Thanks Laker for the Kudos. I just use cheep Corn Flakes. Crush them up in my hand, add a little water and form a fist size dough ball. I then pinch off enough to form a smaller ball around the hook and that's it. I have used Big Red instead of water like many do but haven't noticed enough difference to warrant taking a can of pop with me. I also found I must make the dough ball as needed as it will dry out, making it more like a rubber ball too hard to set the hook. We normally chum the area by throwing out some can corn to hopefully draw them into the area.
