    I have been pondering the idea of a new bait and was wanting some opnions on it before i tred it. I have some cheese trimmings, and some left over chicken liver blood from last year. Thinking of mixing this togather to make a paste, and then add some garlic powder or salt, or vannilli to it. stiffin it it with a little cattail or flour to make a dip bait. If any diffrent sugestions or ideas plz let me know and will try it.. thanks Paul


    Good luck and happy fishing:cool2:

    Demolition Man,
    Yes it works, and works very well. Just be sure to add the flour or corn starch to make it nice and thick. I've done alot of testing with different types of dip worms, hooks with sponges, etc..., I'm convinced that looper makes the best hooks for dip baits. Seems like everything else won't keep the bait on long enough for it to be affective. Good luck

    Let me suggest another component that will improve your bait. The Beef tallow or fat trimmings ground through a 3/8" chili plate mixed with your cheese trimmings and blood will improve your catch. It is kind of like that last little bit of worm on the hook when you were a kid fishing for perch. Here you have to talk to the meat market man and he may have to save it for you. Here they charge ten cents a pound. I grind my own but you could probably get them to grind it for you for a reasonable amount. I use an equal weight to the cheese trimmings. It is better after a couple of weeks in the summer sun.

    well got bait made up and finally got to try it out yesterday evening. Had one hard hit on it but with no luck of a hook up. Fish were not biting too good any way, only cought 3 gar and nothing else and they come off trusty ole chicken livers. will try again some time soon i am sure!!!:cool2:

    My personal favorite would be to substitute the chicken blood for KARO SYRUP and instead of Vanilla I would use Big Red soft drink.

    Try hog brains instead of beef. Know a commercial product like that.

    ok here is a report on this bait....I used it in a farm pond last night and had great success with it. When i would get a hit they normally would run like the dickens with it and not let go. Do have to do some more work on it to get it to stay on hook better now think ill thicken it up with some corn meal or flour and try it again

    Interesting. The thread shows two pages, but will only let me look at page one.

    Anyway. If you can find some cattails that still have the seed pod on them, collect them and break them up to mix into your catfish bait to help it stay on the hook. Keep the pods in a ziploc bag so that should one accidentally break, it won't make a big mess. Break up one pod at a time, putting the fuzz into a different ziploc bag One pod makes a lot of fuzz. The seed fibers (fuzz) are fairly long, which makes the bait mixture hold together better than something like dryer lint.

    Sounds like you got it. Another product I know of uses ground up shad and cheese with cattails for dip bait.

    well i made up a new batch yesterday and this time i used blended chicken livers in it and i used the cattails like stated before, but bait was still very wet and wouldnt stay on hook too well so I mixed in some oats and it did better. Fishing was good with it cought 3 nice ones in a lil over an hour yesterday evening. Still neeeds some work on it to stay on hook but Ill try some other things to see if i can get it to work
