For years, I have watched a good old friend of mine, I'll call him Robert, sit and catch channelcat left and right while I was sitting patiently nearby, waiting for the Flatheads to bite.
Well I finally coaxed that old time recipe from him, and now I will share it with you, this stuff works great, stays on a regular hook, and wont stink ya up to bad! this recipe makes about 3 gallons of the stuff, so if ya want, cut it in half!
4 Large Bananas
1 Gallon Maple Syrup
12 1/2 Pounds Flour
4 Pounds Cottonseed Meal
1/2 Gallon Cheddar Cheese ( like ya use on nachos )
( optional ) Small Tub Of Catfish Charlie
Mix and mash all this together in a 5 gallon bucket, then divide up into smaller fishin containers with lids and refrigerate until ya need it, I promise folks this stuff works great!
IT HAS COME TO MY ATTENTION THAT A LOT OF YOU WANTING TO USE THIS BAIT CAN NOT FIND THE COTTONSEED MEAL!
COTTONSEED MEAL CAN BE FOUND AT ALMOST ANY LIVESTOCK FEED MILL OR YOUR LOCAL FEED STORE OR LOCAL FLOWER NURSERY, THIS IS ABOUT THE ONLY PLACES TO FIND IT, SINCE THIS IS A MAIN PART OF THIS RECIPE, IT SHOULD NOT BE SUBSTITUTED.
THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT ON THIS MATTER!
