    When fishing for channels,I seem to have better luck with the "Orginal Flavor" (cheese flavor) dip baits,over the Blood Flavor dip baits. What do you guy's like the best? Do you think it depends on the river you are fishing? I just picked up some Sonny's Blood flavor (they were out of the cheese flavor). Haven't used it yet though. I did have some Magic Bait "blood flavor" that I never caught a fish with. It smelled really bad,but never produced a fish,for me. Ron

    There are lots of good dip baits on the market. One of the best flavor baits I've found is "Shad" Made by Catfish Charlie

    Maybe,I'll give the Sonny's Blood a try!:big_smile: The DK Punch bait does work well too. I seem to catch larger channels on it for some reason. Ron

    Whatever flavor secret 7 is... In my opinion its STANK flavor.. b/c if it gets on your hands, it stanks for 3 days!! lol, but it catches fish so its worth it.

    I purchased all of mine through Bass Pro Shops in Nashville, and St Charles Mo. Buy the large containers when you find it because it is not always available. I don't think Catfish connections handles it.

    I use sonny's in blood. The original and blood worked good for me but the blood seemed to work a little better. I use cat tubes with my sonny's they float up off the bottom and I have caught bigger fish useing them as well. I really like secret 7 as well with the mini furry thang.

    Secret 7 is hard to beat, but try to keep off of your clothing to keep you wife happy.

    I only use two types Secret 7 and Magic Original. If they won't hit those they won't hit dip bait IMO

    Premos Blood flavor for me is the ticket. I also use a doughbait that has cheese and liver and works well also.
