    They look and smell like #!@^, who knows? Good point you have but i never use it. I prefer to catch my bait and either cut it or use live.

    Most have a cheese base. Some have blood mixed in and some even uses peanut butter.

    I know that when I make my mixture up, I put cotton seed meal in it which turns it brown.
