    Yep. Didn't have any luck with it. Drys out really quick and has very little smell to it.

    Yep, use it all of the time ... I use small shad or chunks about 2 inches and also use it in a ground paste bait that I make up .... Shad has accounted for all of the 26 coon and 2 of the mink I have this year ... Garry-
