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

Flavoring

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's corn and grains mixed with molasses and sold in feed stores as horse feed, but apparently you can use it for carp bait or make whiskey with it.

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
