I run a giant seafood market and have access to thousands of pounds of fresh fish heads/racks. We just toss them everything from small whiting to giant tuna and swordfish- should I be saving these for coon or anything and freezing or is it a waste of time and just stick to the proven lures/essences ?
I am planning on moving to texas for my job soon and have no idea if I would have a use for these there. Or maybe I could help a lure maker out

Fish are good bait for certain targets. With that much easily available make some fish oil.

I never found anything better in coon buckets than fresh yellowfin tuna scraps.

Im sure you know a processor that has fish opilr cheap and easy.

I like using fresh fish or very light taint then preserved.

Cannot think of a thing I have not caught on fish over the years even Fox and a few yotes/ bobcats.


Was born in a Big City Will die in the Country OK with that!

I caught scores of red fox on trout oil, little dab on a Q-tip. A guy in Quarryville, PA makes it. Our reds are so numerous, almost anything works.
Catch them on cheese curls too!
