ok so we were fishing at clayton lake in clayton new mexico and were catching a bunch of bluegill about 45. Then they stopped biting and we caught about 10 1lb carp all on worms. but I was thinking about fishing for carp cuz the cats were not biting. And was wondering I have a 6 1/2ft bass spinning combo with 10lb line and am using size 6 treble hooks and was thinking about using this recipe that someone put up. Ingredients 3/8 " Cattle Range Pellets (Available in 50 lb Sacks for less than $10.00 at agriicultural feed store. This will last an average fisherman for several seasons. 5 lbs White Flour (Regular) 1 pkg Strawberry Jello (I use large packet, but small will work just as well) Garlic Salt or Powder (Optional) Just sprinkle some in mixture for enhanced bait. Mixing Instructions Fill a 3 lb coffee can with Range Pellets and empty into a 5 gallon bucket. Fill the same coffee can with warm water and empty into the 5 gallon bucket. Let this soak over night. Mash, Mix and Crumble with hands, next morning. Add 3 lb coffee can of White Flour. Add dry pkg of Strawberry jello. Combine and mix everything together well. Goal is to get mixture to form a stiff ball so that it will form around treble hook. If more water is need to soften mixture......just sprinkle mixture with your hands until you get it right. It is very easy to overdo the water. A little goes a long way so just add a little at a time. If mixture needs to be stiffened, add some flour. When the mixture is right, you will be able to form a stiff ball about the size of a quarter or so. Carry some flour with you when you go fishing in case bait needs to be tightened. Mold bait around your treble hook and fish with a loose line. When line begins to tighten set the hook. Keep bait mixture in a sealed container.....1lb ziploc bags work well. Bait can be refrigerated and will keep through the winter. Don't worry if a mold forms on it........it will work good just as well. This could possibly become one of your favorite "go to" baits for eater size channels in hot weather. I am gonna make a batch think i will catch some hawgs?
