Fishing that funny stuff that looks like Rice Krispies

Recommended Posts

Yup went to lake Washington today, so I figured I would put that funny looking Bio-Bait stuff to the test. The way I looked at it the Bio-Bait was going to be a back up for me in case I forgot the waxies. That is if it could pass the test. Well I had two holes so Bio-Bait gets the left hole for a 1/2 hr and waxies the right, then switch every half hour.
Results: Bio-Bait withstood the test I caught about 1/2 my fish on Bio-Bait, it didn't matter which hole. I caught about 45 sunnies, the biggest 9" was caught on Bio-Bait, but it was an even split or as close as you can divide 45 in half smile.gif Crappies were a different story all but one came on minnows the other on Bio-Bait. I did this test the last hour I fished (after the sunnie test). Only 6 fish were caught during this test all 9 to 10". Here the minnows caught the bigger ones, but it was nice to know I could get crappies on Bio-Bait. During both tests I only used the small Bio-Bait packet. Looking back maybe I should have used the large packet for the crappie test. Oh well there is always tomorrow. I did get one walleye to the ice during the crappie test but she broke off the 1lb line I was using right at the hole.
Sorry Dave the walleye came on a minnow.
Summery: This stuff really works and I will get more. A backup for now but who knows this old live bait guy may switch to all Bio-Bait one day.............Nah. grin.gif

Good Luck & Good Fishing. Lucky

Thanks for the great report!
I figure Bio-Bait will never replace live bait in my boat either!
But... it is sure good to have a bit of this stuff tucked away for the day when I do run out of live bait! Not good to be out of bait!
Bio-Bait also allows me to fish with "crayfish"... which I can not do in MN! I love that.

    • Well Thank God for your wife. Shes a saint. 😇
    • 1 x 6 untreated red cedar bds cut to 15" for the weber has worked good for me. You can get lots of cooks on one board.  It's a lot cheaper than getting them at a grill store. The salmon looks good!
    • Yes, it's Food Grade cedar! 😋
    • Seeing the plank brings up a question.   Is that cedar that is sold as cooking planks any different than the stuff sold at the lumber yard for various purposes, like siding or roofing or docks?   
    • solo o... FALTA PESCAAA.. 
    • Last friday of lent and Coborns had a flash sale on fresh salmon so I put some on my overpriced pellet grill.   Good thing my wife talks me into sacrificing eating meat on Fridays of lent, you know, for Jesus.    
    • Got up early and put this small piece of brisket on my overpriced pellet smoker. I've never done one this small but my buddy who owns a meat market gave it to me at half price to get rid of it. It's  almost foiling time now at 10:30 am.
    • I’m in St. Cloud for Easter weekend, and decided to check out nearby Little Rock Creek. I had very low expectations. There’s a few easements, and a nice little wildlife management area, but the creek really isn’t very fishable. Water was pretty high, and banks were flooded. Overhanging brush would make fishing impossible in summer. Didn’t catch anything. Wasn’t disappointed though. Now I know not to bother again. Was still a nice morning for a walk in the country.
    • Haha. So, her boots kept falling off so much (several sizes too big), she eventually put them on the wrong feet. I tried telling her that, which is always a losing battle on my part. I thought maybe, that if they were on the wrong feet, they would stay on better. They did not.   This is the best time of year to take kids out trout fishing. No leaves on the trees, brush is still dead and matted down, so casting and walking are super easy.
