I've several jars of old catfish bait. In an effort to use it up ,probably cause I'm too cheap to throw it away, I'm wondering about making my own version of the bait by making it into bait dumplings. Why dumplings? Cause they are just basicly boiled flour and water and pretty tough. Tough enough to stay on the hook longer? Dunno.But it seems like a good idea for trot line bait.I'm pretty sure it will stay on the hook longer than doughballs and longer than preformed bait.
What I'm lookin for is a dumpling recipe that has added ingregients in it.
One thats interesting is a bacon flavored recipe. It has just 5 tablespoons of extra flavor enhansing ingredients.
Anyone ever tried dumplings for bait?
