    alright ive got an all around good bait alittle like doug stanges alright you go to a local pond/lake and catch a carp size dosent matter. scale it and leave the skin on . then filet the meat off. cut into 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch chunks. put in a jar then layer the top of the space in the jar with a couple chicken livers. burrie it under dirt in a place where the sun hits it most of the day .leave it there for a week and then dig it up then its ready to fish i like to spray it with wd-40 so experiment a little if you'd like .thanks for reading

    sounds like a good bait,except for 1 thing.WD-40,that can't be good for the fish or the water.

    what kind of sportsman sprays WD40 on their bait? if your bait is so good, why do need WD40? the chemicals in that stuff are terrible, not to mention this practice is illegal. please don't fish any of the water that i do.

    I read some where that wd40 is fish oil based, I dont use it but you don't have to convince me but you have to convince the enviromental whackos and game wardens. SE YOU ON THE FISHBANK SOMETIME

    i don't care where you heard it, or how well it works. i work with oil and similar chemicals and i can tell you WD40 is flamable, and harmfull to fish. self-justifying it doesn't make it ok. human poo is water soluble, natural, and doesn't poison the fish. you can't even compare the two! and no, it's not fish oil based, it's petroleum based, just like PB blaster.

    I agree with you steve-o. Hey Mudkat, If you liked the taste of WD40 and sprayed it on your peanut butter and jelly sandwich everyday, do you think you would get sick?

    WD40 is pollution when introduced in to a body of water.

    I would like to say thank you for posting that bait recipe. i was checking in my file cabinet of bait recipes.

    Cause alot of them have been used by my family since alittle before the 1700s also for other type fish.

    That is a old timers recipre that was used alot in the 1920s and 30s.

    But please leave out the wd-40. im sorry for whoever it was that got your interest up in using wd-40 but they did get your interest into the wrong area.

    Thats why we are here we are to keep our sport clean and protect it not kill it.

    I'd much prefer to be in the water with a little WD40 than have a 8" Baby Ruth come floating by. LOL. I'd have to check into the WD40 thing myself before putting it on any bait and casting it into the water.

    The bait sounds like a good idea minus the WD40. It is a petroleum based lubricant that has many other uses away from the water. Please don't use this and ruin our fishing waters, if you want to add something else to the bait, go to a health store and buy some fish oil, will probaly work better for you anyhow!

    I know people who use this and I believe those are the kind of people who started the Fish Oil thing.
    WD-40 stands for water displacement - 40th formula.
    All hazardous materials must be reported in the materiel saftey data sheet and a quick check will show it is petroleum based.

    I forgot to mention the WD 40. That just sounds like a bad idea. I know we have far worse in our waters,but that is no reason to polute. I would like to leave something behind for my children and grand children to enjoy. O.k.,that being said lets go cattin!

    I've heard of plenty of sour type baits working without using wd-40. I think I'll stick to using more natural types of bait.

    ive been told it works but im a good sportsman and i dont cheat on the game of catfishing. i think you should stop cuz it doesnt help the fish as good as it helps you. Shoulda kept your mouth shut on that one. no offense but your recipe was good until the wd40

    ive used a bait like that once with out the chicken liver and it does produce some decent catches when nothing else seems tobe working....

    As far as the wd-40 ... a friend of mine paid a $250 fine for having it out of his tackle box beside is bait ...... game warden told him if he seen him use it he would have had a $500 fine and licesne taken for 6 months. They dont put up with that in Ohio...........

    I agree with most of these guys. If it didn't come out of the water...don't put it in the water. I'm sure your bait will work just as well without the WD-40. If everyone said, "A little bit in the river won't hurt." just think about all the little bits that would be in there! It like all the people that think leaving a little bit of trash on the bank won't hurt. Now look around at all the little bits all over the place. The problem is, it won't stay on the banks. It winds up in the river, where you and I fish and swim.
