Fishing is a great stress reliever--make your own bait at home

Homemade Fishing Bait Recipe


You might notice in the weekly fishing reports that anglers using homemade dough baits are successful catching trout.  This past winter at Lake Maloya and Tingley Beach it was a go-to bait for quite a few anglers.  Experienced anglers now that finding the right bait at the right time requires that you have a variety of baits for the fish to choose from.  Once you find the bait the fish want, it's fish on!

Here is a simple homemade dough bait recipe for youth try and add to your arsenal next time you are out fishing.

Step 1:  Melt 1/4 pound Velvet cheese in a small microwave-safe bowl.

Step 2:  In a large mixing bowl mix cheese with:  1 cup flour, 2 cups water, 1 cup cornmeal, 1/2 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon garlic powder.  Mix until everything is well blended and forms a dough.

Step 3:  Pinch off small portions of dough and roll them into individual balls.

Step 4:  Bring a large pot of water to a boil.  lace several dough balls in the water at a time.  Boil dough balls for 1.5  minutes and then remove and place on a paper towel to dry.

It is that simple and now you have garlic cheese dough bait balls ready to catch some trout!  Place the dough bait balls onto small egg-size hooks and fish with a weight and bobber.  Enjoy your day fishing.
