    stuffed night crawlers. I had made a batch and learned a few things also some of the guys here added some thoughts and changes were made. But in the end I caught more crappie than catfish, imagine that

    I made my own bait once. Was worked fine. The ingredients were dog food, garlic, bacon grease, salt, berkeley catfish bait, and rotten corn. It wasn't the best but it stunk so bad I had to seal it up with tape!

    I haven't used much home-made bait other than cured livers, but I have had success with lots of home-made chum from taking grains and some beer and letting them set out.

    mine would have to be a toss up between hotdogs cured in vinegar and cherry kool aide and chicken liver cured in vanilla and garlic powder.

    My favorite homemade catfish bait would have to be hamburger, parmesan cheese and wheaties,mix together and keep on ice,fished with a treble hook.
