5. Dog Food
Why feed Fido, when his meal works so well for catching fish?
This one’s for you (doubly-insane) ice fishermen. If you pop the eyeball out of just about any finned critter—a minnow, a bluegill, or some other fish you’ve caught—and thread it onto the hook of your jig, it’ll work wonders.
3. Gummy Worms/Marshmallows
These work surprisingly well when you’re trying to catch bluegill and other species of sunfish.
2. Canned Corn
Much of humanity lives off of corn, so why shouldn’t the fish? Canned corn is best, and if you thread a few kernels onto your hook you can tempt trout, carp, perch, and bluegill into biting.
1. Hot Dogs
Any old brand will work – we aren’t sure if it the shape or the scent – or both – but as you can see in the video – when in the right mood – pike will gobble up Hot Dogs like a kid at the ballpark!
