    wat kinda bait can i make with some old hamburger?
     
  2. You could actually do a lot with hamburger.
    You could make a dough ball out of it using different substances and chemicals.
    You could add anise oil or garlic salt to stinkin it up a bit.
    Just a few suggestions.

    Mix it with some cheese or brains. If you mix up something that doesn't want to stay on the hook, mix in some cattail fuzz.

    I have a recipe for ya'. I used to use it as a kid fishing in paylakes.(shhhhh do'nt tell anyone) I got it from an old colored guy that caught big ones all the time.
    Ingredients : Hamburger, Chicken Livers, Cream cheese, Oatmeal
    I put a tub of chicken livers in a blender and chop em up into almost liquid form, add them to about a pound or so of hamburger meat. then add a couple of boxes of cream cheese and then add the oatmeal. try to leave the mixture a little too soft to use as it will cure in the refridgerator. If you add too much oatmeal it will dry out and be too hard to use. If it's a little soft add some shredded cotton, or even cattails at the fishing spot. I have a buddy that swears by adding some anise oil, another that uses garlic. but, the basic ingredients are the same as listed above. I dont use much in the way of prepared baits anymore. but, I caught a lot of fish on hamburger when I was using it.

    cotton balls work real well for holding your bait together also
