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!

    • Mmm mm Thanks!!!!!!!!
    • your package went in the mail today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Figured I'd loop back on this with an update.  I ended up getting the Weber Spirit 3 burner.  Picked it up at Ace Hardware.  Its the same price everywhere ($449) but Ace will assemble it, deliver it, and haul away the old one for no charge.  Bought it Saturday morning had it sitting on the back patio by 3pm that same afternoon.   I ended up looking at a lot of grills including many brands of gas grills, pellet grills, and some charcoal grills.  There were some other gas grills that I liked, they looked to be made solidly from good materials and they came at a decent price.  However, they all lacked a decent warranty.  The webers use less stainless steel than some of the others and I'm not 100% sure what the china production will do to the quality and longevity of a Weber but they do come with the best warranty that I saw.  I believe grates and flavorizer bars have a 5 year warranty and everything else has a 10 year warranty.  Customer service and part availability was also a big selling point.  Weber parts look to be easily available and if you do end up having to replace the grate, flavorizer bars, and burners it will only set you back $150 which should get you many more years out of the grill.    I let my almost 3 year old son pick the color since he came with to help pick it out.  I couldn't argue with his choice of red.  It is clearly the fastest looking grill, now I just need to add a racing stripe. 
    • Saturday morning I was able to put my tag on a nice bird. If I did no get to put some scouting time in I would of moved too fast. I knew these bird was going to show up but he never made a peep on roost or the ground. I was able to call in the hens with him following. The hens yelped twice on the ground and that was it. Had other birds gobbling but I knew this guy was around. It was him with 3 Jakes and 3 hens that pretty much stayed by themselves and nothing to do with the larger group of birds. I was able to see him the Saturday before opener and trail cameras showing he was coming through around 720 each morning. I shot him at 7:15 plan worked out great. 20 Gauge is becoming my favorite gun for turkeys. He was just a couple oz’s shy of 24lbs. double beard 11inch, spurs 1inch. Some big birds dropping. My dads was 25lbs and Protourbait above 24. Might head back to NE this weekend see how the week goes. I have WI left for a couple tags.
    • I personally don't use hens often.  When I do she's in a breeding position near a strutting tom.  I usually go jakes of various postures or no decoys.  I like to keep them guessing where that hen is at.  I've had too many mature Tom's hang up, strut and gobble until the real hens show up to escort him away when using just hens.
    • What would be the reasoning behind just using hen\ hens decoys? To put the toms at ease? I usually use the standard hen / jake combo.
    • Nice!   Yep, that looks just the way I hope to find em!  Nada for me but maybe if I get some time in the turkey woods I’ll have some better luck.
    • That's one cut I need to do on the pellet smoker. Everything so far has turned out real moist and tender,  I'm guessing since the door seals up so tight. I prefer as well to slice that day, the leftovers can go in the crockpot for shredding.. I better go get one.
    • Num that looks awesome. Bet the carcass would boil up to make a mighty fine tasty soup too!
