    I have used the original formula the most and have had good luck, but what about the garlic and blood varieties?

    I have no luck with the new synthetic fiber formula.... I have fished the original and garlic before the switch and have caught fish in the past. Never fished with the blood formula..

    I am looking for a new bait to use...

    The blood I bought was really bad. it seems like it's all cotton and some sort of light red coloring in it. It was a waste of my money. The garlic is really good.

    I guess I have really only used the blood. I have never used or been around anyone using the garlic, so I might try it sometime. I do know that the blood out fished the orignal friday night 10 to 1.

    The regular I just bought has very little sent and and has produced no fish. The garlic has more sent, but the consistancy is still not good and I do not like this new formula.

    Any suggestions out there for an alternative treble hook punch bait??

    I like Sure-shot best, any of cat trackers work well. Some of the cheese baits work great when the water gets warm, but I always go back to sure-shot.

    I've probably put more in my boat on the red with white being a close second. I've caught them on the garlic when they wouldn't hit the other two. When they are really feeding, they will hit just about anything though.

    Is Academy a good place to get this? Wal-Mart? How about Big Marv's?

    I use the blood most of the time. It always seems to work good for me. I've never had a problem with it.

    I originally posted with the question "which danny kings works best". At that time i was using bait thas was purchased last year. I recent purchased new bait and i am very dissappointed. It neither smells or looks like the old stuff. I even tried e mailing the company and got no response. In a PM conversation "Lewis Kings" bait was mentioned. Has anybody used this? I have used danny kings for years, but i guess it is time to change!

    I use the blood myself.....when I head off to the barge and catch the cats, they always ask me what do I use?

    So blood is for me. :wink:

    Need to try out the secret 7 catfish bait. It has really been working for me. Caught 98 channel cats last Friday on it. It's not a punch bait but rather a dip bait. Really works good. Here is the link if your interested in reading more about it. http://www.teamcatfish.com/

    I have nothing but the blood, and I have gotten a bite on it on 5 fishing trips this year. I'll try the garlic or orginal, before I call it quits on DK.

    I have pretty good luck on the blood. I'll have to try the garlic soon.
