    If you have to run into the big city then stop at Bass Pro. I am not sure if they will have it but it is worth the stop. I found it at Cabella's in Buda.
    Good luck.

    Bass Pro Shops doesn't carry Danny King's punch bait. Try Cabela's, Gander Mountain, Academy or Wal-Mart. WM doens't usually stock it next to the other catfish baits. Not sure why. You'll have to look through the entire fishing dept on all shelves top to bottom. You never know where it's going to be.

    Do you catch big cats on punch bait? I have never tried it. I don't want to catch the little ones, I target channels 10 pounds and up and normally use live bream and golden shiners 4 to 6 inches long.

    You can go here and order it, I wouldn't order anything smaller than a 1 gallon container.

    One of the misconceptions of this bait is it will only catch eaters. My pb with it is 20 lbs. and a 41 lber was caught on it last year in the pre-paired bait tournament on Texoma. I know of lots of 30 lber's being caught on it. Yes it will catch a lot of eaters but it will catch big fish as well.

    Last year my guests caught a 12, 15, 16 and 21 along with about 1,100 others that were under 10 lbs. on Danny King's Punch Bait with either a #2, #4 or #6 hook. Not a big bait by any means. If you use a bigger hook you'll catch bigger fish. But you won't get nearly the numbers you can get with the smaller hooks.

    I think Academy is going to stop carrying it, at least the one in Shertz

    I've found it in small bait shops near lakes with catfish, and I've seen it at Academy...

    You can get Danny King at Walmart also. Usually Walmart will keep it on the top shelf, but there will be times you will find it on the bottom shelf or just under the hooks. I use the #4 treble hook. The best one that I love to use is the blood bait! Last week at the barge I caught a 3.97 channel with his blood bait! It was wonderful!!!!!!!

    You are able to get Danny King on his website also. I would get the gallon one. It's priced pretty good. :smile2:

    The wally worlds in Floresville and military @ goliad don't carry it and the Academy on Military @ Flores can't keep it on the shelves as per the sales guy there. The light House C store by lake Calaveras has some for $9.99 by their bait cooler though I think this stuff has gold in it lol.

    Hey friends,
    I found some DK'S at the academy on military at flores, at this time they have all three flavors and about 8 of each on the shelf.
    Next time we're going to Braunig to see how we do.

    I just got back from the Academy Sports in Plano (on 75) and they've got a good supply of all three flavors....
