    Default Beef Melt 'aka' Cow Spleen -Tried It?

    I Just used beef melt for the first time and I believe it may be the best channel cat bait i've seen. I had to request it from the butcher because it is worthless for anything but fishing and gets tossed out. Its hard to describe but it is a very bloody mass with thick skin on it. Anyone tried it?

    I'm with Les, it is the best crawdad bait I've ever used. Tried some the other day in a crawdad trap and they were all over it. Sorry, but I've not had any success with it for the cats.

    Anybody got a picture of one? After the comments here I'm thinking of maybe keeping the spleens of the deer I kill this year and try them for crawfish bait next year. I'll just have to figure out which is the spleen.

    Im sorry I was wrong it is a cows pancreas.

    I will post up some pics when I get more next week. It looks like a gigantic cow tongue. Im sure there are better baits out there. Ive always used fresh cut shad and it performs well also.

    on another note
    I'm going to buy 4 dozen worms, 2 containers of livers, beef blood, a jar of shad sides, and a jar of shad guts put it al in a blender until it is almost liquified, then wrap it in cheesecloth and try that. :big_smile:

    Oh - beef melt is the pancreas. Now I just need to figure out which deer organ is the pancreas - not the spleen.

    Nope, Beef Melt is Beef Spleen--positive, I use it often for crabbing.

    Well, I'm just going by what was written in this thread. Doing a Google search reveals the same thing (some think it's spleen, some think it's pancreas).

    This document says pancreas: http://www.lsuagcenter.com/NR/rdonly...0/chapter8.pdf
    Basically the same document, different source:http://srac.tamu.edu/tmppdfs/645472-...348133a6172534

    This is the only thing I found from what should be a reliable source that says what it is. Most everything else is from other message boards.
