    NOTE : THIS TAKE A FEW DAYS TO GET REALLY STINKY!

    ITEMS YOU WILL NEED, AND WHERE TO GET THEM :
    1. Limburger Cheese or similar stinky cheese (1 carton – ¼ pound is plenty) You can find this in the cheese section of your grocery store. You only need a small amount due to the powerful smell this cheese has.
    2. Ground Hamburger Meat (1/2 pound – uncooked "raw")
    3. Regular Corn Flakes (For thickness) Add more corn flakes to make the bait thicker if needed.
    4. Beer (of any choice 1/2 can) Catfish don’t care what brand, or if it is Lite, Bud, Coors, etc.
    5. Garlic Powder
    6. Chicken Liver Blood (1 container of only the blood – 2 pints) You can find this buy going to the meat section of your grocery store, and buy a couple of pints of chicken livers and drain them for the blood.
    7. (Secret Ingredient) Longcut copenhagen (1 pouch) This can be found in most any tobacco section of a grocery store or convenience store.

    LET'S MIX IT TOGETHER :
    1. Grab a large bowl for mixing
    2. Mix Limburger cheese and ground hamburger meat together.
    3. Add Garlic powder (just enough to cover the top of the meat mixture – sprinkle over the entire surface) and then add beer.
    4. Add the chicken liver blood
    5. Empty the pouch of copenhagen into the bowl.
    6. Add the cornflakes and mix together to a good thickness (this will usually take 1/4 of the box of cornflakes) If a thicker mixture is needed just add more cornflakes.
    7. Put in a bowl or can with a lid. I use big coffee cans with lid sealed good.
    8. Set away for 2-3 days. I set it out in the sun out on my back porch.
    9. Keep this smelly mixture in the sealed can in the refrigerator for a few weeks. Keeping in mind that some of the ingredients will continue to spoil and become really smelly. And most of all, don’t open the lid inside the house!:crazy::0a26::0a26:

    Great idea! Get them to chew on that Copenhagen for a while, and it'll give you plenty of time to set the hook. :smile2:

    No joke - we use to bow hunt bear up in Canada and this product called 10 DEAD HORSES, was used back in the late 60's when the campers in Yellowstone were getting violated by bears coming into camping area's. Their own stupidity by the way. But the park service trapped and shipped the bears out - the ones that remained that were harder to catch - this product was used in the bear traps.
    It came in a can - that had another can sealed inside of it. Inside the second can were 2 plastic bottle and a pair of high quality rubber gloves. You would take meat cuttings and put this is 5 gallon buckets and use only droplets of this product and put the lids on. In no less than a couple days you had maggots and you did not want to breath any of the smell. It was god aweful. The product inhanced bacteria and was putrified fat.

    We use to use tad bits of this for bow hunting carp - they would swarm an area that was baited with this.
