I am wondering do winners make good bait?
guy here on brazos river fishes and has good luck with weinners soaked in garlic powder and water.
I know a man that takes hot dogs and soaks them with WD-40 and catches a lot of channel cats. Never tried it myself.:big_smile:
On the Missouri River I have used them with good results. However, that being said, you need to use the red skinned weiners. They seem to be the best. I don't know the brand name. I just look for the red ones.
Thinks guys for the help.
Tsk, tsk, tsk...:sad2:

WD40 ? Was his weiners rusting ?
I've used them before. I usually carry a pack in the cooler whenever I go out. They are not the easiest thing to cast. They rip pretty well, especially when they get warm. It helps if you can put them in the dehydrator overnight. It toughens them up quite a bit and they stay on the hook better.
I went to Walnut Creek (local lake) last summer using cheesy hotdogs that had spoiled. I caught 2 bass off the bottom, but no cats.
Guess I should have used those ba$s for baits!
Oscar Meyer cheese filled hot dogs have produced for me. I usually cut them into small pieces and put several on the hook, less tearing that way.
I tried twice time, I don't have luck with catfish, my favor to use chicken liver and nightcrawler for channel. chicken liver has alot juice.. or try use ivory soap. but I would try use ivory soap someday this summer.
Back when I was running trotlines from spring till fall, I tried hot dogs a couple of times. I caught no fish on them, even though I left them on till they turned fuzzy.
I would personally cook the hot dog over an open fire and fish with worms from under a rock or log, insects that could be gathered or some type of cut bait.....just my preference.
I've tried them with no luck at all fishing in a river, got a couple of weak bites fishing in a lake. I stick to eating them now.
A number of fishermen here do well on hot dogs. It's deep water and steep drops with good current and they catch blues of all sizes. Personlly, I have taken them several times, but I wind up eating them and have to use shad for bait -they don't taste nearly as good as the hot dogs. Good fishing!
I've used them on the Susquehanna river with some decent results but they prefer good ol' night Crawlers though in my opinion. Try it out, It sure couldn't hurt any, huh?
Weiners no, hot dogs no..... But them Frankfurters do well...:hell_boy: :byebye:
yea they work on hot days i ahve found if not take a piece of the hot-dog and put it under a little float bluegill lovve it take the bluegill and use it for bait:big_smile:
We run a bunch of jugs at Texoma and bait them with Cocktail Smokies. Hillshire or Great Value from Wall Marcus. With and without cheese, don't seem to matter. We use them untill we get some "real" bait. Holds the hook WELL. Blues and Stripers like them well. Not Big fish...but 5-8 lbs...MMMMMM
around here they work well in ponds and lakes for the channel cats. I have never caught anything out of the river on them. the trick to kepping them on your hook when you cast is to keep them on ice half frozen. they will thaw once they are in the water.
