    Do you think fish like bacon? I was thinking that maybe you could soak lures in grease and lure fish in with the scent. Would it even smell? Don't know. Input please.

      How do fish find food in turbid water? I think they rely on smell to some degree. My problem with bacon would be that none of it would ever be left over for bait. Also,as a kid, I remember seeing pickled pork rinds for sale as bass bait.

        YooperJack - they still sell the Uncle Josh pork rind baits. Still some of the best things to put on a jig. I agree with you, bacon would be way to enticing to make it to the hook.

              Never tried it. But I have ran out of bait and used shell mac and cheese to catch some catfish and bluegill.

                  everything loves bacon.....ive caught catfish on bacon on a camping trip once...you have to cook it so its chewy though its stays on the hook then

                          Just don't try it on flies. The flyfishing gods will appear in your dreams.

                            This sounds like a winner to me. I think I'm going to soak some hotdogs in bacon grease and use that for catfish!!! Stay tuned for a report.

                              I almost guarantee it will work. Fish love hot dogs.

                                I do feel sorry for those rookie cops on the scene who had their backs to the brutality being committed by their senior officer.

                                Body cam footage shows Floyd wasn't murdered. The cop kneeling on his neck might have been negligent, but his actions did not kill Floyd.
