    Well I made a bunch out of some free Riccota cheese I was given.

    Started with a base of cooked cornmeal, added the drained cheese (kinda like cottage cheese texture wise) blended them together then started working in flour.

    I froze a quart of this base for use next year.

    To this I added the meat from one Goldeye that had been sitting in the fridge for a week. (not ripe, but very very soft, kinda scraped it off the skin rather than cut or fillet.) Also added 1 can of sardines in oil, some garlic.

    I actually had quite good luck with this bait, but it started growing mold on it in the fridge. And at that point the fish pretty much quit biting on it.

    If I was going to do this again, I would.

    A save every scrap of moldy cheese I could lay my hands on till I had quite a bit frozen. Then thaw it all out and make bait.

    B If I used the ricotta again, set it outside for a week in the sun to get really ripe.

    C Freeze in smaller quantity's

    D Add more flavor, either 2 or 3 goldeye's gone a bit ripe/soft, or a couple of large cans of sardines or herring in oil.

    Mark and Nick had a recipe I'm sure they wouldn't mind if I shared.
    Both were old retired fishing buddies that fished every day.

    In a 5 gallon bucket 3/4 full of chunked cheese add eggs.
    Mash and stir until smooth consistency.

    There you have it.
    Let age until you need some. Gets better with age.

    have a good one
    just

    they mean the plant called cattails that grows in swamps and marshes and near water...has a big thing on top looks like a corndog that is really a bunch of fuzz if you break it up. use this fuzz to thicken dip/stink baits and it turns them into punch baits.

    I made some stinkbait one time. This is what I did...

    In a 1 gallon ziplock freezer bag, I combined rotten livers, 1/2 lb moldy mozzarella, eggs, tuna, sardines in oil, garlic salt, and cornflakes. I closed the bag and kneaded it into a thick bater and made balls of it and put them in egg cartons. Next, I set them outside for a couple days and used the dried result. Needless to say, I drew some flies and the smell almost brought me to tears. However it was all worth it because I had great success on channels that weekend.

    Not sure why but I havent done that since. Probably the smell!!:crazy: But Thats how I did it. I used rubber gloves when I made the rations so my hands never even got dirty until I was ready to put them on a hook. I would recommend making your own bait to anyone because there is nothing more fun than mixing a bunch of crap together and then see it actually produce fish. This is quite fulfilling actually.

    So just see what you can round up from the back of the fridge and try it :smile2::smile2:
