I was looking for something to use instead of punch bait and cut bait for cats, because I cant always get good cut shad or cut bait, and punch bait works great but STINKS! anyways, I tried a strip of chamois, soaked in menhaden oil. so far it seems the cats like it. I am wondering if a big strip soaked in the oil then drifted might work for big blues? I dont have access to a lake where I can try it myself right now, maybe someone else would give it a try for me and let me know if it works? the chamois really soaks up the oil and puts out a lot of scent in the water as evidenced by the oil slick it produces. it really looks like something big cat would taste!
