New Bio Bait thread

Recommended Posts

Dave

GOt out late this afternoon on a small park and rec lake in ROchester.

Found the crappies and a sunfish. They wanted real meat - minnows. Could not get a single fish to bite on the S/M pak of Bio Bait (shiner minnow, right?). I'll keep trying....

The crappies were small, not a single keeper - but they were fish, and it was a nice afternoon.

Uncle Grump,
Yep... at times live bait is just tops! In fact, most all the times!
Thanks for the great report.
Ice Bits is small in profile... but, is evolving as we speak.
Richard is attempting to determing exactly what size & how much "flavor" to add to the product, without having a over-kill situation. The test batch that was sent out is at a "minimum dose" of flavor. We wanted to determine the results on that amount and the effect.
I am going to ask him to "kick it up a knotch" and add more prae flesh... to the next batch he makes for testing (which is very easy done).
Shoot me your name & address in an email to: [email protected] and I'll send you some "full sized" samples to try out for us. I will appreciate your reporting on that one also. I am curious to see if SIZE helps trigger the fish. Thanks much for helping us test this product!

I had one pack returned where the label was removed and had two that did not get delivered... perhaps you were one of those three.
Please email me with your shipping address & user name and I will try again. Sorry for your dissapointment and wait.

I would like to add one tip when using Bio Bait.
After you have the bait soaked and soft squeeze the bag to get any remaining water out before freezing it.
You won't end up with a block of BIo Ice and it will be easier to pick off a piece to use when frozen.
This also helps to keep the flavor longer.
I have been having success with Bio Bait but fresh bait has worked better most times out.
What I like about Bio Bait most is I can have several flavors along and experiment with what the fish are responding to most.
The other day i found that the fish were really responding to the crayfish flavor.They would race to it while not reacting to minnow heads at all.
I keep 5 different flavors with me all the time so I can fine tune what the fish want.

Wondering if anyone has tried Bio Bait on trout and if you had success? If so did it outfish other "live" baits? From reading the threads, it seems live bait usually outfishes Bio Bait but doesn't have the portability or the convenience. The kind of thing you keep in your tackle box when you are in a pinch.

A ZEN MASTER

Hey Dark30, ya I have and I'm planning on getting a few for next spring. I've also got my eye on those Super Do's, Monster Do's and Kick-N Craw. I wander if they will work as good as my top secret lure did on big browns last summer. Cann't wait to find out!

    • Anyone been out this past week? My bird hunting has been cut short this year so I am depending on others to keep me up to date. My wife has Breast Cancer and is starting radiation treatments soon, lasting a good part of October. I may be able to do some deer hunting depending how she is feeling. She has had surgery and the outlook is great and she feels great so that's the main thing. Good luck to all you hunters.
    • dont everyone post at once!!!!!!🤣😂 hummers bailed from itasca county, got a couple still around cold spring, seen them yesterday. but i havent seen any robins in a while. anyone else???????????????????????????????????
    • My routing was keep all the drive train zerks greased every few outings, change oil & filter yearly and front and rear diff by-yearly unless I did a lot of swamp running.  There are a bunch of helpful videos on the Tube. 
    • I was out today putting up a deer stand and came across a lobster mushroom. I don't think I have seen any this late before. I will be enjoying the little gem tonight.
    • thanks for the write-up - and great pics!  hopefully these stories will keep me interested until i have my own west hunt.   good luck to all
    • Always enjoy the "out west" write ups!!!  I really appreciate you taking the time to share your journey!! 
    • Well I wasn’t going to do any fluid changes untill next fall but it’s been a little more than a year and I just clicked 1k miles. About 30-40 hours since last oil change. I think I’m just going to do it. So last time I just took it to a dealer but it’s expensive, the machine is gone for at least a week and it’s a hassle to deal with dropping off and picking up. So I think I’m going to try it myself. I’ve changed oil on things many times before so this isn’t anything new. I’m going to get ahold of my dealer and see what I need and have them walk me through the steps. I want to change the oil, the front and rear gear case oil and I’d like to do the transmission fluid also. I also just saw Polaris has a deal now through the 1st of oct for $10 off an oil change kit. So I think I just need an oil change kit and a quart of gearcase oil? I also have a new spark plug I’ll through in and go through the machine like I always do every few months. I know @leech~~ had a magnum what did you always do for maintence? 
    • enjoyed the story but this view is incredible  your lucky you get to hunt there
    • Not unlike most years.....
