Tips for Making Your Own Catfish Bait Balls

Making your own catfish bait balls is easy. There are so many different ingredients that you can use and you can even invent your own mixture. When making your own bait balls there are five main things that you need to remember. First of all, you want to choose a base that will help to hold the concoction together. The base is a vital part of making bait balls because this is what allows you to roll the mixture into a ball and what makes it hold its shape.

The second thing to remember is too add something to the mixture for smell. Since catfish are known for their keen sense of smell you need something that captures their attention and draws them in your direction. Therefore, finding a good stink bait to go with the mixture is also a very important step.

The third thing that you need to do is experiment. It may take a little while and several failed attempts before you find that perfect combination but if you don’t give up and you’re not afraid to try different things, you are sure to be successful. Once you have the mixture combined it’s time for the last two steps.

All you need to do is roll the mixture out into balls and place it into storage until you are ready to go fishing. Catfish bait balls really work and can help you have more success than you ever imagined.
