    I work at a grain elevator and ther is always stinky rotten corn or beans or feed to be cleaned up. right now we have a basement full of gooy rotten black soybeans and i think if i put it in a bucket with a lid and drill holes in the lid and sink it, it would be exelent chum.

    It might be good, but Dodge 4X4 and me came up with the perfect chum and drift sock combination a while back.

    Can't let on about it yet, but in theory, it's gotta be a winner:lol:

    If it's not fully fermented then add some brewers yeast or beer and let it set out for a while.If it's past that stage, just use it . It will definitely work. Work like a magnet. Will draw the fish from all over.

    dont know about chumming but if you have a car wash around you can pick up 5 gallon buckets with lids for little or nothing.

    You can go to your local neighborhood applebee's or TGIFriday's or whatever resteraunt is close, they get pickles in 5 gal buckets, just ask if they can save them for you to pick up later. I worked at Applebee's for a yr and took home a truck load of'em. 3 a week, plus bleach jugs by th dozen. for my chum I use maze, corn, and laying mesh, grits, oatmeal an beer. grits an oatmeal I get from th resteraunt I work for now. ferment that mixture for 4 weeks, BOOM!!, u cant keep th kitties away. I 5 gal bucket lats up to 8 weeks, but I drop fresh every 6. all year long.

    I'll put my "Chum" against yours any day.Mines 5'3",Brunnette and built like a Victorias Secrets model.Best of all she comes with her own containers also obtained from Victorias Secrets!!!!:big_smile::lol:No need to get pickle containers from Applebees.:eek:oooh::smile2:Trust me I really dont care if the fish are biting at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    PS ;She also makes a mean Moquito and believes in plying men with liquor so she can take advantage of them.

    find a restuarant that uses a lot of pickles, like a burger place. they will have a lot of buckets with lids. i get mine from a bar b q joint. also a hospital or somewhere that washes a lot will have soap buckets with lids.

    Any one who does a lot of contracting should have a bunch of 5 gal buckets. You can get paint, dry wall paint, and other things in those big buckets; its cheaper that way too.

    One word of advise. If you transport it to your fishing spot put a lid on it that will NOT come off if tipped over. I had mine in the back of the truck when i had to hit the brakes real hard. Now i have a truck that even the homeless people complain about. My neighbor really complains a lot about the smell but i don't like him anyway.
