    I've used it on occasion when nothing else was working. Caught a few eating-size channels.

    I've caught lots of fish on trotlines and limblines using cheap hotdogs. That's about all I use on them.

    Iv'e never had an luck on hot dogs,but my neighbor caught some nice channels last week on them. Look at it this way if you use it and you get hungry I guess you can always eat them your self. Long as you keep them cool that is. Don't be eatin no spoiled dogs. Food Poison ain't no fun. Had it twice ,don't want it nomore.

    We used to catch pond cats on hot dogs when we were kids. It would get fast and furious. I've baited trotlines before with hot dogs and had absolutely no luck, then turn around the same weekend and bait the same lines with shiners and tear em up. That's why I pretty much exclusively use shiners or small perch on my lines.

    I've caught small channels on them. I used to cut them up & cover them in garlic salt.

    A lot of folks use them down here on jug lines and do quite well. Have not heard of any monsters but I do hear of some good catchs. Even heard of one person who caught a 20 lb flathead on the things....but mostly Blues and Channels.

    The Picture on top of the page that D/H has was caught on a Hot dog..
    He will not own up to it. but that is what I keep hearing they were using. But don't know if that was a red hot dog from a pack or a dog...

    All kidding aside. If you use hot dogs get the small red ones. That ones that most people would not eat. They work best..
