There are several different brands of range or breeder cubes that work well. I have used lots of different brands depending on what the feed store carries. I like to get at least 20% protein. The fish seem to respond much better to a high protein level. Right now I use Big V Feeds brand - 20% natural Breeder Cubes. They come from McAlester, Oklahoma but my local feed store carries them. I put out about 5 pounds at a time when I leave the fishing area and try to fish 3 days in a row. The last day will usually be game on even if the first 2 days are slow. The more consistently you can chum a spot, the more productive it will be.

The reason behind using 20% or better is that they are dense enough to go down where you throw them out instead of being carried quite aways away from underwater current like the 12-15% cubes. If you put them in some type of bag it doesn’t matter, however that is just something else to get hung on when fishing. We never use bags.

I've used a few different brands of 20% and have not noticed a difference. They work great and fish will be full of them in 10-15 minutes!

I’ve never noticed a certain brand being better than the other. A lot of times Atwood’s has them on sale for 7.99 a bag and they are the plastic type of bag which I like better because they don’t rip apart easily if the bag sits in boat overnight and dew settles on it.

I have found that all of them seem to work. My catfish i clean are full with the cubes so the fish do eat them.

anything that STINKS...a catfish is a swimming tongue...smells everything...we used soured wheat...the slimy-er / stinky-er the better...granted, cow cake is simpler, but if u want immediate response from a turdy, try soured wheat...it can b dun in a 5 gal bukit...we used a 55 gal barrel

I've got a bucket that's been brewing about 8 years. Some nasty stuff to be sure but, they do come running!
Little dab will do ya!
