Going camping along the river this weekend - probably sunday to tuesday or something. I've never made a chum before so this'll be my first attempt. So far my plan is to take a 2 liter bottle and add: 1 can of tuna fish. 2 cups of dry dog food 1 cup of dry cat food (scraps!) 5 big spoons of minced garlic - any funky leftovers I can find in the fridge When I get there I'll burn some small holes in the bottle, tie it to a tree and toss it in the water. Should be there around 3 PM. Plenty of time for that scent to roll down stream a few miles before dark. My recipe sound OK? I'm hunting channels - I dunno if they even have flathead or blues in the potomac river?!
