Here's a dipbait I make and have real good luck with, it works REAL well with a Looper dipbait rig. I get a couple of beef brains and a couple of jars of limburger cheese. (You can use the bricks, but they're much more expensive with no better results.) I put a couple of brains and a couple of jars of cheese, just depends on the size of the blender container. Puree it, then put it in a container, bigger than the mixture as it will rise. Set it outside in the sun, the hotter the better. Next day after it is up, just stir it, leave the maggots in, trust me, they'll be there. Depending on the temperature it'll take a couple of days till it quits rising, then you've got a cured bait. To thicken it you can use cattail fuzz, I use potters clay(powder) which stiffens it up real well. A couple of cautionary notes, keep the open container downwind (from you anyway), don't get any on you, the "aroma" will stay with you a loooooooong time!
