    Sounds good. How do you keep it on the hook?

    Seems like with the amount of water and the amount of oil would make the bait right thin.Might want to add alittle cornstarch or cattail fuz to thinkin that alittle more.

    if it comes out thin add a little more flour


    i mold it on real good then wrap a peice of copper wire around it but the wire has to be real thin

    Your a smart little brother. you can always get a looper rig and smash the bait around it and you wont have to wrap it and it stays on very well. just a idea.
