    I just seen this stuff at cabelas and was wondering if anyone has tried this stuff out? It looks like smashed up strawberries. If i did buy some, how would i keep it on the hook?

    I used this stuff at a lake full of carp near my house. It holds best on a treble, it dissolves very slowly. I caught tons of carp, however, I didnt land one over 20lbs. All in all, it works well but, doesn't beat marshmallows.

    I've tried it out a few times, don't even remember getting a bite on it honestly.

    Tried it once in a side by side test with corn and my own homemade conconctions. Caught the heck out of carp on everything BUT the Uncle Josh bait.

    We tried this several times last year and the year before. We caught tons of channels on it but no carp. I haven't really messed around with it this year. I think i have a container of it somewhere. It stays on the hook fairly well...

    I also think its a waste of money. Bread and corn is simple and it always works.:wink:
