what type of packbaits can you make with sweet feed?

Recommended Posts

60 oz. Cracked Corn

60 oz. Layer Crumbles (Chicken feed)

90 oz. Sweet Feed


¼ cup Sea Salt

¼ cup Brown Sugar


Soak cracked corn for 24 hours, add a quart or more of water then boil for 30 minutes. Take off heat and add flavoring of your choice (8 oz bottle of Superior or 3 oz of R&W/One On is about right) sea salt and brown sugar and mix well. Put it in a bucket and add sweet feed and layer crumbles and stir well. This will make a lot of packbait/method mix. It freezes well, so you won't waste any.

It depends on what part of the country you come from as to what is sold to you as sweet feed. Out West it looks like pellets and assorted grains with molasses added, east coast it is dark red/brownish pellets. We get the pellet type here. If the OP gets the grain type of sweet feed he can check out this video for help...  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rqUDWdopnDI

Blue Seal course 14......

My oat method mix/ pack bait

1 large tub old fashioned oatmeal 

Equal part Sweet feed 

I medium tub panko bread crumbs

3 cans creamed corn 

4 handfuls cooked hemp seed or birdseed

Flavor of choice  (jello pack,  vanilla extract,  anise extract, maybe a can of crushed pineapple,  ...added to creamed corn)

Maybe a tablespoon of chili powder  or two.

Use maize juice for added moisture  or lakewater

Welcome to the forum.  The recipe in the post right above yours looks pretty good.  Because it's for packbait and not chow, you might have to add extra feed or use less creamed corn.  It takes a bit of trial and error to get what you want.  I hope you get on the fish!  As a general rule of thumb, when I'm making groundbait I like to add something sweet, something salty, and something with chili.  Are you going to be fishing paylakes?  We've had a few members asking about them and it would be nice to see some pics of what it's like.

Good grief, I'd forgot all about Dunkel, Hey Dunkel! Hope things are good.
