    Hi all.
    This was posted in another thread as well.
    I was thinking of trying my hand at creating a homemade bait. Here's what I'm thinking. Let me know what you guys think. I plan on trying this bait out this year. Here's the recipe:


    1 pound chicken livers with blood
    grated parmesan cheese
    vanilla extract
    Garlic powder
    2 packets strawberry kool aid
    1 raw egg
    flour or cornmeal to thicken

    Directions:
    mash up the livers, vanilla, and egg
    add in the kool aid, garlic powder, parmesan cheese and flour/ cornmeal to desired thickness.
    Let mixture set outside in some heat for a couple days

    I plan on using a treble hook with the spring on it to hold the bait, so I'm thinking It's going to have to be pretty thick.

    I figure the blood from the livers will be good, plus the scent of the parmesan and egg once it 'ripens' should be a good attractant. Let me know what you guys think.

    Funky is right. I would think it would work. Let us know.

    That's the great thing about fishing for channels, darn near any concoction will probably work at some point and time. It does sound like it has several known bait additives all put together. I think you should field test it thouroughly and let us know. But I would say that it would work.

    Funny you should say that....I didn't mention I got the idea from my wife's recipe for French toast....did I say my wife has issues in the kitchen? I'm sure glad she doesn't look at this site. LOL

    :p As Larry says "get her done" I use something almost the same her in New York and it works prety good for cats as well as large carp.
