Jig N Pig Question

Recommended Posts

So this winter I have been throwing mostly a jig n pig combo on these small lakes I work on.  Love it, fun way to catch fish. The other night at the local walmart they had Uncle Josh's number 11 pork chunks for only 50 ceants a pop. People around here apparently dont know what theyre missing. Question is....do these pork chunks store well for an extended period of time?

 

If so, I might just make a trip over there this evening and buy all the rest of em they got.

I've stored several jars of both used baits and sealed jars for a couple of years. 

 

Keep an eye on the fluid level (salt Brine) as the baits must stay submerged.

 

Of course you could always ask Uncle Josh . . . .

Thanks for the link...dont know why I didnt think of that. haha

 

But as long as youve had them for a couple years im gonna go ahead and purchase them all. I run some beginning  fishing programs at the outfitters center i work that im sure we could use them for if i dont run out of them first.  Im still gonna contact Uncle Josh to ask specifics.

What A-Jay said!

Never add Real Craw to it & forget it for a year & then throw it.

I have some pork jars that are over 30 years old that still look OK.

Uncle Josh tends to get stiff and may need to be tenderized so they float and be flexible. The easy way to tenderize a pork trailer is with a hobby size rock polisher/tumbler. The cheap method is using a meat tenderizing hammer on a plank of wood...messy but works good.

To make up additional heavy salt water solution; boil sea salt a cup of salt to 2 cups of water for about 15 minutes.

Another tip; put a few drops of pure anise oil in each pork rind bottle.

To re dye the pork, use Rit liquid dye, mix 1part dye to 2 parts warm water, put the pork rinds in the dye over night, then rinse, place into the heavy salt water jar. Use glass jars with plastic screw on lids and fill full.

Get yourself a pig blanket or foam lined lure saver to keep the pork trailer soft while fishing other lures so it stays wet. The original jig & pig works great....good fishing!

So what about the bottles ive picked up?They still have the brine solution but theres a brown gooey gel inside the jar as well. What might that gel stuff be and will it hinder the pork? The pork is still soft but im wondering if maybe its breaking down.
