Old School Catfish Dip Bait Recipes

Jun 18, 2008
Making your own catfish bait is both fun, and cost-effective. There are 1000s of recipes out there, but here are some of my favorites. Feel free to mix and match. Be creative.

Cheesy Minnow Bait
Melt 1 lb. of Velveeta cheese for about in microwave, then chop 6-8 oz. of raw pork. Chop 1 head of garlic and add garlic salt, mix in 1 can dog food, add 1 dozen minnows and enough flour to give a dough consistency. Mix in a food processor. This bait works best on treble hooks or bait tubes.

Catfish Perfume
In a blender mix about. 2 dozen dead (and old) minnows, and 1/4 C of the water they were in, along with 1/2 Cup Parmesan cheese, 1 box cherry jello, 1/4 C molasses, 3 Tablespoons of onion salt and garlic salt, 1 cup bread crumbs, and 3 Tablespoons of soy sauce. Add flour to thicken, then work into a dough and place in baggies. To use, roll intoin 1 inch balls and use on a treble hook.

Ictalurus Hor'deouvres
In 1/4 cup boiling water, add 3 beef bullion cubes. after they dissolve, add 3 oz of old lunch meat, and 3 Tablespoons of garlic salt and onion powder, 5 slices of bread, 4 Tablespoons of of melted peanut butter, 20 crackers. Place in a blender and mix. place in and airtight container in a cool place. Use as a ball on treble hook.

Ictalurus Pate

Mix 1 lb of aged in the sun chicken livers and 1 package of hot dogs together in a blender and mix. This may be best performed outside or with wife gone. In a gallon jug place a half a loaf of bread torn into bite size pieces, pour the liver and hot dog mix over it. add 2 cans of nacho cheese, 1 can corn, 1/4 bottle of Tabasco,and a dozen worms cut up, to the mix. next get rubber gloves and pour this mixture out and knead good until it gets thick and a dough like consistency. Store in the sun, in a large plastic container, and handle with care.

Cry Me A Liver Bait

Thaw out a package of frozen chicken livers. Lay liver out in layers, sprinkle a heafty amount of garlic salt on it. Add next layer so on and so forth until the liver is all used. Cover the livers with something that won't touch them, like a lid. Let them sit for a couple hours outside. It doesn't have to be in the sun.

After a couple hours take the liver and dump into a bucket and start stirring, every 3 or 4 stirs add some more garlic. Do this until you have about 1/4 cup of garlic left. Put it in the garage for about 9 or 10 days, make sure its covered.

When you get ready to use it dump the rest of the garlic salt in, stir, and go fishin. The salt will make the livers tough, and leather-like.. Use on a #2 Aberdeen hook.. You can substitute Anise, or Vanilla for the Garlic if you want to try something different.
