I was feeling lazy tonight and decided to do a high school science fair project. I went down to a spot on the verde up here in Cottonwood to see what catches more channels, dough or dip. I had two poles with two hooks on each. One hook with dough and one with dip. Long story short the dip outfished the dough 3 channels to 0. The dip also got me one big ole extremely peeved softshell turtle. The channels were nice too no real dinks, two at 3# and one at about a pound and a half. Perfect eating size if I would have felt like cleaning fish!! I hate to use any of the stuff but was always curious about it.
