Some people have been known to use it yes but in my personal view you will have far better success with the more popular baits.

I much prefer it on a bread roll myself with a good dollop of brown sauce.

I have heard ot the rind being used but I prefer to use more traditional baits as pigs are not really sea dwellers.

Bacon also is a blinding bait for crabs, why not throw out a crab line, then pull it in every now and then and check to see if they are peeling?? Save 50p a pop in the tackle shop

flounders and eels will certainly take bacon rind, as will whiting.
Fish will eat all sorts of stuff that you would not consider to be 'natural' I've caught flounders on sweetcorn, peas and baby carrots ( North Wall Grimsby, there used to be a lot of stuff like that on the beach, washed down from the food factories.)
Worm baits are not always available to those of us who live inland so we need to be a bit more adventurous if we want an impromptu fishing session.
cheese, liver, bread, chicken skin... they all work.

The carp fishermen use banana flavour baits, not a food normally associated with fish !
