    Hey guys, what brand and flavor of dip bait do you like and at what time of year does it work best for you?

    I have never tried dip baits but I've heard they work best in late summer. I'm leaning towards picking up some Danny King original flavor but I'm open to suggestions.

    Thanks!

    I like to use Sonny's Original. I have better luck with it than the blood fomula.

    Doc's blood bait works good around here. The original doesn't seem to do as well.

    If I can list one, I would have to choose Catfish Charlies in Shad. Sonnys Blood is just as good. I would suggest you carry several with you. There are days the fish will prefer one over the other. Best of luck to you.:big_smile:

    Thanks for the suggestions. Do you guys feel dip baits work better than cut bait in certain situations? Time of year, time of day, water temp, current, etc?

    Also, is there ever any benefit to using a dip bait as an attractor along with cut bait, perhaps on a two hook rig?

    Live Bait and Cut Baits will out perform stink baits most of the time. It will also attract larger fish. Dip Baits work good when you are wanting to catch some for the frying pan. (Eaters) I never go fishing without dip baits in my boat. I prefer skipjack heads over everything else. Shad is next. Then Dip Baits.:big_smile:

    Danny Kings punch bait in the blood is my favorite.
