During the winter, I set my sonny's bucket near the fire (not to close but close enough) to warm up and get those oils up and around. I did melt a jar a few years back :cursing:
