    Remove crust from bread, bake in oven at 250F until rock hard, closly watching for any burning, crumble and crush crumbs, then sift till fine. Mix bread crumbs in bowl with philly cream cheese, stir in baking soda, add water and knead to a ball. Bait should be the consistency of Play-Dough. You can add food color to dye the dough any color desired, and for added flavor appeal add garlicsalt or anise oil.

    Every time I would spend 3.50 for a small jar of powerbait I would try to make some but because it wouldn't float I would not use it. I wish I could find an aditive that would make it float but not poluite.

    Maybe you can try a small marshmallow above the hook to make it float. I know ppl who use a miniature marshmallow above the treble hook, then powerbait or whatever on the hook itself.

    Yeah marshmellows work well, I've had luck off a small marshmellow and then a couple pieces of corn on a hook. As far as a homemade bait though, I think i'll just stick to powerbait lol.

    I had a lady on the Little Red River swear by Juicy Fruit gum. Chew it up and put a piece on the hook.
