Ahh yes Joe ! People always laugh at me when I pull out a pack of cheap bacon until the flounder are flippin on the deck. Works well. Major thing is to remember to wash your hands off real well before grabbin' your sandwich. Good way of gettin' sick.
I read this and hear this every year but have not tried it. Maybe I should but it just seems so damn weird to me. What the hell, I am gonna give it one shot this spring and see if it ends up in the bait cooler for the next trip.
Bacon, tampons, orange peels, fake shrimp. And here I always go out of my way to get good killies and marinated squid for the spring opener. What if you let the bacon get a little old without opening it? Think the smell will be even better? (oooh that smell, can't ya smell that smell?)
