    Many things can be used in the dough of a bait. like powdered cheese, graded sharp chedder cheese, shad oil along with many other things.

    Try using cattail fuzz. Take the brown thingy that looks like a dark brown hot dog, break it apart, and you'll get more fuzz than you'd believe by looking at it. Since the fibers are relatively long, they make the dough/punch bait hold together.

    I try to keep it simple Ronnie. I carry two baby food jars in my gear. One has just plain old flour, the other corn meal. I hate fishing for an hour and my bait starts turning to soup. I make my own bait, ball and dip. I'd never get in my boat without both in my box. Someone else suggested cat tail. I agree 100%, good stuff. If you find your bait won't come out of the jar or can just add a small amount of water that you are fishing in. As far as the cat tail when you find some, pick four or five tops and throw them in a zip lock bag, they last (?) That stuff is tuff to get off the boat too!Don To the world you may be just a person, but to a person you may be the world.

    I've used cat tail for a long time - works great.

    See my thread on - Keep your bait on the hook.
