Not plastic, not live bait, wiggles like crazy, smells like.....

Bacon!!!! I posted this on the regular ice fishing forum, and thought I'd post it here as well...Went out yesterday...My waxie box was full of black things and the maggots got froze....Decided to try something that worked for me last summer...I cut thin strips of bacon and threaded them on a small horizontal jig, just like a plastic....left a small tail off the back to wiggle seductivly...Boy does that thing wiggle and undulate!!..I found it near impossible to keep it dead still..Salty, just like all those bass worms...Tough, white and wiggly...And I'm sure it takes on food coloring well...Fot the first time this year, I had to use the hemostats to get the hooks out!! They swallered it right up!!...Just an interesting option..P.S....I was using my Aqua View, so I know how incredible the action was...I've never seen a plastic that moves as much!!

So I used some neon food coloring ( Mc Cormicks ) and got a pretty good chartruesse...It definatly takes on food coloring well...Will be wiggling some in front of some sunnies soon....
