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!

    • Well Thank God for your wife. Shes a saint. 😇
    • 1 x 6 untreated red cedar bds cut to 15" for the weber has worked good for me. You can get lots of cooks on one board.  It's a lot cheaper than getting them at a grill store. The salmon looks good!
    • Yes, it's Food Grade cedar! 😋
    • Seeing the plank brings up a question.   Is that cedar that is sold as cooking planks any different than the stuff sold at the lumber yard for various purposes, like siding or roofing or docks?   
    • solo o... FALTA PESCAAA.. 
    • 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.
