A guy told me about having luck with using deer meat for bait. I killed one last weekend and over this recent weekend I gave it a shot and it does work. Caught several good eating sized blues on it. Im not sure if it’s just because it’s the time of year or just something different, but it worked so I’m going to keep using it and be neat to see with more time using it will bigger cats eat it as well. I was always skeptical of chicken as bait but catfish Dave proved that it can be used with success and not just for dink fish. I’m sure it all depends on time of year and conditions but it’s just one more option to have on the days I have trouble catching bait. Just thought I’d share my experience.
