Catfish Dough Bait Make Your Own

Dry Powder Cheese Bait

1 package cheese powder (from the macaroni and cheese dry powder box)
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese shredded
2 cups Jiffy biscuit mix
Oil

Mix all of the ingredients together and add oil until the dough becomes stiff and you can pack it and make it into dough balls. You can then make the individual dough balls and place them in the refrigerator to chill until you are ready to use them. You will want to use a pantyhose pouch to secure the dough ball to the hook.

Blood Dough Balls

Get as much chicken blood as you can from the butcher. Add half a jar of garlic powder. Add flour to the blood until you have a stiff mixture. The flour is going to be red and smelly. Form the dough into dough balls and place in the refrigerator for at least a day to get cold. You should keep the balls in a container that will contain the smell. Use a pantyhose pouch to secure on the hook.

This recipe is newer and was used to catch a nice size catfish. This recipe proves that you don’t need chicken livers, but the blood of the chickens to attract the catfish. The recipe is ready in minutes and the next day, you are ready to head out with your stink bait.

Before you go out with minnows or shad, you should try homemade bait that will bring the fish running. The catfish have a keen sense of smell and will be able to smell the stink bait for a long distance. You can use an old pair of pantyhose as a pouch, thus you don’t have to spend money on a tube or a dough bait pouch. If you add a little variation to some of these recipes, you will want to make sure that they are smelly and not bland. Make the most of your catfishing and use bait that will bring them running to you.
