Instructions

Difficulty: Easy

Things You’ll Need:
  • Chicken livers Sausages Cornflakes Velveeta cheese Worms Blender Bowl Plastic container
  • Chicken livers
  • Sausages
  • Cornflakes
  • Velveeta cheese
  • Worms
  • Blender
  • Bowl
  • Plastic container
Step 1
Combine 1 1/2 pounds of chicken livers and a package of sausages in a blender and mix until it is well blended. This will create a thick meat paste as a base for your catfish bait recipe.
Step 2
Empty 1/2 box of cornflakes or similar cereal into a large bowl.
Step 3
Pour the blended mix of chicken livers and sausages over the dry cereal. You can shake the bowl around a little to let the cornflakes spill over your blended paste.
Step 4
Add a can of Velveeta cheese and a handful of cut up worms. At this point your mixture will look like nothing more than a kitchen experiment gone horribly wrong. Keep at it to create a winning catfish bait recipe.
Step 5
Knead your new bait together with your hands until it feels like wet dough. Put it into a well sealed container and store in a fridge until you're ready to use it during your next catch. It's a good idea to let it warm up in the sun a little before baiting your hook.

Tips & Warnings

 
Save money and buy an inexpensive cereal on sale at the grocery store or a stale box from home. The catfish won't care if it's not the name brand variety. Use gloves while kneading your new bait.
