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.
