Survival Life community member, Steve B, sent in this quick tip to help you snag some fresh fishing bait the next time you’re out at the docks and find yourself all out.
I found it an interesting and innovative way to make use of all the trash that gets left behind.
Read on and let me know what you think about this quick tip:
No, I’m not talking about your mother in law…
Just a handy way to catch minnows.
All you do is cut a two liter bottle all the way around in the area where the top of the label is.
Turn the top around so that it makes a funnel into the body and place holes through the body.
Then, through the top so that a stick can be put through to hold it in place.
Also place a few holes in the body to help it sink and an optional string can be tied to the body to anchor it place a few small rocks inside for ballast and you best tasting minnow bait.
IE: worms, grubs, or dough balls.
Place it in stream or pond you have to help it sink a little but it works fine and uses up some of the trash laying around .
And remember don’t leave it, dispose of it.
