Has anyone every put chicken necks in clam bags and does it work?

I like using CN because they're cheap and have always worked for me but in the later months of the season, the sooks move in to my area and chew up my baits within an hour.

I trotline  from a kayak, so it's not really easy for my to pull up and re-bait.

I only run 300' and already have the clam bags. So just trying to figure out if this is a good solution or not.

Thanks for your help guys!

That's an interesting question. I don't use bags but have been thinking about trying a few with cut up white perch in them. Comm told me late last year he was using perch in bags and doing well.

 The only down side to perch in clam bags is unbaiting is a PIA doe to bones and fins. I the fall cn in bags may holn back the sooks, never thought of that but i would worry they would tear up the bags . why not try clams in clam bags. the amount of clams for 300 ft of line would be nil if you bait every 10 to 12 ft like most comms.

I use local and convenient bait and grocery stores for my supplies. Never know when Im going to get the chance to go so Im always last minute getting bait.

Of course I've used clam in bags before but , CN are cheap and work for me. Cost almost triples for me with clams. I'm sure you may get them cheaper, Everyone has a guy.

Razor Clams - $14.00 gallon = 300'
CN - 4lbs ($.99 lb) = 300'

 The comm told me it was the perch body he cut up, didn't use the head. Sounded odd, but worth a try if it catches crabs.  So I'll buy some bags and give it a shot, really nothing to lose. I'll also try CN's just for experimenting. Nothing wrong with doing something different.

 Last year I cut up the carcass of a rockfish to use in my perfectionist rings. The pieces were good sized and caught some in the late fall. I may try again if I catch any rockfish and use smaller cut pieces after seeing the thread about CN's being small that caught more crabs.
