Louis Cook’s Groundbait/Particle Bait Combo
• 8 teaspoons peanut oil
• 1 gallon dried field corn
• 2 gallons water
• 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
• 2 teaspoons salt
• Enough water to double the volume in the pot.
• 1 gallon hulled millet
• 3 drops N-Buyteric acid
• 1 teaspoon betaine
Soak the dried field corn overnight in 2 gallons of water.
The next day, in a 32 quart turkey fryer pot, combine the soaked corn, peanut oil, cayenne pepper, salt and remaining water.
Boil until the corn softens–usually 30 to 45 minutes. Add hulled millet and continue to boil for 10 minutes, or until liquid starts to thicken. Turn off heat and allow mixture to cool.
When it cools completely, add flavoring.
Use resulting particle bait mixture as chum, distributing it with a catapult, spod or bait sling. Use the corn kernels as hookbait.
Steve Lojek’s Cornmeal Carp Bait
• 2 cups of cornmeal
• 1 cup of flour
• 1 pint of water
• Flavored gelatin (strawberry is a favorite).
• 2 teaspoons sugar
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
Mix cornmeal and flour in a bowl, and set aside.
Boil water in a saucepan, and add half a package of flavored gelatin to the boiling water. Put the burner on low and add sugar and vanilla extract.
Using a large spoon, completely cover the surface of the water with the cornmeal/flour mixture.
A bubble will rise to the top; when it does, cover the bubble with a spoonful of the cornmeal/flour mixture.
When another bubble appears; cover it. Continue covering the bubbles until all the meal mixture is gone. Stir dough mixture for about 30 seconds.
Remove pan from stove and dump the dough into the foil. Knead the dough as soon as it cools enough, and then roll into a large ball. Wrap the dough in foil, and refrigerate.
This mixture will keep for about a week; pinch off gumball-size pieces of dough and mold around a size 6 hook as needed.
