    This will be the best bait you have ever tried.It works well on trott lines too.
    Ferment 5 lbs of milo in a bucket cover with a lid keep the bucket out side the house.
    A double handful of cotton seed meal
    A big box of wheaties Breakfast of Champions 2 large eggs
    1 cup Karo syrup
    Use a large mason jar with lid extract the juce of the grain. Mix the other items together and make a ball. If it does not make a ball add a can of biscuits there was to much cotton seed meal. Then mash up the remaining grain to pulp which we will use for chum. Use treble hook to load your bait on and use a scoop to spread your chum. Make sure it's mashed well we don't want them full before they find our hook!

    So once your hook is baited, dip that dude in the jar for a couple minutes. You may want a spoon to help push them fermented seeds in the dough bait. That also helps to not get the smell of your hands on the bait. Fish the flats for cats this bat will catch catfish.

    I will have to try this. I am experimenting too. What a great sport when you can make you own concoctions and see what happens.

    I don`t think this bait would work for drift fishing but it will last a long time if you can stand the smell.

    Hope we can take a trip to Santee before long.I will up load some pics of the fish the guys at work have been catching. :thumbsup:

    Hey Ace, how long do you let the milo ferment? Or will I be able to tell, by the smell? Thanks for the recipe, it brought back some treasured, but forgotten memories. Gillfish
