I started using  beaver tails for bait a few years ago. Its better than plastics and wax worms.  It has a little bit of oil in them and they are super tough.  I've used the same piece all day.  Little sunnies cant steal your bait.  No need to rebait your hook.  I've used them for crappies, sunnies, perch, and tullibies.

Nope,  the leather is to tough to get the hook through.

I figured I'd have to break out the crayons to draw Glenn a picture....

I don't refreeze it. I take it out of the freezer, open the vacuum sealed bag, take a hacksaw, chop off a chunk, put the rest back in the vacuum bag, reseal and put back in the freezer.

Then, I take the chunk, unthaw, fillet the hide and tail bone out. Then cut the meat into small 🪱 sizes. Then, place them pieces in a small container, put the cover on the container, and then place the filled container in the refrigerator till I go fishing 🎣

Is this clearer for you Glenn? Or do I gotta have Boar explain it to you?  :doah:
