    ok, for general fishing, what prepared bait is best for general fishing. I want something that is in a reclosable container, can be kept in tacklebox, threaded on a regular hook and has a chance of catching something. I usuallly go to lake but sometimes the river.
    I don't like trebles or messing with sponges, dip tubes etc.
    just a simple go to bait for a occasional fisherman.
    I don't always carry anything to catch bait so? other than fishin sticks ( red w/fuse) :smile2: what yall think?

    leave the prepared baits alone and just buy a couple containers of worms when you go.you,ll catch a lot more fish.

    Im like you on not liking trebles. I use the j hooks with secret 7 and sonnys with tubes with a lot of luck for catfish. With worms i might catch more fish but they are all blue gill around here.

    give danny king a go it stays on the hook real good and you can catch decent fish on it.Secret 7 is also a good bait.

    Gotta agree with Catfish Charlie. Take a little soured grain and bait a hole and throw the Charlie out and hang on.

    Catfish charlie, Blue Jay if ya can still find any....And Liver chesse blood bait. It is in the yellow container. If ya are pond hopping and can lob a pole reel good liver chesse dough bait stays on the hook pretty well. But remember them there turtle and bait stealers love it too so check often!

    I know plenty of people that just buy a tub of chicken livers from the grocery store and have some luck. I don't use store bought but the wife bought me some 2 packs of artificial chicken livers by Berkley that come in packs like rubber worms, she was trying to help but just doesn't understand, one in chicken flavor and a one in blood flavor, I have also seen them in liver flavor. I used them once for a couple of hours to see how they were and didn't even get a bite. Could've of been that night since we didn't catch anything or they don't work, don't know but they do stink.

    Give the Team Catfish "Furry Thang" a try using a circle hook or J hook. Sonny's or Secret 7 work well and stay on the "Furry Thang". Both of these products catch cats; one day they want Sonny's the next day they want Secret 7 so you should have a container of both. Another thing that works for me is a piece of hot dog injected with cod liver oil but that can get kind of messy and you go home smelling like the bilge on a tuna schooner.:eek:oooh:

    A steady job and the love of a good woman have been the ruination of many a good fisherman
