    Can someone help me locate some garlic oil? I use it to thin my Sonny's stink bait when it's cool. I live in southeast Iowa & can't seem to locate any now. The last I bought I found at Big Lots,but they very rarely ever restock an item. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Gordhawk

    If you can't find it, try using a mixture of peanut oil and garlic juice. Both are usually available in the grocery store.

    You might try garlic flavored olive oil. It might work for you.

    Thanks guys for your input.Jerry, do you know what the ratio of peanut oil to garlic juice would be? I don't think I've ever seen garlic juice in the supermarkets around where I live. I'll have to look closer next time I go to the market shopping. Thanks,Gordhawk

    I don't use it for anything, but I've definitely seen little squeeze bottles of garlic juice in some stores. How much? I really couldn't say. But I'd keep adding garlic till the garlic smell was extremely strong. When I put garlic powder on chicken livers for curing, I put enough on that it would make them inedible.

    I have used the stuff for years. Its really strong. I find it at both Dillon(Kroger) and wallyworld. A little goes along ways, believe me. I use it when I make party mix instead of powder. Its so much stronger that I would mix it slowly till you get the intensity you desire.

    Peanut oil, or olive oil. Well, I've seen a number of posts indicating that catfish are attracted to peanuts and peanut butter; don't remember ever reading a post about them being attracted to olives.

    LOL...They also like;spaghetti, linguine,and spicy spicy meatballs.
    Garlic flavored olive oil will give him the garlic flavor he wants and help with the cold whether consistency that he needs.

    Sounds reasonable. For those that don't know, the proper way to cook those Italian catfish is to mix cornmeal and grated parmesan cheese 50/50 and roll your fillet in that before cooking. If you prefer to use some other hard grated cheese instead of parmesan, that will work just fine.

    Why not make your own garlic oil? Take cooking oil "Your choice" & add fresh garlic cloves to the oil,heat it slowly until the garlic starts to release it's oil,you want it to get good and warm not boiling. Let cool then pour into a glass bottle leave the garlic cloves in the oil,it will last forever and is much cheaper then buying garlic oil. I made tons of it when I was a cook years back.

    RamRod, you use the olive oil to eat with sardines. Open a can of sardines and dump them into a shallow bowl. Pour about a quarter cup of olive oil over them. Put cheese and white bread alongside the bowl of sardines. Now, fold a slice of bread in half and dunk it in the olive oil; take a small bite of sardine, a small bite of cheese, and a small bite of the oil-soaked bread. Enjoy. Yum, yum! Breakfast of Champions!

    Swampy,
    How many cloves of garlic would you put in a gallon of oil? Also you said to just get the oil good & hot,not boil it,right? Thanks alot for the info,sounds like a good way for me to get some garlic oil at a lot cheaper price than the premixed garlic oil. Thanks again, Gordhawk

    Well it depends on how strong you want the oil to be. I used 3-4 bulbs depending on size per qt. of oil for cooking. You probably want it stronger for mixing with bait. The good thing about making your own like this is that you can make it as strong or as mild as you want. You want to get it hot,but do not fry the garlic.
