    I've had good luck with hot dogs soaked in garlic and anise extract. I get the cheapest hot dogs I can find and mix them with garlic that I buy in a jar at Wal-mart and a little anise extract ( I can't find anise oil). Then I put it into the fridge for a week or two.

    It works well on trotlines and yoyo's. I have trouble keeping it on the hook when casting though.

    I've had good luck with jennyo chicken hotdogs, and you can snack on the bait if the fish don't! even my puppy likes them.

    use a trebble hook and a snap swivel for casting. Slide the hot dog peace down the center of the hook then snap it on the swivel.

    I have caught may a catfish on hot dogs! I get the the cheapest that I can find and set them out in the sun for a day. The only bad thing is that it is hard to cast them very far!

    Slice up 1lb of hot dogs then put them all in a blender blend them well. then empty them into a large bowl and add to the hot dog mix your anise oil or what ever you want then stir them well. if not thick enuff for you add alittle flour to it and mix again.

    Get you some looper rigs dip them init and work it around pull it out and cast and wait for the fish to hit. hope this is to some help.

    An old timer on the river running jugs swears by hotdogs.... it's all he uses. He puts them in a plastic container with a lid and adds red and yellow food coloring to make them a bright orange.

    That sounds like it might work but doesn't it change the flavor when you eat the leftovers?

    My recipe for hot dogs is: I cut up three hot dogs in about a half inch pieces and then i add blood from the jar of chicken liver. Next i will add a buch of vanilla extract and a LOT of garlic powder. Next i added a seasoning called adobo which is great for the cats. I also added horseradish and spicy mustard. As i was whippin this concoction up i figured i like everything in here and cats love everything so it will work. And what do you know it does work. I highly recomend it.
