He catches several nice ones but you have to hang in there for 15 minutes. Even he wasn't expecting this. EDIT: I messed this up at first. Pretty sure he uses strawberry jello. Sorry
Nice Fish. I wish I could catch them on chicken like that. I usually have some chicken with me in case I don't get much fresh bait. Still even with channel catfish, I catch more on some type of natural bait like shad or bluegill than I do on the chicken.
If you read between the lines with all the rods and reels that he has, he is getting them for free to try out and give advertising. I don't blame him for doing it as we all probably wouldn't turn down free gear. LOL.I looked into the "Ancient Mariner" reels he was pumping on one of his videos.
Honestly, they look like a Kast Kings with a different paint job. I am guessing that is exactly what they are.
I am still suspicious of these Chinese reels. From personal experience with tools, I can say the Chinese quality control is crap. You might get the best piece of equipment ever in one box and the next box is a total and complete piece of junk.
I so want them to be good but I have just read too many reviews that have bad things to say. When you have 330 comments and 84 of them are very bad....that is not a good ratio
I watched Dieter’s video on YouTube. So, I tried it... several times. Nothing.That is my thoughts also Craig. No doubt chicken will catch fish. And I think Kool-aid might help. Or maybe Garlic powder. But I think natural baits are the better go to baits. If you have trouble getting natural fresh baits then CHICKEN it is.
And every once in a while when you cast out there is a chance you will land the bait right on a big cats nose. So a big cat caught on chicken is bound to happen occasionally.
tight lines all.
Yes, I think natural is better if you can. I have had good luck with nightcrawlers. Only issue with them is if you are dragging, they tend to come off the hook easy. Nice thing is they are readily available bait.I watched Dieter’s video on YouTube. So, I tried it... several times. Nothing.
I read that cats like licorice and that they sometimes bite on fermented fruit bits.
So, licorice (anise seed oil) + fermentation (alcohol), so (don’t laugh), I cut a chicken breast into squares, put the in a tupperware container, added a shot of Lucid absinthe ( 134 proof, strong licorice scent and flavor).
Like I have said in other posts, I have had chicken liver, chicken hearts, shrimp, various dough baits, minnows and goldfish in the water. What have I caught my biggest cats on? Nightcrawlers!!
I’ve heard people say that the best bait is whatever is likely to be in their environment, naturally.
So... this year, that’s what well serve them.
Smaller fish (baitfish, cut fish, etc) and bugs of various species.
