Caught 15 in hour and half yesterday and today snagged 16 more in one hour. All released to grow bigger.
Was just testing it in a local park pond. I figure if it works good there it should work anywhere.
It's a dough bait. Tested in a glass of water showed it stayed on the hook unmolested for over an hour.

All I have to do now is remember what all I put in it ???????
One ingredient was Mesquite bean flour hence the brown color.

Well, unless you intend to try to sell this stuff, tell us what else you put in it. Always interesting to know what people use for bait.

Lot of information and recipes on the Internet. Most say the same thing you said opus. I won't be trying to make any myself.

I won't ever be making any for sale. This is the same stuff as I used to make for carp and buffalo. I just added cheese, garlic and bacon grease. Never thought it would catch whiskers like it has. The true test will be on Lake Bonham Monday. Anybody want to go? I have an open seat.

What you do is start to give it way to friends, family and co-workers strangers!
Yes, give it way and then when they keep begging you for more, then you'll know if you've got something that might be sellable.
