I had some luck using raw uncooked strips of pork fat as bait ( fished both under a bobber & on the bottom)

( still hard to get a hook im so i was trying some small sets of treble hooks- but im no longer fishing for them now- sad to say there are none here & we stoped traveling so far to fish now)
