    I've seen a handful of people take cotton balls and rip them up and mix them in the punch bait like the cattails.

    Dryer lint , next time you comb your dog or cat use the hair. I know sounds crazy but it works.

    Just shaved my cat trying to catch the neighbors cat its a long haired one,
    bet they will wonder what got a whole of their cat, my dog won't come home,
    ether.
    have found cotton balls, pulled apart, easier to work with. than, cattail's,
    was wondering about deer hair it floats I think.

    I know essentially nothing about punch bait, but i read in a post somewhere the filler used in the old orange floation vest works well. Personally, i don't have a clue:eek:oooh:

    Some successful baits include cottonseed meal, cotton lint and chopped fresh chicken skin. (The secret of chopping chicken skin is to freeze it first, then grind or chop it)

    There was one bait I used in Texas that contained finly cut newsprint! It worked!

    Some good baits use no fiber component at all, relying on the other components to provide the thickness needed... sticky mozzerella cheese, dried coarsely ground shad, wheat or rice hulls, soured and finely ground grain, etc...

    the winter coat will float as the hairs are hollow. the summer coat is actually thicker due to this
