This one aint a secret and Ive posted it places before. Stinks but makes a real good base as is or with additives. 1lb cheap greasy hamburger, aged in the sun one day minimum, 2 or 3 days is better and 4oz 8oz. limburger cheese. Mix together well. Wear rubber gloves etc to bait up. Too thin mix flour, cattail fluff etc in. Too thick use corn syrup, tomato juice etc even water. We used this some also in hoop nets and cat baskets. It really has staying/calling power. Ive seen it clean out fishing holes quick in lakes etc. Puts out a great scent trail/area. Use like doughballs(thicker) or dipbait (thinner).
Sounds like a good bait
try mixing wheaties with the hamburg instead of flour.
I like flour for alot of thickeners for bait etc, its cheaper and Im cheap, lol. I dont know the last time I seen a box of Wheaties in our huse. Wife does like all thsoe cardboard tasting cereals, life etc. I have used generic corn flakes etc but the flour is traditional.
