Has anyone tried this?
Is this believable??

Second, he probably reduces his hook-up rate ten-fold by having such long pieces of it hanging off of the jig's hook. Just a pinch will do, if the bacon is indeed what is attracting the flounder.
Third, A gulp trailer will catch more fish/last longer and is at least as effective, probably more effective
Fourth, do you realize how many pounds of frozen dead shrimp (a tried and true method of "tipping" a jig to make it irresistible to flounder) I could buy for the cost of that bacon???
To sum it up, this is funny and was entertaining to watch, but you are better off tipping your jig hook with dead shrimp or a Gulp swimming mullet or trailer.

I can get bites sometimes from just a bucktail jig but we all know adding a Gulp or tipping it with live bait and dead works.
Good report! Thanks for sharing.
