According to a social media post by Field & Stream, if you’re looking to get the fish to bite, try packing around some Play-Doh. I tasted my share of Play-Doh as a kid, which probably explains a lot, but I didn’t realize fish like it. If you think about it, it makes sense, because you can basically turn Play-Doh into whatever you want. Here are the suggestions from Joe Cermele:
How to Catch Fish With Play-Doh // By Joe Cermele
Remember the deliciously salty taste of Play-Doh from when you were a kid? Fish love it, too. Here are three ways to put this nontoxic putty to use on a hook.
Neon Play-Doh balls make great salmon egg imitations, but you can also mold a pinch around a fresh mealworm to make it stand out in stained water.
Cats will eat a hunk of Play-Doh mixed with garlic powder. Packing this mix around your sinker can also lure fish to traditional hook baits as the putty dissolves.
Hook a minnow, then stick a ball of Play-Doh on the point, covering the barb. It keeps the livie from sliding off, and amps visual appeal.
