Somebody recommended I use a bait that is cheese and cow brains mixed together. Has anyone had any success with this bait?

Didn't know you can still buy cow brain. I thought MAD cow disease stop that business operation...plus the cow will be mad if they know you’re using their brain for bait. smile

If you find cow brains please post the location. I understand they are no longer available due to mad cow disease. Pork brains are almost impossible to find as well.

I don't know if you can get brains but you can get beef blood at Fishers meat market in Muenster Tx.

We get our pork brains when we kill feral hogs. I also got a friend that guides for feral hogs, so it can be easy at times to get them.

That is a great idea using wild hog brains. I was thinking about baiting my favorite fishing hole with a whole wild hog... has anyone ever tried that? Not to be morbid but I pass a pitbull smashed on the side of the road every few days, Im gonna have to start selling pit bull brain stink bait.
WHAT IS BETTER HOG BRAINS OR SHAD?

I FOUND BILL'S BRAINS AND CHEESE! They had 2 jars at Causeway marina @ cedar creek lake. I looked at the address said 418 N Second, Sapulpa Oklahoma 74066 Bill's catfish bait.
I dont use anything but fresh shad for fishing blue catfish now, I guess I upgraded.

I wouldn't think brains would be hard to find. They serve them in authentic mexican food restaurants as barbacoa, its pretty damn good too. Check out a local mexican meat market. Maybe even a Fiesta Mart if those are still around.

This fish was floatin behind my camp so I thought I would sink it to the bottom. I thought it would attract catfish but apparently this and all the fish we clean have been bringing in alot of TURTLES. I am about to start relocating turtles, Does anyone know how to get rid of them?

barbacoa dont have brains in it. It is supposed to be made from cow head or cow cheek but most taqorias sell cow NECK as barbacoa. barbacua is like $10 a pound. I would eat them tacos before I would feed it to the lake LOL!

If you want to make some at home or maybe not home but close.
For brains try a Oriental typ stor. I have bought brains for one in Richardson. Look for out dated you can get it cheeper. I made a gallon for about $5.00 a few years back

Grand Dad used to mix hog brains, old cheese, and pureed shad, place into a paint can and set it out in the sun. I remember it would swell to about twice the amount placed in the can. I also remember why I didn't like to fish with Grand Dad very often. That stuff smelled awful, but we did catch a lot of catfish with it.

I make a bait from equal parts of cheese, pork brains, and ground up meat fat (5 lbs. of each). Let it rot (stirring occasionally) and mix in cattails to thicken. I call it Catish Candy. Works great, stays on the hook, and lasts in a sealed container forever practically. I personally caught 1,500 cats in Fork with it in 2011 when I kept accurate records. I don't sell it any more except to friends so don't mind sharing the recipe. I get my pork brains from Columbia Meat Packing based in Dallas.

The go-to stinkbait recipe I grew up with was beef brains, limburger cheese, and some oil of anus.

This company makes some excellent dip bait: http://cattracker.com/index.php

I'm from OK, and used to use Bill's, and had good luck with it. The best local stinkbait is O'henry's, made in Gracemont, OK.
