    I saw a post by Capt. Wayne on the Catfish Lounge. The recipe he gave for Jello Bait is :

    2 cups of water, 1 cup flour 1 cup white cornmeal, 1 package strawberry/banana jello, vanilla extract. Mix jello in water and bring to a hard boil. Reduce heat and add cornmeal and flour and continue stirring until thick. Add three drops of vanilla extract and cover pot with a lid and allow to cool to room temperature. When cool, roll into a ball, wrap with plastic wrap and store in refrigerator until ready to use.

    It was suggested by several others that you could add chicken liver or Wheaties to the mix.

    I must admit that I have not tried this.
