    I was wondering if anyone would know of a good easy to obtain preservative to put into a homemade stinkbait. I am wanting to blend up some shad and use as is, but I think that alone would be a "not so good" idea after a few weeks of sitting around.:eek:oooh: Any suggestions? Thanks!

    I am not sure how to preserve it, but you will need to add some "thickener" in order to make it solid enough to stay on the hook. Good luck

    Check out the BOC library for lots of bait making info. Also we have sponsors with some great baits.

    Maybe if you put a good bit of salt in it? It preserves skipjack fillets very well.

    Yeah salt might work pretty good.

    I used to use homemade dip bait. I'd start with liver and bee-jay cheesebait mix it up really well and dip a load of nightcrawlers in it. it sticks well and you can add just about anything to it to 'personalize' it.
