any of you guys chum wen lookin for big cats? if so wats some good things to use?
i thought about it .. but i dont fish for channels much and i dont think that chuming when using live bait for flatheads would work great ... but if ya try it tell us how ya do.
I have done it before but can't say it actually made a difference...
I never chum they only have my bait as a meal option.
Welcome to the BOC its good to have you aboard, if i was you I would check inside the BOC library they have some really good tips in there and you can find some stuff in there about chumming.
I use canned tuna sounds crazy but it works! :wink:I take the can and poke little holes in the top and then throw it out in the water but it only works good in still water.
I havent tried chumming yet. I usually stick to the fish attractants, usually ones that are oil based. If you are interested in fish attractants YUM makes good oil based sprays.:wink:
Check the articles on chumming in the BOC Library. It works and if used right you can draw the fish to you.
i have chummed before when the family goes and we just want alot of action
I do a smaller version of chumming,... most of my shad/herring are vacuum saved and frozen. Frozen shad chunks are easy to throw pretty far. So, after I cast - I throw about 2-3 frozen chunks fairly near where I casted. That way I don't have the whole place over-saturated with free food (making my bait less desireable) but does get some extra scent in the water near my own bait.
Be sure to check your state regulations before chumming. Some states don't allow it.
