10 Strange and Unusual Baits To Use While Fishing In The Evansville Area That Actually Work
You might have some luck catching some "big ones" this year by trying some of these nontraditional/weird baits while fishing in the Evansville area.
One of my favorite things to do during the summer is to hit a lake and go fishing. It's an activity you can do with your friends and family or just simply by yourself. Something about getting out on a lake is a great way to de-stress, enjoy life, and have a little excitement whenever you get a bite.
We all know that sometimes the downside of fishing is not catching anything. You can try out all kinds of lures and live baits from the local bait shop. However, sometimes all you need is a little luck and some bait that you'd never expect to try.
Growing up, I would go fishing with some relatives who are related to the Amish. I learned a few tricks on how to catch fish by using some bait that is very unusual. For example, did you know that you can cut up a bar of soap and put it on your hook to catch a mess of catfish? It really works! So that led to me asking what are some of the best nontraditional/weird baits to use when going fishing in the Evansville area. The answers I got were surprising, and I'll definitely be trying them out this year when I go fishing.
