How do you put ivory soap on a hook? i tried it and it just cracked into little pieces so what do i do… and i just wanted to say catfish love bread.

Ivory soap is a great way to get catfish but you are right, if you don’t put it on the hook right you will have problems. One of the best ways to put it on the hook is to build a bait pouch. You can take a pair of old pantyhose, about 4 x4 inch squares or 4 inch diameter circles.
With a sharp knife or a cheese grater shave your Ivory soap into thin pieces. Put some of it into the pantyhose you are using and bundle up the ends. Twist tightly and wrap a small piece of fishing line there that you can tie into a knot. You can also threat that part through your fishing hook if you would like.
Make sure you don’t overfill the soap though or it will be hard to tie. You can also pre-drill a hole in Ivory soap. Then you can use that to enter into your hook without it cracking.
