Bio Bait test report

Recommended Posts

I finaly got out to try the bio bait. I tiped small jigs with it,used it on on a dropper jig,and put some on a treble dropper under a small jigging spoon. On the single jig I had alot of fish come up and inspect it but wouldn't take it. On the dropper jig it was the same as the single jig. On the treble dropper under the spoon I had better luck,catching Crappies and Perch. The Bio bait worked better than Waxworms this day but spikes were the bait that produced the most. I would say the Bio bait worked very well in a shy bite situation,when the fish only wanted a small offering. This test was done in a backwater area of the Mississippi river near Wabasha.

I have been playing with different flavors of Bio Bait.
I have been testing them against live bait,(minnows, euro's,and waxies) and have found that Bio Bait has been almost keeping up with live bait.SOme days bait is much better and some days Bio Bait keeps up with the live bait.
There is one exception.THe crayfish flavor gets reactions from fish wheather they are shy or not and keeps up with or out produces live baits the majority of the time.This flavor is becoming my favorite! smile.gif
I have always been a fan of crayfish but its only leagal to use them from the waters that you are fishing.I thinks its great that with Bio Bait I will no longer have to go splashing in the shallow water to catch my own.Plus now I can get "crayfish" in the winter!

For panfish I just tear off a small chunk and for cats I have been using the entire hunk.
I think that the bouyancy of the Bio Bait(it creates a very slow fall and different profile on some ice flies) along with the crayfish scent really turns shy panfish.They race towards the offering where when using waxies or euro's I am getting a slower or no reaction.

I've caught some keeper Crappies on Clear lake and two private ponds. Nightcrawler seems to work good for me. Keep Catch-n

So far my best presentation using bio bait was with a ratso. Sunnies seemed to like that. Was in 13 feet of water, fishing at 11 feet. As with other presentations using Bio Bait, I had a lot of lookers come up off the bottom. Maybe I need to practice more with jigging methods.

I have ordered some and tried it once -- so far so good! Any local (north metro) bait/tackle stores carry the bio-bait? Or is it only available on-line?

Thanks -- Great product!

I have been over to our local trout arena checking on the bite business. I have tried the bio-bait krispies, but they will not turn a trout for me. The regular bio-bait in night crawler and in minnow have each taken a brookie while fished on a jigged 1/16 ounce lil' cleo- gold w/orange stripe. The lake has crappies and sunfish along with some largemouths and the krispies did get one each bass and sunfish plus numerous crappies. Trout don't seem to care for them, but then it may be this weather too. Who knows.

Sure life happens- why wait....The Crapster....good fishing guys!

    • 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.....
