Belly strips are deadly when trolled offshore. They are durable, feel natural and move like baitfish. The only drawback is the time required to catch the baits and rig the strips. Baitmasters now offers a version of a belly strip that’s made from pigskin. The pork rind strips have all of the advantages of natural belly strips and might even be more durable than the real thing. Now it’s easy to head offshore with a stockpile of strips ready to rig and fish. Pork rind strips are 8 inches long and are available unrigged for $15 for a pack of five or prerigged for $7.50 each.
