    well i think it would just kinda of be funny just to see what has been the most unusual and most weird bait you have used. maybe you still use it to this day maybe not, but i think it would be fun to here what you fellas have to say. :004:

    i actually used a piece of cracklin(pork rind) and caught a small channel on it. i had been using skip jack for quite some time with no luck so as a goof i put the cracklin on the hook. a guy i work with told me that him and his son were fishing a small creek last year and his boy was wearing the cats out on pepperonis! guess i could start going to pizza hut to get bait.:p

    I read an article awhile back that a man used a piece of his own heart that was saved from surgery he had. Nice cat too. Guess he really put his heart into that fish.

    I hear ivory soap, spam and chicken livers spayed with WD40 works but have never tried any that way.

    this is also ILLEGAL in most states, and it does harm the fish.
    But my weirdest bait would have to be using a piece of a channel cats guts. Had 1 or 2 runs but didnt get em. We were just goofing of while we were leaving the creek that we boated up and camped and was out of bait. So here we are about 3 miles paddled up creek and out of bait after about 18 hrs.

    That reminds me of the time I used my womans afterbirth to try and land a monster flathead. I was so pissed off when I only caught a 10 pounder with that huge piece of bait. :p

    I'm just messing around, I don't even have kids. But once I do...




    Hope I didn't make anyone puke or anything.:p

    We eat a lot of fresh swordfish and shark steaks here.I cut the hides away from the meat before grilling them.Save the hide strips and use them for channel cats.They work pretty good on most days , and because they are so tough they last for more than one fish.Not exactly matching the hatch, but the cats enjoy a seafood meal now and then.

    I got a 9 pound channel on Rainens. Ran out of bait, and was not ready to give up fishing, so i did what I thought was a real stupid idea, Yellow raisnens. I took like three hours, and they were hungry but it did pay off. That was in a small farm pond

    A chunk of ivory soap. It worked once, and only once.
