Anyone use chum to bank fish? My uncle use to swear by it. He would chop up shad and put it in a burlap sack til it was near full with a rock in it. Tie it off then slice a few holes in it and put it out a little upstream so the scent would disperse downstream. He caught fish when others nearby had poor luck. For channels he would chop up dead chickens from his con agra commercial operation and sink them in a bag on Bull shoals. One night a fish ate the whole bag nearly capsizing the boat. But did he ever catch fish. I am thinking about trying the shad thing on the Arkansas river this summer with old freezer skips added for a little extra zip. Anyone try this before or just a plain old "chumpot"? Just checking for some input from you all.
