Watermelons. They are expensive, heavy, bulky, have a short shelf life, but hogs love them.

Otherwise, CORN.

There is a place near Smithville that has best price on corn and it's even cheaper if you bring your own bags and string to tie them shut!

Plain corn... Everything else is just putting more money in someone elses pocket.

At the risk of sounding like I'm just a camp follower, I suggest plain ol' corn.

Corn works great, but it can be better. Put a couple bags of corn in a trashcan and mix it with some old beer and maybe a sunkist or some sort of very sugary soda and let it sit in the sun. Best bait there is. Even better if you add some hog wild in there too.

My lease buddies got their hands on some kind of concoction a friend of theirs made up. Corn, jello, kool aid and something else in a trash can and left it in the sun for 3 years. eek2

It made catfish bait smell like roses. barf One of them touched my neck after he'd washed his hands a dozen times and it still left a residual smell on my neck.

We hunted over after it had been out all day....never saw a hog.

Corn soaked in water with yeast for a couple of days. If you don't have yeast use the cheapest beer you can find

My favorite is just the off brand of Wylers presweetened drink mix, strawberry seem to work best. I just sprinkle it around the mud in the rooting areas. They will tear up the area and actually eat the mud. Cheaper than Hog Wild and easier to carry than a bag of corn.
