    Hey folks...I want to give you a tip on chumming bait for cast-netting.

    This takes a little preparation, but is worth the time.



    First, find a spot with clay dirt...wet or damp works best.

    shovel about half of a 5 gallon bucket full.

    next, you will need some ground up dog food, rabbit food, or livestock meal.

    make softball size balls out of the clay...then neade the meal or ground up food into the ball of clay...be liberal, but maintain a consistancy to keep the clay ball in tact. If neccessary, add a little water to keep the ball compact.

    toss the balls into the water where you want to cast your net. Wait a few minutes before casting. The baitfish will be attracted by the food floating off the clay ball. This will last for sometime depending on the current.

    this also works for chumming catfish or carp...

    Hope this helps :)
