it sound like your bait shop is 7 11. this is why fishing is fun. i have seen bluefish with chicken bones in side his belly. years ago on the betty w a bluefish had a bottle cap in side him. i would think that does candy jelly worms would work. what tuna could pass up a big mac.

i went down to the local pond with no gear so i went and grabbed some line on the shore and tied the soda can thing on the line a tossed it out as far as i could and let it flutter to the bottom and i caught a 1 1/2 lb crappie.

Caught Stripers and Blues on strips of cotton undershirt!! My Dad and I were catching schoolie Stripers ( catch & release ) on Bucktails, when cocktail Blues moved in to feed also. They tore up our Bucktails, be fore we knew it what Bucktails we had with us were Hairless!! So Dad took off his T-Shirt and started tearing and cutting it into narrow strips about 3-5 inches long. Which we put on out hairless Bucktails and continued to catch fish!!

Both baits have already been mentioned but one (very high) night blues trip on the Capt. Al back in the 70's we were hammering blues from 7 - 10 pounds. One of those nights where you could hardly hit bottom without a hook up. Got to screwing around, caught fish on pieces of ham and strips of white towel. They liked the towel a lot, put a strip on your hook, drop it to the bottom, reel up three cranks, jig it up and down, fish on. Caught several fish on same piece of towel. No body ever said frenzied bluefish were fussy eaters.

In New Rochelle behind Dudley's bar and resturant on the deck STRIPERS on American cheese and french fries. Go there at Hi tide and drop some fries in the water away from the birds and just watch.

Crazy baits!

Even Ozzy Osbourn knows to fish with cheese and chicken! Trout on hot dogs! Trout and chubs on BOOGERS! YES, that's right! BOOGERS! Snots! It's all true folks! You can't make this stuff up!

In the mid to late 60's blowfish were so thick in Great South Bay that when we ran out of bait we would catch them on cigarette butts.

A friend & I were snapper fishing in Howard Beach in August one year. He had to clear a loop in his spinning reel and cast out a bare hook and caught a tinker mackerel.
