Hey Everyone,

Got a question about chicken breast. Does this bait stay on the hook fairly well when your chucking it out? Do you hook once like a squid strip or do you have to hook a couple times to hold? I will be as always using circle hooks (Octopus). Like I posted earlier myself and a bud are heading to PLO Thurday night for some action. Hope to try chicken. Oh one more thing I just thought of. Is frozen chicken alright or is fresh better. Sorry for all the questions but never used this bait before. I always try to be fully prepared for anything. Thanks
Should hit PLO by 8:00pm Thurday night.

FISHNHOLE,

I've used nothing but circle hooks for over 5 years and never had a problem keeping chicken on, it holds the hook very well. Freash is always best. One thing thoe, when you cut the breast up always cut them with the grain of the meat...Goodluck at PLO, Hat80

Most bait shops in the Chesapeake area doesn't carry it. You can get them on the coast in DE and Ocean city. I think that Sue Foster of Oyster Bay Tackle carry it and she has a website that you can order it from. I believe it's www.oysterbaytackle.com but you may want to check that. Also some people call it shedder oil so maybe try asking for that. I saw a lot of people at Cape Helopen using chicken breast but wasn't sure if they were using peeler/shedder oil. Hope this helps.

Joe mama,

I see your in Jessup. You can get shedder oil at Tylers Tackle Shop in Chesapeake Beach. It's about $5.75 a bottle, don't use to much. A few drops go's a long way. Ricks marina at Point Lookout also has it....Tightlines

Hey Fatback I am from FL and never thought of using chicken for bait either. I believe the live shrimp you get in the southern states is a better bait for trout but up here chicken is definitely a great bait. It might be worth a try though.

Greetings Fatback!

Live shrimp will outfish Purdue Peelers 4 out of 5 days. But on that fifth day, watch out.... some big weaks have fallen hard for tenders!

You got that right. I want you to fish next to Hat at the cleanup and see who can catch more fish with their "recipe" peelers. I believe when Jake puts his in the water the fish can smell it from PLO State Park:D
