A German lure maker called Fresh Bait recently posted a video about their new biodegradable, edible soft-plastic lures made purely from an organic, protein-rich gelatin. I was going to post that video, but then I found this one. The same company sells kits to make these maggot-filled gel balls. They’re intended for carp, but I bet a bruiser brown or steelhead would slurp one up faster than my dog lunges for a fallen Dorito crumb. On another note, is that not the creepiest, most alien-like bait you’ve ever seen? Looks like something Ellen Ripley would have torched with a flame thrower.
