    I know lots of folks have done quite well using hot dogs, but I've never been able to catch a cat on one.

    A friend of mine uses nightcrawlers with a marshmallow for channels. Thats it. He wont change baits no matter what.

    my buddy and i found a possum ran over in the park we were camping in. there were little 2 inch baby possums laying everywhere (8 or 10) they had been her pouch. my buddy said no use in letting these things go to waste. so we took them and put them on our jugs. caught some blues on them but i assure you it wouldn't ever be a bait of choice. just seemed to be the thing to do at the time.

    My grandpa used to use plug tobacco when he ran out of bait. He swore it worked... but I have yet to try.

    A chunk of stick pepperoni. We were cutting it and eating while we fished. I though what the heck and speared it down the shaft of a treble hook, tied a knot, threw it out, and had a 4-6 pound channel. Now, we didn't catch anything else that night so who knows if it was just the right place at the right time. Never tried it since.
