This is not a

unless you are part buzzard. I am serious , this catfish bait really
However if you like to catch lots of channel catfish , then maybe you
to think about it.
Don't try to
make this stuff unless it's
hot outside. I live in Texas and wait till at least July to start.
36 lbs hog brains
40 lbs cheese (use 60 lbs for thicker bait)
1 gallon shad or other small baitfish
Use what ever
kind of cheese you can get.
Cheddar, Colby, Jack have all gone into it in the past. 40 lbs is the
amount of cheese I would use and it will be runny at that. 50 or 60
make better bait for warmer weather.
Put the hog
brains out in the sun for 2
or 3 days. If you start with soured brains , it will speed the process

it into the catfish punch bait. A wad stays on the hook for a long time.
I make this bait
every other year and it's
always better the second year. This makes a lot of bait and you could
cutting the amounts back. In the 20 or so years I have been using this
, I have never caught anything but a channel catfish on it.
A meat market
can order the brains for
you. The cheese is a little trickier. I found a wholesale cheese dist.
and they sell me moldy or out of date cheese for 50 cts a pound. If you
