Default Pork rind trailer- still relavent?

Hi everyone. Was looking at a sale offering. They had pork rind trailers for 50% off. Anyone still use pork? I haven't even thought about them in a long time.

Up till last year I still liked to use pork when the water was cold, but with a lot of the new plastics they have out now, I belive they work just as good as pork. I would still use pork if it was easier to manage, trying to keep it wet, and getting it off the hook is a booger sometimes.

Pork trailers are not for the average angler; too messy and look ugly compared to good looking soft plastic trailers. If your goal is to catch numbers of average size bass, fish fast and cover water, pork trailers are not for you.
Most anglers want to fish like the pros they see and read about. Tournament pros may fish pork on occasions when they need a kicker or when fun fishing targeting big bass off camera.
Big bass prefer the natural taste, texture and movement of a good pork trailer and that is the only reason to fish a real jig and pig.

I never underestimate the old style baits.They still work and sometimes oldschool bait can be the ticket.

What I like about using pork trailers is almost no one else still uses them and I still catch my biggest fish each year on them.

Pork trailers may be considered old school when used on lures like spinnerbaits but it's not when used for a jig trailer. Pork strips, ounce called bass strips, have gone by the wayside and that is a shame. There is a whole generation of bass anglers who have never used pork strips on spinnerbaits, they are fantastic. The northern pike anglers may still use them because they work and are durable.
The pork jig trailer has been set aside for winter or cold water use and there isn't any reason why, they work great year around. Cold water affects soft plastics somewhat, not pork it swims good in all water temperatures.
There is no doubt that Pork jig trailers will have the same fate as the pork strip, only 1 supplier is still offering pork today.

I use to love the Uncle Josh Hank Parker pro cut pork frog, it use to be the only thing I would jig fish with however over the years I have totally went away from using pork trailers. The plastic trailers are so good now I don't really see a reason or an advantage to using pork. I also like the fact I don't have to deal with pork drying out when your not using it or having to take it off the hook at the end of the day.

I make sure I have a white Uncle Josh on any jig I use when striper fishing. One plus is that you don't have to worry about slippage or tearing so it will last for a good long time.

Never used it. Need to give pork a try. I guess with all the other plastic I have, its just the natural thing for me to reach for.

I've used pork rinds for years. One problem is that they will sometimes go bad if they have sat for a few years. So I change out the liquid in the bottle with crawfish sent. making sure to use water saluble attractant. the oil based attractants tend to go bad. Hence the fish won't bite it from the bad scent.Agreed that you have to keep the bait moist and it is a pain to get off the hook. I mostly use them in cold water applications as you don't want much action from the bait anyway and use plastics in warmer water with more action.
