I recently found a new punch bait that is made by an individual rather than a company.He is out of east Texas somewhere and this stuff flat out works! I don't know whats in it,and I dought seriosly he will tell me.But it is definately not your typical minnows and cheese with cattails.Of coarse it smells terrible, but it stays on your hook better than any bait I've ever used! I went out a couple of days ago and had an array of baits from fresh shad to hot dogs and every prepared bait in between. I meas I have a styrofoam cooler full of different baits.I don't like taking the chance that they are biting on something I don't have! After about 3 hrs of fishing and no bites at all ( I mean not even the tapping of bluegill on nightcrawlers) I decided to give the new bait a whirl. What could it hurt right. So after tying on a treble hook I sank it down into this mess of stuff and pulled out this horrible glob of goodness,and threw it out. After hitting the water I fed it line to get it to the bottom,right, I kept feeding and feeding and finally just stopped it and I had on a fish before it hit the bottom a channel cat grab it and was swimming off with it. Wow,after about an hour of fishing I had caught a mess of small fish with 5 nice keepers(if I kept fish that is). You guys really need to try it!
