I don't live anywhere near a bait shop, and while I have good luck with CJ's and Billy King's, sometimes I want to use some kind of meat chunks on a Kahle hook. What's a good kind and cut of meat to use for this that I can get at a small town grocery store? Chicken? Beef? Pork? I know there's liver, but it can be problematic to keep on the hook. I would probably put a chunk of meat on the hook and give it a shot of Baitmate. This is for smaller channels, like 12-16 inches. One poster on here uses chunks of chicken thighs. And please don't say "USDA Prime New York Strip." smirk

I’ve got friends that can’t throw a net due to shoulder issues and they use these skippies and catch good fish. Not as good as fresh but still effective... texas


There is a fine line between fishing and floating around like an idiot!!

I always have great luck with Blues using chicken breast cut into chunks, and soaked in Strawberry or Cherry Jello, and either add Real Mexican Vanilla, or minced Garlic in the jar. Let it sit a day or two in the fridge, and flip it to get a good soak, Then, divide it up and put it in quart freezer bags, and freeze.

I also do the same with hot dogs, and always catch Channel cat on them. I can literally catch channel cats on these hot dogs, when no one else is catching anything. They tend to prefer the garlic over the vanilla.

Shrimp is my favorite. Peel the shells and head off.

If you like chicken liver, buy some ladies panty hose and cut it into squares. Wrap liver inside square and place on hook. Cheesecloth works too, but is a pain to remove from your hook without scissors. I prefer chicken thighs because of the higher fat content. Same reason for using Bar S hotdogs. Another good bait is fresh cut perch. If you are catching channels, you can catch perch in the same spot.

I guess the Lord needed a fishing buddy more than me.

If you can catch carp around you, they make good cut bait. Lot of fat in them I guess.

Good luck,
Ken

Chicken hearts work great. Very tough and stay on the hook well.
