Any ever use hotdogs?

Recommended Posts

You mean using hot dogs to fish with?  Are you serious about this?  I've used 'em to catch catfish, but I've never heard anything about catching bass on them!  That's some crazy s#@$.  Let me know if you hear anything else about this. I'ts got me really curious........    :o

You're kidding rite? It sounds like you need to concider your source. They might be pulling your leg.

Hmm....

So do the bun length hotdogs work better?  Next thing you know, there will be an arguement over whether the cheese filled ones produce more bass than the standard ones.

sure...when the bite is tough, just add some condiments...ketchup, mustard, relish.  If your fishing down south, I hear the hot sauce works well. ;D

I'll try anything once. Now where are those Ballparks...... I hope I have a hook big enough..... Hey I could use this flavor injector and my special sauce. Now I have bait and lunch covered.

I would think cheesedogs would be the best.... "When fish bite, they get an irresistable squirt of processed cheesewiz and won't let go!!!"....ahhh, I can see the ad's now... ;)

Yeah, but how do you fish hot dogs?  Is it like using a weightless senko, or do you fish it more like a crankbait.  Maybe if I try a twitch, twitch, pause, I could fish it like a Zara Spook.  

Never heard of using hot dogs for bass.  I'm sure I could get a gar to bite on one though.

Either those bass are a) hungry B) stupid or c) a mixture of both.

Unless he added some type of attractant, like MegaStrike, or Spike It, or something like that, I see no reason why a bass would hit a slice of a hotdog.

I put a drop line out once for catfish with a hotdog on the end of it, and it wasn't 1 min. after I dropped it into the water that a bass nailed it.  

I too have no reason why a bass would hit it, but from my experience a bass with hit some crazy things.

Rig it wacky style, just like a senko, hey let's see how much does a pack of hotdogs cost?  Might be cheaper then a bag of Senkos.  Durability probably the same.  Don't know about the fall rate though.  Raul we might need you on this one.  Or RW.

Hey Kbj3579, I don't know about the wacky style rig with a hot dog.  I think the first time you twitched it, it would just fall off the hook.  Funny concept though, isn't it?  I think if you rigged it like a super fluke, with a Gammy EWG, and maybe some relish, and fished it like a soft jerk bait, maybe that would produce some results.  Wow, folks, I can't believe we're talking about fishing with hot dogs and ketchup to catch bass.  Keep the posts coming, though, they crack me up!   :D

Ok, here is food for thought on why a bass will eat a hot dog. If i would have told you 40 years ago to put a pice of PORK on a jig and bass would eat it, you would have told me i am out of my mind. What dose a hot dog and pork that we use today have in common? Amino Acids! I have seen big bass caught on hot dogs in the local ponds and have caught some in the local lakes when fishing for catfish. I was like most of you at first, why the hell would a bass eat a hot dog? For a bass to grow large and healthy it needs amino acids, thats why the pray on crayfish, bluegils, other bass ect. A bass can't live on shad alone. Thats the conclusion that makes the most sence to me.

No, But I have used something we call Ring Bologna

for panfish when I would take my children out fishing. I'd cut the meat up into small squares.

It works.

If you want to fish with food, try a licorice stick.  A closely related flavor, anise, was the most popular addition to fishing lures before garlic.  Then of course in the 1970's there were the jelly worms sold in fruit flavors. And also in the later 70's was the Action worm that smelled of cinnamon.

Of course, hot dogs would be illegal in a tournament and most of us prefer not to use anything that wouldn't be tournament legal.
