    My father-in-law paid 50.00 for this recipe in the mid 1940's
    times were hard but he saw a man catching a lot of fish with it,
    and buged him till he sold him the recipe. We have used it sence.

    saine a couple gallons of minnows, lay them out on old window
    screens, for about 3 days to dry. put screens on top of them also
    or the flies will carry them off. grind up the minnows in an old meat grinder
    into 1 pint jars, put the lid on and refrig. overnight.
    then add 1 spoon of anise oil, 1/4 spoon bananna oil.
    mix it good, use it like dough bait on a #6 trible hook.

    we use to buy minnows already ground up in Quanah, Texas
    already in jars and frozen. but thats been years ago.
    it's a lot of work but well worth it.
    thicken it with grits if too runny

    I used to buy the heck out of the Quanah bait and then we got to making it
    ourselves almost like your receipe. I guess it has been nearly 15 years ago I
    stopped using it. It was a chore here in the TX Panhandle finding enough minnows to make it and Quanah was a long ways off. Thanks for reminding me
    of it. We fished in Rogers Mills County OK in a bunch of the small lakes and ponds and done very well with it.
    I had a jug of it in my old pickup one summer day behind the seat and it blew
    up. I almost passed out when I opened the door. Tried everything to get the smell out and finally just replaced the seat.

    Chuck, please try this recipe at your house, not mine.:bad_smelly:

    I once saw a post that recommended using pieces of pantyhose to hold dough balls together. It might be good for this recipe too.
