Meaty baits (non aquatic)

Post by loki »

I hunt a fair bit, and as a result I have a lot
of offal, mainly rabbits livers, kidneys ext.

So I'm going to give them a go as a bait, as they
seem made for the larger hooks 1/0 and up

There juicy/bloody, so should create a good scent trail
so I'm hoping they may prove tempting to a few species.

Anyone ever tryed these sorts of baits ?

Oh

Interesting experiment - I would like to know the result of this one ;)

I too hunt a lot, even if it only brings in the crabs , which can subsquently be used for bait, it has got to be a plus B-)

At first glance at Loki's post I thought it was going to be a poem :D
But yeah, I'd also like to know the result of this one.
Good luck!

I have not done it for a while but I used to get a roll of "Finger Stall Bandage" it is what Hospitals use to bandage a finger , a bit like a tube .

Get a blender and put in any left over fishy bits ,add some fish oil (plenty)and bread , mash it all up then fill bandage to a length of 4/5 inches......push in a 6/0 hook tie off and freeze ......by the dozen.......
When fishing I use snaplinks on the snood / trace ends and simply clip onto hookeyes............WORKED FOR ME...................Q

I read somewhere that rabbits livers were used years ago for sea fishing, but there were loads of fish around then. It will be interesting to see if it works.

Well it caught me 15 of these, though they we also falling to sand
eel and slipper limpet too.

and 4 of something very simular looking, but more
silver, with a mirror affect like petrol on water.



All too small for eating, though one had a try out
as live bait.

Nothing touched the lazy lug, which didnt suprise me, it looks crappy.

Are these poult ? and the mirrored ones whiting ?

Perhaps you ought to freeze dry it and sell it on ebay, ;) well it can't be any worse than other bait sold on there, and it might even catch somthing :)
