    Any willing to put one together and do the testing of it. I already have the idea for the base mix.

    It will be a cheap simple easy to make bait. just want someone who would like to add there own touch to it also.

    All i ask is do not post how it's made or whats init. untill it is done being made and has been tested.

    Please PM me if you have interest and so i can let you know the base mix to start with.

    Thanks to any who are willing.

    I am curious about this, are you making a "stink-bait" or a punch type bait, and what species are you targeting with it?

    Glad to see you have interest in making bait. when it's done i will most likely target channels withit.

    Just waiting to hear back from the one whos going to put it together and test it. if all gos well i will make it and see how well it does in my area.

    But the person is going to be busy the next few days. so may be alittle.

    I will say i think the bait would be best used with looper rigs.

    Thanks again for having interest.

    Well i been trying the base mix idea i had not anyone as i know has used it before. i have fond it very hard to work with and still keep it as thick as i would like to without using flour.

    So i think im going to throw my idea for the base mix out the window. i am up for base mix ideas that will hold thick.

    Just a thought:
    If your looking for something to make it thick and hold togeather try some
    cat-tails. Don't know the proper name for them. They grow in wet areas
    here in Arkansas. Get the cigar shaped tops and fuzz them out and mix the fuzz with your base product. It wont effect your bait taste and it will sure hold togeather. I use it with cheese. Just warm up the cheese and stir in the fuzz if an let it cool. Pinch off a chunk and mash it on the hook. It works. (taterpicker)
