Sponge Bath for Bucktails

I cut up a kitchen sponge into 1/2" cubes and soak them in crab oil or fish oil. When I'm ready to fish, I put an oil-impregnated cube on the hook of my bucktail jig and slide it up the shank so it sits right behind the jighead. It gives me the effectiveness of natural-bait scent with the durability of an artificial. - Mike Carey, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
