I have tried a few from the store. but it is nice when you get hits on your own. and hear is how it is made. rotten chicken harts with the blood, vanilla extract about a spoon, kerro syrup about 1\4 cup, 1 can nacho cheese sauce, corn meal about a cup, red food color about 3 spoons, and flour to fine tune thickness to liking, clams in a can for fish sent, the option is sardins in oil one can. and this is my take on stink bait, cheap and easy but make it out on the porch. some stink takes a while to go away.
