    Ok I put a bunch of stuff in the blender including worms, livers, blood, shad sides, shad guts, sardines, hot dogs, dog food, shrimp ect. It is kinda runny so I just wrap it in cheesecloth and use it. Is there a way I can add cheese or something to make it sticky like a dip bait. Also I really want to add rotten soybeans to the mix but I dont know were to get them or how to ferment them. Any help would be greatly appreciated. P.S. my wife is pissed about the blender:tounge_out:

    When I was experimenting with this. I used flour to make it not so runny. It worked, but I just didnt enjoy using it and shad worked better so i only made it once. But flour will make it sticky.

    I use flour or corn starch because I want it sticky. I don't make it very much now since I started using Secret 7.

    Secret 7 works great. Wife won't get mad about blender when you use Secret 7. When I made my dip bait I never used soybeans or cheese. I mixed chicken liver, shad, minnows and chubs with a little salt (Plain). I just blended it up and let it set for a few days then added the flour until I got it to the thickness I wanted.

    LOL, reminds me of my dip bait foray... hog brains, old cheese, shrimp, and flour in my wifes blender. I thought i would never get that greasy crap cleaned out...

    Put it in 2 litre soda bottles and let it ferment in the summer sun a few days...

    When I went fishing, I started to crack open the screw cap, it exploded spewing foul filth all over me. I have a strong stomach, but this was horrid. I jumped in the lake and tried to wash it off. After an hour of trying not to wretch I loaded up and went home to shower. never did catch anything.

    That is funny. :smile2: I like to use just about any kind of cheese that I can get a hold of. I also use cattails or toilet paper to thicken it up. Works pretty good.

    You can get ya a jar of cheez whiz for the cheese... it's mostly already in kind of a liquid form and ya dont' have to melt it down.

    let your mix ferment untill it turns to a foamy mess before you add the flour though. but dont wait too long or it just wont work. in 80 dehree weather it takes about 3 days. once you add the flour it seems to stop rotting. if you do put cheese in i like corn starch instead of flour, if you need to thicken it up more. i have been using those treble hooks with the spring on them. it seems like there barely has to be bait on it and they will hit. Also, i like creek chubs as much as i do shad but goldfish dont work.

    Hi Guys! I like to use Dryer Lent to thicken my bait. Plus all the hair in the lent keeps it on my treble hook better. :cool2:

    Cat Tails and toilet paper do work good. I've tried cotton balls but never could get it right. It's fun, and educational, to make it a couple of times. I found that my bait isn't as good as what I can buy off the shelf. As much as I put into it, the commercially prepared bait is cheaper too.

    I have a friend that makes his own baits and he use hair that he gets from his barber to thicken his baits. I have always used cattails.

    Man I would love to help ya out with the homemade stink bait but all I have ever been able to accomplish is making a mess. I just pour it in the water for chum. The old lady won't let me experiment anymore either. I would end up like the guy who's bait exploded all over him except it would be in the kitchen or garage. I don't have the stomach anyways. Have exploded myself a time or two. Good luck you are going to need it. Have fun!

    The best bait I ever made was just hog or beef brains and cheese mixed half n half. Just cube it up and throw it in a five gallon bucket with a lid with holes in to let gasses excape, and varmints out. After about three days in summer heat, it begins to ferment and bubble up. Stir it down once A day. In about two weeks its done. I always put it in a loose lid container, like a icecream bucket.
