    Magic Bait Premo is the only store bought bait that I ever have luck on, and I love the stuff. I highly recommend it. I seem to be able to catch channels on that stuff whenever nothing else works, and even if other stuff does.

    i know that tofish uses hogwild blood bait and hogwild original and catches some good eating sized channels on it. you can usually find it at walmart. i am going to give it a shot this weekend.

    Best thing that I have found to hold stink bait is the Looper Rigs that is sold by one of our sponsors here on the boc.

    I have not had any luck on any dip baits.. I think I have tried all of them..

    * A raw shrimp on a khale hook will catch you some nice channels..

    I have just the thing for you in dealing with trying to catch channels on dip bait.

    Get Premo Super Sticky... you can find it through Catfish Connection.

    Then get some Looper Rigs... they can be purchased through his own personal website or also through Catfish Connection. I prefer to use the kahle hook type.

    I have started to bait up one of my poles with this when fishing for flatheads on the Colorado. It seems to keep the excitement going while I am waiting for the flatties to bite.

    Ray,

    I would have to say that the Looper Rigs are really nice. The bait stays on real well. Dale taught me a good little trick with the Premo. If you dip the bait and load it on pretty heavy, then stick it in the water, it will firm up and stays on better.

    As far as the moon goes, I have always been partial to fishing before a full moon and new moon cycles. I guess I got hooked onto this when living in Georgia. The only thing is that I did really well in Georgia, but the water was 30 feet deep. Since moving back to Arizona, I have seemed to have less luck fishing a full moon on the River...I don't know if it is because the river is not as deep or not.

    I have kinda dropped the whole idea of fishing during the moon cycles and just try to get out and fish. I think that the moon cycles do have an effect on feeding habits, but I also think it depends on the waters that you are fishing.

    I am hoping to try and do a little more fishing throughout the year, but it is getting really cold up here in Northern AZ, and my fishing abilities get scarce over the next few months.

    well since yall are rantin and ravin about the premo i ordered some and was curious ( i am beached when i fish ) i was wondering if it would be a good idea to mix a little of the premo in water and chum a little before i fish a cove :wink:



    ****ALSO***** some say to

    poke a couple holes in a can of sweet corn and use that as chum

    put liver and corn in a sack and chum it

    or use sour corn

    so im thinking of useing # 2 or seeing how the premo works

    Save your money and buy a cast net or some worms to catch bluegills with. IMO that stuff is only good for one thing and that is to help fill up the landfills with. That stuff is not sold to catch fish on,its sold to catch a fishermen's money.

    Some ppl say it works well for them. But I've tried many of them over the years at different times,waters & temps and never got a hit on any of it. Beside that they all smell up your fishing area really bad so I've gave up on them all. Good Luck hope it works for you.

    LeRoy,

    Premo would probably be pretty hard to use to chum the water. It seems to be pretty pasty and oily. The best thing that I could use to compare with it is lard or shortening, only thicker. It doesn't break apart easily in the water.

    One thought that I had for chumming the water is to take some worms and corn...let them get a little warm in the sun for a day or so and then mush them up a bit. Channels like the smell of both. I have chummed areas in Roosevelt with several small burlap sacks of livestock corn and brought in a bunch of channels before. I am sure the same would work from the bank...just place it in an area at least 1/2 day prior and make sure the corn has been soaking a while.
