    I have a jar of homemade pork rinds soaked in red food coloring and a super salty solution. i had the intention of using it for bass but i got like 35 strips in there(a lot more than i need). would this work for catfish? its basically pig fat salted and preserved with a red color(doesn't smell to me though).

    I usually like to stick with fresh baits natural to the fish, but I'll try most any bait once. I usually have at least 2 or 3 different baits with me when I fish. Usually what I do (depending on the type of bait) is use 2 hooks on the same line, one with the bait I'm trying and one with a bait I know works, then see which one they like better. Sometimes one fish will have both hooks, sometimes I catch two fish at once, sometimes I find that a bait is no good, and sometimes I find a new go-to bait, but at least I know I've got at least one bait they'll eat and that line isn't just out there waiting for fish that won't eat what's on my hook.

    Basically, you'll never know if it works unless you try, but don't only use that bait, and make sure you use something you know works so that if you don't get anything you'll know it's something other than your bait.
