Go to your local butcher/me and ask them if they will make you blood bait. on kill days. If they dont know how tell them if they will do it to airiate the blood of a couple beef you will not need any more than that for one week. You do this by sloshing the blood realy fast while it is hot out of the beef.(2 min at most) When this sloshing occurs air bubbles get into the blood. The blood cuagulates in bubbles and forms a kind of spongy substance. This stays on your hook better and lets off alot more scent/blood than store boughten blood bait. It also makes an awsome chum.
