Catfish can range in size from 0.39 inches long to 10 feet, depending on the species. They’re easy to spot as they contain barbels (whiskers) around their mouths, have smooth, scaleless skin and sharp defensive spines in the shoulder and dorsal fins. Catfish are omnivorous feeders and typically have more than 100,000 taste buds. That’s why this bait works so great!
It’s important to know that catfish can literally taste items up to 15 feet away without biting them.

Liss Surefire Catfish Bait!
* 1 1/2 c. Livers (Chicken, Deer, Cow, whatever you have)
* 1/4 c. Flour
* 2-3 T. Garlic Salt
* 1 Sardine & 2 T. Sardine Oil (from the can)
* 2 tsp Strawberry Jello
* 1 egg
Quickly Blend the liver in a blender until liquid, empty it into an empty, clean PLASTIC peanut butter jar & then add the remaining ingredients. Stir well until thick. Cover.
DO NOT Open INDOORS. Let it sit for at least 48 hours.
DO Not Refrigerate, the more it rots, the better it works; it is, after all, STINK Bait.
** This bait can be used either as a dip bait Or a Rolled bait. If you want to roll balls, I suggest increasing the flour until its the correct consistency.
As a dip bait, this works great on chunks of liver, mini marshmallows, or catfish lures.
If the dip is too thin, cool the bait down. If it’s too thick, add sardine oil 1 T. at a time, stirring well.
Other things that work: Tomato Horn Worms – these are pests from the garden!
When Deepwater fishing, the hornworms work excellent. When bank fishing- the Stink bait is key.
