I used to use pork all the time. I stopped using it about 5 or 6 years ago. Plastics are maintenance free.

I use pork year round.  I'm all about trying to give the fish a different look than what all the other anglers are throwing and people flat out don't fish pork trailers anymore, especially in warmer water.  I fish the bigger pork trailers in winter to help slow the fall, and as the water warms, I usually downsize to help speed up the drop speed of the jig or move up to a heavier weight.  This helps with getting more reaction strikes.  Then as the water cools again, begin upsizing to slow the fall according to water temp.  Pork trailers are awesome, man.  The fish never see em.

I used to use pork all the time 20 years ago.  One thing to remember when using pork.  After you use the

jig and pig, and decide to use a rubber worm on a different rod, make sure you allow the jig and pig to

trail just over the side of the boat keeping the pork wet.  Otherwise in 30 minutes you got one dried up

piece of pork.  They also make a wrap, that you dip overboard, then wrap it around the rod, and jig

keeping the pork wet.  I have one and keep it in my tackle box for when I use pork.  The best thing about

pork is when you use it, and the bass takes the jig, it has a natural live feel, and taste to it.  Unfortunately

it is pricey.

Nope.

 

It is a cold water jig trailer.

Keep in mind the surface water may be 80+ degrees, the water a little deep is more than likely in the 70's.

It's a myth that pork is better in cold water....it's better year around for large adult size bass.

A few things to know about a good pork rind jig trailer:

1. It should be soft, not stiff.

2. It should float, not sink.

3. It should be kept wet all the time so does not dry out.

4. Use basic colors; black, brown or purple.

5. Use basic shapes; frog in 2 1/2" to 3".

How to use a pork jig trailer:

1. Nose hook about 1/8-1/4" back from the front end, it maybe pre cut.

2. Put a 1/2-3/4" piece of plastic worm on the jig hook, before putting on the pork trailer, this prevents the pork from fowling the hook point.

3. Do not cover a pork trailer with commercial attractants. Use pure anise oil by adding a few drops in the pork ring jar.

4. Get a pig blanket or use a old clean wash cloth to keep the pork trailer wet when not using fishing with it. Keep the the pork trailer wet so it doesn't dry out.

5. The soft natural swimming motion of a pork trailer is suttle unlike most frantic movements of plastic trailers and this appears to be too slow for warmer water bass.....it's not!

When you cast the jig like a Texas rigged plastic worm....slow down, take a deep breath and let the jig swim down ad hit bottom. A good soft high flotation pork trailer will do all the work for you....like a Senko!

Retrieve the jig like a T-rigged worm with shorter hops and longer pauses. Strikes are very hard to detect, the bass simply engulfs the jig, so set the hook if something doesn't feel normal.

Good luck.

That is like telling a fly fisherman to,use a meal worm.
