1 pound roasted peanuts in the shell
3 Tbs of peanut oil or corn oil
1 box jello (strawberry, cherry,etc.)
Boil about 6 quarts of water. Add entire bag of peanuts and oil. Boil for about an hour to two until shells are tender. Drain and let cool. Use one cup of the water drained off the nuts to prepare jello mix. Do not let jello cool though. Take about 3/4 of the peanuts and put into a food processor or blender and thouroughly chop up. Add to jello and mix well until you have a nice doughy mess. Drain any excess jello. Put into baggies and freeze. Take the remaining peanuts and use them as they are for finicky carp or chum.

1 Cup of plain flour
1 1/2 Cup's yellow plain corn meal
1/4 Cup sugar
1 cup of water
Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. Add water a little at a time until you have the right consistancy. Divide your dough into 4 small balls. Pat balls into about an inch thich circle. Put a pan of water on the stove with enough water to cover 2 circles of dough. Boil 3 miutes, test by sticking a knife in the center, you don't want it to mushy. Take dough out of boiling water and cut into peices. let cool enough to handle. Now is the time to add your favorite scent. Vanilla, strawberry jello, garlic, honey, Maple syrup, or bourbon if you fish next to a distilery. Kneed dough together. You may need to sprinkle with additional water to form a dough that will not come off the hook.
One Cup Corn Meal
One Cup Flour
Once Cup Instant Oatmeal
3/4 cup of sugar
Water (amount varies: 2 to 31/2 cups, more or less depending on preference).
Maple Syrup (amount varies)
Add dry ingredients first and then add desired amounts of water and syrup, depending on the thickness you prefer. The sweetness is the keystone of the bait. It won't harm to taste a tiny bit of it. If the bait doesn't stay on the hook and you're out on the water with no thickening agent, always bring a small piece of cheese cloth or wire screen, and wrap them around the baited hook with the hook point sticking out.
2 cups flour
8 tablespoons of sugar
1 bottle (16 oz) karo syrup
1 fl oz strawberry flavor
1 bag of yellow cornmeal
Mix ingredients and then put in the freezer for 1 hour before using them
