Sep 10, 2008
Most likely you have heard stories from your grandfather about how he reeled in that giant catfish on some homemade catfish dough bait.

You may have though that he added a few inches or pounds to the fish over the years but it's a good possibility that he didn't. He very well could have reeled in a monster cat on some homemade dough bait. This type of bait is very popular and for good reason.

Bottom line, it works! When something works why change it? There is no doubt this is the reason why homemade catfish dough bait is one of the oldest and most popular baits used when anglers are going after this unique and widely sought after species of fish.

Homemade catfish dough bait will work for all species of catfish. Therefore, it doesn't matter if you are seeking out the flathead, channel, blue, bullhead or white catfish, he will surely take this bait.

If you are an experienced angler, then you have most likely already discovered that the bait you choose will greatly affect the amount of success you have when you go catfish fishing.

However, you may not have had the opportunity to try super homemade catfish dough bait for yourself. Below you will find a recipe for this bait so you can make your own and give it a try.

Recipe for Super Homemade Catfish Dough Bait

Making your own catfish dough bait is not very difficult. You only need a few ingredients and a little bit of patients to make this basic recipe. Once you get the hang of it you will be making your own bait without even thinking about it.

Below you will find one set of instructions used for making this very successful bait.

Start by adding 1.5 cups of cornmeal, a cup of flour and a little anise oil to a pot and place over medium heat. Add about 1/2 of a bottle of big red or similar product. Now stir constantly until the dough becomes stiff and a little sticky.

Lay out some wax paper and sprinkle some flour on it. Pour the dough mixture out on top of the flour and kneed together in the same fashion you would use to kneed dough for a loaf of bread. Continue to add flour as needed over the course of about fifteen minutes.

This process has two purposes. It reduces the stickiness and it causes gluten to form which is what will keep the dough on the hook when you go fishing. You can now freeze the super homemade catfish dough bait until you are ready to use it.

Of course, this is just one variation of the super catfish dough bait. There are many other ways to make it and other ingredients that can be added to the mixture to give it that special touch. You can start with this one and then make changes to the recipe as you see fit, that is the fun of making your own bait.
