bio bait report

Recommended Posts

Dave,
I have tried the bio bait several ti,es as of late and found the crappies I have been catching have almost exclusively been on minnows. To be honest it is hard to use the bio bait when everyone else is catching crappies on minnows.
We are panning a trip to Lake Alexander near Randall to try for some Walleyes and I plan on trying the bio bait tipping the jigging spoons and raps.
The product holds up so well that I have frozen it and thawed and freeze and thaw several times and it is still useable.

I used it on some of my best perch and sunfish lakes over the last week and had good results.
The bio bait is much harder for the smaller perch and sunnies to steal then wax worms and minnows, and as a result I spent more time fishing and less time rebaiting.
I didn't catch fish on the bio bait all day, but I did catch fish on it when they didn't want anything else.

Thanks for the great report... any report we get back is "great"!
Bio-Bait and Ice Bits is in its infantsy... and is evolving as we speak.
Richard is attempting to determing exactly 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 another & quite different sample to try out for us. I will appreciate your reporting on that one also. I am curious to see if we are on target. Thanks much!

When they want meat, boy it can be dang tough to convince them otherwise.

Try this just for the heck of it once. Separate a few morsels of the bio baits into a separate baggy.

Now take a couple of them slower moving minnows in the pail and smooch them up and toss them in with the Bio Baits. The meaty scent quickly transfers into the Bio Baits, then try them again.

I have been doing this with the leftover Bio Baits on some very fussy darn Goldeye, and they will fall for it. Goldeye can be every bit as, or more then, as fussy as a sneaky crappie.

I carry a few smaller hook pouch style zip-lock bags with me, just for this meat saturation trick. They are also handy to store meat morsels anytime, and lighter then toting the minnow pail around when hole hopping.

Give it a go, see if it will pan out for you too.

    • 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.
    • Very nice. You need to start making Youtube fishing videos with them now like #fish_time does with his kids!  😀 You can tell their fishing with Dad and not Mom.  Did you help your daughter with her boots Dad? 😄
    • Had a couple hours, so I brought my 2 younger kids out to enjoy the nice afternoon. River is a little high yet, but still pretty cloudy. I guess it was flooded pretty good yesterday. Rain must have washed in lots of food, because every trout had a big fat belly. I caught 5, and my son caught 1 (all browns). All of them on a largemouth bass colored husky jerk, which is my new favorite trout lure. Me and the kids finished the day covered in mud, and had a great time!    
    • Seeing whats working for everyone using decoys for mn. opener. My new whiteface DSD jake had 2 toms come in for my 10 year old grandson, Jeffrey. Whats working for everyone else? When using hen/jens only decoys, how do you set them and what do you use etc. Like upright and feeder???? Just seeing.
