And dont say " on a bull"
Looking for bull lips in the Baltimore area.
Also, if I store them in a closed bucket, in a brine, how long can I keep them?
There's a butcher shop in Catonsville, JW Trueth & sons that carries them.
Address: 328 Oella Ave, Baltimore, MD 21228
Phone: (410) 465-4650
I just put my line in a 5 gallon bucket and stick it in the freezer. It's a lot less hassle that salting them down. Just pull the bucket out of the freezer the night before. I also find it easier to cut the lips while the're still frozen.

Are bull lips very expensive
Thanks for the addy DK, I'll give them a call today.
Swamp, my father in law used them, he had good luck with them down on the little choptank. Not sure if they had a " breakin period". I know they lasted a good while so I figured I'd give them a try
you can get bull lips at Warren Bait Box....B & A blvd...glen burnie
Warrens is out, Trueth's has them, 20Ilbs for $25
I tried them a few years back and they do work pretty well...I got mine at Trueths....problem is, they come whole and have to be cut up....They last longer that necks, but they cost 3 times as much...I go to Richardson's on Ebeneezer road..Necks 40 pounds for $17, and most of the necks are big enough to make at least 2 baits each...I get 3 out of some...
And if you are really lucky you will get a chicken head still attached to one or 2...
I've been using them for many years. I buy them at BK MILLERS in Clinton. $23 for 20#. I can bait mt 1200ft. line 3 times w/ 20#, prob. more if you cut smaller pieces. Good thing about them is they're too tough for the crabs to chew off, and you can use them at least 3 times without rebaiting. I keep the baited line in a 5 gal. bucket in the freezer. Take em out the night before and fill the bucket w/ water, ready to go in the am. George
