What is the strangest fish bait you ever used that worked?
Was there ever a fish bait that you tried to use that worked out much better than you thought it would? Curious what things work as bait that might surprise some people
I have been an avid fisherman for nearly 50 years. I have tried many strange things that worked wonders for catching fish. Among them were Preparation H (added to a bait or lure), a chunk of ham out of my sandwich, a twistie bread tie, a piece of cloth from my shirt and a church key type bottle opener.
I've used almost any thing you can imagine, chicken, bacon, bread, and even put some beads on above a bare shiny gold hook and caught fish. When fish are schooling they'll bite at any thing that looks or smells like food.
One thing I found as a great bait is Tomato Worms for fishing in both fresh and saltwater. I once read a hub about a guy who carved a carrot to look like a minnow and catch fish, but I have not tried that one! Like others had written, in the right condition anything shinny can catch fish...
As an avid fly fisherman I attempt to create the perfect fly that mimics that seen in nature. I spend hours watching and studying different hatches and the stages they go through. Maybe a bit of a purest in some ways... but as a kid I recall once catching a Northern Pike on a single penny hook with a chunk of wiener on it... It was Dad's idea...
The strangest fish bait I have ever used and it actually caught the largest bass I have ever caught out of a pond was the petal from a sunflower. I ran out of bait and just put one yellow sunflower petal on my hook and caught a very large bass with it.
