does anybody on the furum use old smelly baits that are way past there best i know it is written in the mags the importance of useing fresh baits , but surely pike are oppotunist feeders they will pick up most free meals no mater how old the bait is plus an old bait would give off more sent .The reason i thought of this i was reading an old article in pike lines this guy swears by really old herring and caught some good fish on it

In my opinion the smellier the better, however how do you go about getting an old smelly fish for bait. Obviously we all freeze our bait but if we where wanting it to decompose to a certain level its gonna stink. The smell of rotten fish lingers for a lifetime lol. If you where to store it in a shed then it would attract rodents and cats etc. So yeah i think they would work fine and maybe be better but seems to much a hassle when you can just buy fresh frozen bounce

Interesting this one.

I went sea fishing last Winter and so have got a few rockling in my freezer. These stink and feel slimy even when frozen yet I've never caught on them.

Any idea why?

you could use them frozen but you would probably only get the first cast and i was thinking of useing them in the margins the good thing about useing a soft bait is that it will strike out easy into the fish it just might give you the edge this guy who swears by them said his baits were rancid and i think he did mostly boat fishing so casting was not a problem .I allways carry some anti bact gel wash when handling fish baits anyway or you could wear the disposible rubber gloves

Bait elastic is great stuff for soft baits..... Herring, smelt sardines anything like that needs to be defrosted to release all the juices.

Seen them in magazines but never seen them being used. Will see someone using them someday. I know they use them alot in sea fishing with impact sheids for casting soft baits.
