    Has anyone had any luck with Sonny's Stink Bait?

    (sorry if I posted this in the wrong area, new to this forum)

    Haven't heard of it. Is it a "local" bait. BTW welcome to the forums Reg!

    I have never used sonnys stink bait, but im not a stinkbait fisherman ive tried many different types but have never done very well at all, just little fish. nothing beats a freshly cut bluegill in my opinion.:wink:

    Reg Welcome to the BOC. Sonny's makes some of the best dip bait there is. I like the Blood series. Works on Channels and Blues. I always have some in my boat.:smile2::0a23::0a25::0a25:

    Sonny's is a great bait. I have caught only channels with it though. Works best in some current.

    I have tried some of the different stink baits, but I haven't had much luck with them?

    I would try what is natural to the waters you are fishing?

    Welcome to the BOC. Great people and information. As far as Sonny's goes, I have used both orginal and blood. It is kinda a midwest "regional" dip bait. Very popular up here around, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, etc.

    It's a good dip bait. However, I like the Cattracker line of dip baits better. As with most dip baits they work best during the warmer months when water temperatures are I'd say 65 to 70 F.
