  • Homemade imitation power bait dough?

    does anyone know any recipes for an imitation to the berkley power dough bait....the stuff that's just a sludge and you glob onto a hook? the really messy stuff. I've got baby food jars and I'm thinking of making some home made trout bait.

    I've never really heard of anyone making an imitation power bait, but I imagine if you made a dough bait like for carp and added plenty of krill scent and glitter, it might have the same effect.

      I would think along the lines of some sort of cookie dough minus and egg or two. Replace what the egg would contribute with smelly jelly, maybe some smashed up night crawlers etc. Funny think to say but I would talk to your mother

          Why? Sounds like alot of work for something so readily available and cheap to get. :think:

          Better to spend your time fishing. Just my $0.02.

            Why? Why not! The way I look at it is any hobby related to fishing is a good hobby, whether it's maintaining the boat, tying flies, building rods, or scouring maps for new fishing holes.

            Besides, who knows, maybe those Pure Fishing scientists didn't take into account some aspects that are special to trout in the PNW.

              I have such a big stack of fishing books and mags that I can't find the frigging article :think:

              I'll dig it up eventually. I just didn't want you to think I forgot...

                I would have to agree... Similar to arguing why go through all this trouble to get them to bite a hook when you can just shoot them with a bow and arrow? Cause it's fun! :dance::dance:

                  We once called them marshmellows. Seriously we would have three or four different colors of mellows at all times. That and an inflated worm. Don't ask how we inflated them:confused:

                      Koke Korn...

                      I flavor and color my shoe peg white corn that I use for Koke's. I took a large rubber made plastic dish that was deep and put a smaller one in side, and it the lid of the smaller one drilled holes (6) the size of those plastic film cans...each can get a different color and scent. The extra space between the large container and the small one is filled with crushed ice.....cold bait is a must. I love this stuff...everyone sharing their special tricks for catching fish. Maybe we should start a new forum "Tricks of the Trade"...hummmmm ? Here are a couple pictures for clarity...

                        :clap: That's a pretty good idea. I have though about going to Green Peter to catch some Kokes and I hear corn is the way to go. If you don't mind I may use that little invention...

                            Well heres another idea. Take some mini marshmallows and get them a little wet and roll them around in garlic powder then jar them up. Ive hooked my limit on that before.

                              I got a recipe:


                              2 cups water
                              1 cup flour
                              1 cup cornmeal
                              ½ cup sugar
                              1 tablespoon garlic powder
                              ¼ pound Velveeta cheese

                              Place the cheese in a small microwave safe bowl and microwave until melted.

                              Mix water, melted cheese, flour, cornmeal, sugar, and garlic powder together in a large mixing bowl until well blended and a heavy dough is formed.

                              Fill a large stock pot with water and bring to a rapid bowl. While waiting for the water to bowl, pinch off enough of the dough to form a small ball and roll it until it forms a ball. Form all of the dough into balls. Drop in a few dough balls into the water at a time. Cook the balls in the boiling water for 1-2 minutes and then place on paper towels to dry off the excess water.

                              Trout will go nuts over the cheese and garlic in this dough bait. Tie on a treble hook and add one of these dough balls. Use a bobber and cast the trout bait into deep pools in the trout stream. Making your own homemade trout dough bait is a great way to catch rainbow trout and it’s one of most fun rainbow trout lures available.

                              I made something like this while expierementing. It smellllledddd like craaaaaaaaaaap with all the garlic in it. But that was late fall so I couldn't use it. Then it went bad by spring. =(

                              Cheese and garlic seem to go together reaaaally well... Yummy I would say. Lol

                                  No problem.Let us know if it works, then the rest of us could fight the feeshes.
                                  Since trout like garlic, could you like sprinkle some grinded garlic from a pier like in hagg?

                                      I have been covertly reading this one for a while, thinking "I dunno". The other night I decided to try this recipe, and another. BARF! It smells good in the beginning, but then it all goes bad. Looks the right consistancy though. Looked really bland when I was done with the other recipe, so I also added a bunch, a whole bunch of neon green food grade dye, and glitter.:dance: My digi is on the fritz so I'll post pics of the tub i made when i can. Haven't used it yet, but the "GooberGreen" looks promising. Don't any of you take my name now,:naughty: say goodbye to Berkley!

                                      You haven't tried it out yourself yet? It is easier than I thought it would be. Never paying 4.50 for a little can o power bait again if I even get 1 stocker at Hagg on it.

                                        BARF is what I thought, like garlic and cheese would smell good together. I haven't been trout fishing lately, only going for shad, bass, and the random fishies at the tualatin river. Not many good trout fisheries within half an hour around here.

                                        Garlic+Cheese=X.X

                                        GooberGreen, that's and awesome name, it's like Cavdad without the green.
                                        I would try some orange and pink if I had food coloring.
