    ive been making my own for a while and it works pretty good around docks and marinas for eating size channels.
    here it is
    corn flakes
    ground beef
    water
    vanilla extract
    and a little flower
    the flower helps to dry it out and make good dough balls
    you can add alittle velveta cheese if you like
    or substitute blood for the water
    theres no measurement i usually use a handful of each and add enough liquid to make a good dough. you can also catch a few carp with it.
    more cheese and less meet makes good carp bait
    hope this helps

    Nice recipe, I usually always use dough bait.

    Do you have to cook yours in cheesecloth? I'm not crazy about using cheesecloth. I'm currently trying to find a good dough bait recipe that I can cook straight up in a big pot (with no cheesecloth), just like you would cook oatmeal.


    I use a little different concoction. Mine has dried out, ground up shrimp and chicken livers / hearts. With cornmeal, oatmeal and maze.

    Never realy used dough, I think I need to give it a try. Would it be best to use a treble hook as you can but the dough over the shank, come to think of it a treble hook with a spring in the middle would grip the dough pretty good.:roll_eyes:
