My dad used to make stink bait. We had a fifty gallon drum about 3/4 full of the foulest smelling stuff in the world. Anything that went rotten went into this thing. If it had maggots they went in too. When ever we cooked bacon it found its way into there. Freezer burnt meatwould be broken into piece and thrown in. It was velvetta consistancy on top and soupy on bottom. The important thing though was not much money was spent and teh catfish loved it. I tried taking worms, powerbait, and mealworms throwing it into a blender and soaking some sucker meat in it. Didnt get to try it because i spent the next few days doing chores around the house because i used my moms blender.
