CATALPA SOAP SOUNDS GREAT IF YOU RUN ACROSS THERE NAME OR NUMBER LET ME KNOW. I WOULD LOVE TO TRY IT OUT.There is a bait shop in Jasper, Tx that sells Catalpa soap bait. It does work very well. I can not remember the exact name of the shop but if you are interested you can call around Jasper to the bait shops or I can hunt the name and number down for you, let me know on here. A lady runs the shop and she will mail it to you.
I tried the pink zote a few times last summer, and not one bite came my way.around here we find zote soap at brookshires but don't look for it in your stores in the soap section. Look for it with the laundry detergeants. It is a bar soap that is a laundry detergeant. That maybe why your not finding it. The reason the soap works is because it is made of 66% animal fatty acids. Ivory soap (the white kind) is made of 50% animal fatty acids and works good too, but, you have to cut up the Ivory with a cheese slicer or a piece of dental floss. You cannot cut it up with a knife cause it will break apart on you. The Zote is waxer and softer and you can cut it with a knife. You can also doctor the soap up if ya like or use it plain. There are many different methods for doctoring the soap and you will find all the recipes for that in the memger library, but , the easiest method is to just sprinkle some garlic powder on the chunks you cut up before you go out. Hope this helps. Good luck.
