The dough bait sticks in my nose so much I hate to use it and never really catches much. But if you cut up a blue gill or two and then leave it in the sun for a day in a sealed ziplock back. Get a big breath open the bag. Close the bag walk away from the bag. Breath. big breath. Hook the bait cast. and rinse hands in water. Breath. But good thing is it doesnt stick around like dough bait. But man it stinks. And you are guarenteed a meal either a monster cat or a monster Snapper. Cut head off discard. Get a fire going. Cut shell off bottom gut cut meat from legs and tail throw vegtables and little beef broth in shell put shell on the fire. And wallah Turtle Stew and a nice new bowl.
