Dinkbuster, I have a book where a guy put a couple carp in a tank and introduced different amino acids. According to his results, the l-arginine had no results at all. But, the l-lysene put the carp in a feeding frenzy trying to eat everything in the tank. Don't know though if it would have the same effects on catfish, but I'd think it's worth a try.

I think that I will have to go along with the Scientific study on this one. Why venture a guess when the study has been done.
Mike,Rat is this l-lysene available over the counter,and is it expensive? maybe you could put a pill down a bluegills throat?

L-Lysine is available over the counter, and it isn't expensive. It's the greatest thing in the world for a fever blister, or, if you have them frequently, you can take L-Lysine on a regular basis to prevent the fever blisters. My wife does that; I only take the stuff when I'm starting to get a fever blister. I'll definitely have to think up some way to test the stuff.

Last Point of interest
It seems that the larger a fish becomes, as it grows older, the more selective its diet becomes. While the smaller or more juvenile fish are true opportunists, the older a fish becomes, the more selective they become in their diet. Small catfish can be easily caught on a number of bait. But as these same catfish age, they appear to become far more predatory in nature, eating live aquatic life varying from mice through coots, crawfish, frogs, snakes, and my all time favorite, all members of the sunfish family. For some who are avid Bass fishermen, that means Bass as well. The Yellow cat seems to do this far sooner than the other two large cats, must be that extremely larger mouth they have.

Did not think this thread would get this interesting. but im glad it did alot of good reading. i would like to know the out come of anyone who does the test.
Geting down to the point of what really is in a bait that draws catfish is fun.
So what im wondering now is if some of that stuff was got and crushed and made just wet enuff to form bait size blocks of it with hooks installed init and let dry back hard. and use just it as a bait or as a fast chum depending on how well it comes apart in the water.
