I've heard plenty of people talk about it.. I'm just alittle skeptical about it.. The stories I've read seem too good to be true almost.. I've tried almost everything under the sun to catch catfish. EVEN PLAYDOUGH! (works too!) But nothing has ever been WAY better than another all the time... So. With that being said, Is it pretty legit? I mean The website says you have to send your check and shipping instructions to him before he sends the bait. Not saying I don't trust the guy, but now days you have to be weary.

you dont have to order it, you can go to denton or decature and pick it up yourself for $20 and save the shipping. i personally used seven gallons last summer, but only 3 this summer cause i have concentrated more on blues. you can see on my fish count that a few were caught on my boat so far this year, most of the channels were caught on sureshot. knock on wood i have personnaly never been skunked with sureshot.
you dont need directions. tie on a #6 treble hook, take a wood paint stick or an 1 1/2 wide piece of aluminum flat stock. push hook in bait, pack it around hook, and pull it out at an angle, a bait about as big as your little finger tip is plenty, as long as it covers most of your hook. rebait after 20 minutes

no bait will can be gauranteed to catch fish, if your in a spot over 20 minutes and no fish, they are more than likely not there so move to another location.

I'll tell you a little story about Benny Roberts. I ordered a gallon of bait from him, and it got lost or stolen. I called Benny after a week or so and asked if he mailed it. He said yes, he even had the receipt. He asked me to wait a few more days and if it didn't show up, he would send a replacement. It didn't and he did. He is a very honest person and will take care of his customers.

Sure shot works. Caught my PB on Lavon 3 hours ago using it for the first time. No camera and I let her go, but it was about 36 inches long. No Joke!

Yeah. I understand that, but its a single person. You can't be sure when ONE person asks you to send them money before they send you something thats "too good to be true"

I have been using Benny's bait for going on 10 years now, long before anyone on the web even spoke of Sure Shot Catfish Bait, back when you were an outcast if you used anything other than Danny King's or even spoke of anything other than Danny King's.

You can look to the left here and see how long I have been on TFF, the number of posts and who I am by the links in my signature.

Benny used to ship bait on the honor system and would send people bait and then get them to send the money and then he repeatedly got ripped off and got hot checks and had to stop, plus he was out the cost of the bait, plus the shipping.

I used to do the online orders for him accepting credit cards here because he doesn't want to accept credit cards or mess with any of that. I quit because my catfish bait business got to where I couldn't handle it.

He has a good product and it sells, if you knew how much he sold from his little shack in Decatur Texas you would be shocked.

Benny is a close personal friend of mine. There are not many people in this world that I will "vouch" for but I will vouch for Benny. I can say 100% that you are not going to get ripped off by sending him money. If you send him money, and your check clears the bank you will get bait, period, end of discussion.

I am on my first bucket of Sure Shot and am very impressed with it. I used to be a Dk Blood fan but gave SS a shot. its good stuff. it is not as easy to keep o nthe hook as DK but there are ways around that. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed.

Should help with the issues of it not staying the hook. When it cools off some more this will not be an issue anymore though.

Hey TxPacker4. I live in Denton and come back down to see the parent's in garland every weekend. Hell, I even fish the pond that you caught that bass in your sig(beltline and n.garland). How about we meet this weekend on Saturday at a pond so you can try out some sureshot. If you love it. I can get you some and bring it back the following week.

Been buying it from Benny for years, never had a problem. I still have a couple gallons in the shed.

I am always wary of internet transactions, but if you pay Benny and he don't send you any bait, I will give you a gallon of mine.

Is it true that sureshot is made with cormorant poop?
