White pork rind jig on a bare treble hook under a cork. Plop it in the water under tree where cormorants roost . Blues hit it like a bass.

Pork rind is tough and you can use the same piece all day as long as it don't dry out. Even a 30lb can't tear it off the hook.

Huh. I'm just not going to think too much about the details and try it sometime anyways.

There is a theory behind the method.

Cormorants are the most worthless bird alive except for the digested fish they poop in the water all night long. This stuff seems to be a preferred appetizer/chum for blues and other fish that can stand the cold shallow water under the roosting trees. Water depths usually 3 to 12 feet. As stated above the jig presentation needs to look and sound like bird poop hitting the water. If there is a fish under the tree it will slam that jig as soon as it hits the water usually. After 5 to 10 seconds if the cork doesn't go down, move on to the next spot around the target tree and so on. I usually set the cork from 2 to 4 ft deep depending on water depth. Except for the slime, it's a nice clean way to fish for the whiskers. November, December and January are the prime months until the birds move on.

We do the same thing with punch bait. But I like the idea of pork rind.

So folks are jigging up fish that are probably poop eaters their whole life. Probably eating them too.
I got a septic tank folks can fish in.

Yep. Out on the farm the way they cleaned the outhouse was to raise a flap on the back so the chickens could get under there to feast. Same with pigs.
