I'm going to the Texas Freshwater Fish Center, or whatever it's called, in Athens in the morning, and currently making some dough bait up. My current stock is 12 lbs of fresh chicken livers, 7 packs of hotdogs, a package of velveeta cheese, and some dough bait I'm thinking of making up. I've been reading around and found some recipes that look more like a kid's snack than bait...which could prove a problem with a a 9, 5, and almost 4 year old.
What I've come up with trying is taking 2 lbs of the chicken livers, some chum bait that worked well to attract em last week down there, and coming up with some idea of holding it together...I've been reading cornmeal works well, any other suggestions to get that stuff to hold together long enough to attract a bite from something longer than 10" in their little fish pond thing? Thanks
