I thought, since the weather looked less than good today, I'd work on a project I've been thinking about for a while, instead of fishing. I always wanted to try to make some punch bait, that would work.
So this is what I did.
I took about a pint of bacon grease that I've been saving. Then I bought 4 boxes($.50) of store brand mac-n-cheese. 1 box of store brand cheezits crackers($1.50) Garlic powder ($1) I had 17 cat tails that I picked from a ditch on the side of the road.
I heated the bacon grease in a big stock pot on my kerosene heater and added the mac-n-cheese and garlic powder. I have a barrel of chum (sour grain), so I added about a pint of the juice from it. Added all the cat tails and everything else and stirred it all up.
It made almost 2 gallons of bait.


Well, I couldn't resist heading down to the water to give it a test!
Put a couple lines out. Ran back to the house and gave them 30 minutes. Came back and it worked! banana

It was raining pretty hard and getting cold, so I called it a day.
Since I had the chum already, it only cost me about $5 to make almost 2 gallons.
Don't know if it will need refrigeration or not, but I guess I'll find out! shocked
Stay tuned for more testing!

Happy fishing!

grinDAY TWO HOMEMADE PUNCH BAIT TEST: Well, I got out on this snow day and put out a couple lines again. Was a little slow today. Sat there about 45 minutes without a bite. I decided to leave them out and go back to the house and warm up. Came back to check in about an hour, and had one. banana
Guess the channels like it!

Yes it did. It's a little soft, but it does have water in it and I'm sure it will get better as it dries out more. I was more afraid of it being too stiff to "punch" in to. It didn't fling off when casted as is. breakdance

be difficult to get it too stiff

just press your hook into it with a stick and pull out at an angle.

looks good

good luck
