    Hey brothers,
    I have a family member in Jefferson City, Mo. and he is in desperate need of some cottonseed slabs for his trotlines and he can't find any in that area, can anyof the brothers here help find some for him ?? He has been looking in his area for about 10 or 15 lbs of it. He is not computer literate so I told him I would check with you brothers that might be in that area. If you want you can PM me or just post it in here.
    I need to know something pretty quick if you can.
    Thanks a bunch

    Do you have a site for them? I tried a quick search and didn't come up with anyone having cottonseed slabs or cakes.

    I don't think it is on their website, but it is in the stores from who I talked to at the store.

    Commercial fishermen bait their nets with it. A slab will take a week to melt.
    Oldtime trotline bait for carp, grass carp, buffalo & channels. Rarely used these days due to lack of availibility. Not practical for rod & reel--takes long time to start dissolving.:p

    Wow, thanks, I'm thinking a cake in a burlap bag dropped off the end of my dock with a string for retrieval should bring in the cats. Thanks for the site link lets hope others support it.

    now do you cut up smaller peices and put on your hooks? or are the cakes just to attract fish to the trottlines?
