Original post made by Bruce K Staggers(Story Teller) on September 2, 2004 i have a dip/dough bait that is both scary in the way that catfish are attracted to it. and stink soo bad that you can't get near it. . i have caught many catfish in the 30 and 40lb. range, and i live in chicago....... 10-15 large earthworms (let die and spoil) 5-6 bluegill (guts only) 3 shad 1 tbsp garlic powder 1/2 c. sour buttermilk 1/4 c. corn meal flour mix this outside of your home. the smell is sickening. in a blender that you'll throw away. blend all indegredents except, flour. pour wet mixture into a large bowl. add flour until it's consistency is what you would need for a dip or dough bait. store in a large pickle jar and tight lid...put into refrigerator until needed.
