Smelly Bait

Discussion in 'Homemade baits' started by strictly catfish, Feb 15, 2008.

  1. Here is a concauction that is destined for catfish glory.
    Get some cheap hot dogs.Cut into small pieces,just the right size for your hook.Use a tooth pick to poke holes in the dogs{about 20 times}.
    The next step is to put the dogs in a Zip-Lock bag and add about half a bottle of Anise oil.
    Anise oil can be found at most grocery stores and have a very potent smell.
    Let that sit for a couple of days{Don't let the Anise oil get on your clothes}.
    The smell is so potent that you can fish with the same bait for atleast 8 hours{The longer you let it sit the stronger the scent}.
    Good-Luck!

    Welcome to the BOC, that does sound like a very smelly bait. I will have to try it this year. The BOC is so full new ideas that I may not even be able use my old techniques.
