    I'm working a part-time job at a hog plant. Its a pretty nice job. They pay me to hand out bandaids and asprin, and if anything more serious comes up I have to deal with that too. Anyway they can get me buckets upon buckets of large blood clots that they clean out of the heart during the butchering process. This would be the same thing as congelead blood, for bait, wouldn't it? How would you store this?

    Casey you might get a couple of boxes of wheaties and make you up some doughballs out of them then soak them in the blood for a few days.Then you could freeze doughballs in baggies.Wheaties makes real tough doughballs.

    Most of the stuff I've read talks about chicken blood, Casey. Not saying that
    hog's blood is that much different to a catfish. Chicken livers I've had some
    experience with and I wrap them in gauze before I put them on a hook. I wonder if that would work with a glob of congealed hog's blood?

    I make a lot of blood bait but use only beef I have heard that the pork blood will not work as well. Not sure if that is true or not. Would be interested if it works for ya . I have access to both. To bad ya didn't work at the chicken plant ! :smile2::smile2::cool2:

    Are these clots coming from the labor force or the hogs?:roll_eyes::smile2::smile2:. Casey, I've tried pigblood when my beef blood source dried up. Not the same results, for me any way. Just chunk it up and freeze it in a butter dish.

    Does it just not get firm enough? I'll let you know what I find out if I get some. They are just throwing these clots away so it would be great if I could use them.

    put em in the same plastic containers that chicken livers and gizzards come in. it'll be economical and you can thaw it out on the water for chumming.

    Hey Casey I'd be interested in putting some in my soybean buckets for a little extra stink um' added to my chum. I don't know if it would work for blood bait. I do know that Catdaddy shumway puts blood in his chum and he also grinds up fish for chum too.Bass Pro and Cabela's sell saltwater style grinders I'm thinkin' I might try to get one.I've heard of soaking wood chips in blood and chumming rivers with them.

    We used to use beef blood all of the time in lakes. We would just use butter dishes and freeze them. this stuff worked great, but you have to be careful with it, it comes apart really easy. We used to drift with it. We would use little to no weight, maybe a split sopt is all. put a snap swivel on and then take a treble hook and put it up through the blood and then snap it on the snap swivel. Let it freespool until it hits the bottom and drift along with it. The blood would leave a heck of a trail. Make sure you are either holding onto you rod or have it secured in a rod holder, because when they hit, they hit it hard.

    Have used chicken blood alot back when you still could get it but have never tried hog blood.

    Best way to find out is let it set in a 5 gallon bucket for about three day's with a lose lid.Drain off the juice everyday then add some brown sugar,rock salt and some pure anise oil.The more salt you add the tougher it gets.

    Take and put in small containers and freeze with a little juice.

    Save the juice to chum a area you are fishing.

    One of the best rivers I used blood in was at Melvern.Make some up and we can test it out there.:wink:

    If you can get it bring a couple buckets of that stuff to Melvern like Tom
    says. 10 gals of congealed hog's blood ought to wake the cats up and
    bring them out to investigate even if it's a dull day for them. We could
    add that to whatever other chum folks bring and stack the deck in our
    favor. We caught cats at the last gathering; maybe we could make it
    sort of a habit to do so.

    Talk about a part time job. When I visited Kyle today, did he ever have a big surprise for me. Kyle and his brother Todd told me about this job I could have if I wanted it, no strings attached, wouldn't cut into my fishing time either:cool2:. They showed me what I'd be doing, it would be kinda hard to describe, so I took some pictures of what I'd be doing, but won't be able to post them, don't have the hookup I need to transfer the pics to my computer till I get home tomorrow. What's really nice, I'd only have to come to Wichita every month and a half or so to full fill my obligations to keep the job, so I accepted, Lydia was a little apprehensive about it, but I convinced her I could handle it, it's gonna be great, plus I get to come visit and Catfish with Kyle.
