    I've been doing alot of research about chumming and I came up with a plan. I hear you can use everthing from soured milo to cotten seed but what I don't know is the best way to bait a hole. I started on what I am calling chum bombs. Essentially plastic jugs filled with cheap beer and range cubes. The range cubes contain the milo and other stuff and the beer to start the fermentation process. My plan is to sink one or two poked full of holes in a good cat area, with a rope and float still attached to retrieve the jug. How quickly should the kitties respond? I hear some guys saying an hour, others the next day. Anyone out there experts? I'm not asking where your honey hole is, I'm just wanting to help nature and make me a few holes. Thanks.

    DEPENDING ON THE WEATHER AND WATER ABOUT A HOUR TO START AND IT SEEMS TO ONLY HOLD THEM A FEW HOURS AFTER CHUM IS GONE

    i use the chicken scratch & it seems to work pretty quick like 1/2 an hour or so, then throw out more every 30 minutes to an hour when the bite slows!!!!

    When I bait holes I try to bait four different areas. This takes a little time depending on the distance apart. I then return to the first approx 1 hr time. I then fish the first until the bite slows. Then I go to #2 and etc. You can rotate betwenn the four holes for several hours. The fish will continue to replinish all holes. Lets hear how you do it.

    I go to a spot or two and empty a bag of range cubes in a line where I will be throwing my bait. I have a floating jug hook-up already attached by rope to a large weight on the bottom. I go over and attach a hook to the float and fish. It take about 30 min to an hour for the cats to come around. I throw out a coffee can two of cattle cubes if the bite slow down.

    Any idea on how well this would work in a creek? I fish a feeder creek into the Red River that is about 10+ ft deep, slow moving water. And can you use something else besides beer to start the fermentation? I'm afraid if I use cheap beer I'll catch too many locals... haha.

    One of my methods is to, using my personal recipe dough bait, bait a hook, throw it into the area I want to fish then jerk the dough ball off. continue this process for about 15 - 30 minutes the fish will come,,, sometimes it will be a lot of small ones, then the larger ones will show up.

    BTW I think I posted my, personal recipe dough bait, here somewhere, If not I will do so soon

    Heres an idea. use a milk jug with your bait of choice with large holes only half way up so it floats partially submerged and the chum drifts off and down like a slick. this may draw them from further away.
