    I was told this bait would work and well I was curious if anyone has ever tried using it.A guy I was talking to while fishing was telling me he uses tampons for bait.Seems he takes em and lets them soak up blood from chicken livers.Said he catches alot of fish.Would you try this?

    I think it would work good, but the only problem I see is, you'll only be able to fish 1 week a month.

    I have heard them multiple other things (deer hunting during rut) and I am not surprised. Not much different than a dip bait sponge really

    I wouldn't know of any reason that it wouldn't work but I think that the blood would wash out of them pretty quick if the is much current and you would lose the scent and have to replace the bait often.

    If I tried this method I think I would use it in a lake or a slough or somewhere where there wasn't as much current as the river.

    I had a thought that crossed my mind.My wife doesn't fish and what would she say if she found them in my tackle box.

    Nope, wouldn't do it. If I can't catch a fish on baitfish or worms, I chalk it up as 'the fish weren't biting'. HOWEVER, there is other uses for tampons. Wrestlers in school use them to stick up their nose when they get a nose bleed. Seems to work well for that. I think that dude was some sort of freek.
