Reader Tips: Twizzler Teasers

I will never go cod fishing or any kind of bottomfishing again without a pack of Twizzlers.

On a recent cod fishing trip, I was picking away at cod but noticed another angler bailing fish at a much better clip: The only difference was he was using a pink skirt on his high-low clam-baited rig. I didn’t have any pink skirts in my box, so I cut one of the red Twizzlers I’d brought as a snack in half and slipped my leader and hook shank through the center of it. My catch ratio instantly increased! I will never go cod fishing or any kind of bottomfishing again without a pack of Twizzlers. They make excellent, durable, cheap attractors.
