    I recently purchased a case of Danny King blood, what a HUGE disappointment. It's definitely not the same stuff I purchased when DK himself owned the company, which I've heard he doesn't anymore.
    The "good stuff" was very dark red, and smelled sweet. When I opened a bucket of the "new stuff" it varied from white to light pink, and smells sour. It definitely is not the same recipe. Any DK users that have their doubts, I have three unopened gallon containers I'm willing to let go, VERY reasonably priced, PM me:roll_eyes:. I've been fishing it for over a month now and have had only one little bite. Before I'd order any, I'd check with some one who has recently purchased some of the "new" stuff.
    We had very good success with it before the "new recipe", hope this helps someone save their money.
    I'm sure long time DK users will be able to comment on what I've said.
    PS: I believe the new producer of this "stuff" is the same outfit that "publishes" the Catfish Gold magizine, when they get around to it?????

    You are correct, Danny does not own the company any longer and has not for a few years. From what I have heard is that Danny paid the company a vist and is trying to get them back on track. If this is true I do not know but it is what I have heard through the Texas grapevine. I also heard that if you call the company that makes DK and tell them of the issue that will exchange the bad batch of bait with new bait.

    Tim, thanks for the info, I'll give it a try, AGAIN, I've called, but all I get is a message saying their mailbox is full?
    Now that they are no longer a BOC sponsor, or at least I couldn't find them here, I don't know where to contact them.

    Thanks for the Heads Up. This is something we should alll be aware of. Let the board know if they correct this problem and take care of the bad bait.

    I've got small containers of the original, blood and garlic, personally will not buy again, debating on letting the trash men have it. NEVER had as much as a nibble on it.

    Tim, no, it was the one posted on the receipt I received. I sent them an email to the DK address where you place your order, it was returned saying that address had permanent fatal errors.
    I called the number you posted, I received a message to leave a message for "Richard", I'll try it tomorrow and see what happens, maybe I can find out what happened to my Catfish Gold subscription at the same time.
    Thanks for the info.

    I just sent you a PM with more information. We have had this discussion on a Texas Fishing Site I am on. I do not what to post the links here as I do not want any to get upset. Keep calling them. Good Luck.

    That is true Shane. I think December was my last issue I received. Then they were happy to keep everyone's money and not give what was paid for or return of funds.

    I know some that have turned the company into the BBB and recommend others to do the same. It is nothing more than a scam now. They still will accept money for the magazine but you will never receive it.

    I say trash his credit as a businessman.
