Uncle Josh Fishing Baits and Lures

Storing Your Pork Bait
Highly prized among anglers for its saltiness and lifelike motion, pork is unique among fish baits. It is super hardy and can be reused multiple times before needing to be replaced, however you must store it properly. Always store your pork bait in the brine-filled jar it came in, to make sure it does not dry out or lose its salty scent. Many anglers, giddy over the number of fish they’ve caught, have forgotten their pork frogs on the hook when packing away their gear. The pork rind will dry out, requiring a new lure. Properly stored, Uncle Josh pork bait will last for years before needing replacement.
