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.

    • Interesting. I have used it in the past and have better results with nutty butter. SOn in law shot doezilla last week and the fat was unbelievable on her. I saved a few nice chunks and will put it out to see what happens. 
    • yep. first cut them off with the meat saw. Then cut again with hack saw. Then a little bit of filing. Takes a while but no mess.well, not much anyway. lol 
    • Wow, I didn't think single stage versus 2 stage snow throwers would become a Ford vs Chevy conversation.  My take is that for the average home owner with a flat, concrete/asphalt, standard three stall garage wide driveway, the single stage should suffice.  I will continue using my 2 stage at the cabin on the driveway and gravel parking/walkways.   Leech has me concerned on the Honda single stage, so now I just need to determine which to buy.
    • I wasn't planning on going due to the project list getting longer but I took my 7 year old out to sit last weekend. We got home and he was telling his mom all about it and how cool it was seeing deer walk by and how he wished there was more time in the season. That was when the wife asked why I wasn't going to go during muzzleloader and that I should go so I can take him out again. I felt like I had to be a good husband and just agree with her. Sometimes it's about compromising with your wife just to keep the peace in the house. 
    • I would bet that there will be people out on smaller lakes in the Detroit Lakes area this weekend. 
    • If time allows I will get out for a couple walks in the woods with the muzzy.  I didn't get anything with the gun and have yet to buy a bow license cuz time was spent chasing fall walleyes opposed to deer.  Good Luck to those that get out!!
    • Looks nice. You must have to be real careful with the saw to get clean even cuts and the bases.
    • Very cool, love the woodpeckers.  I save fat from my deer to feed them all winter. They seem to prefer that to the store bought suet cakes.
