How much bait??

6 posts in this topic

How much are you guys putting down on your first baiting? How much will it take to start pulling them in? We have 4 55 gallon barrels of candy, and am debating on getting more.

Depending on how much bait you put out and how often you bait would determine how much bait you need. Since the baiting season is a week shorter this year, I would say you should be ok. The group of guys that I hunt with bait almost every day.We have 3 chest freezer full of doughnuts, meat scraps from a local butcher shop, we have a 55 gallon drum full of corn and oats that is fermenting in sugar, we will have another one full of sweet corn and apples, grease, and some dog food.We run about 9 to 10 baits for 6 guys. I like giving the bear as much variety as I can so if you can get your hands on some bait go for it otherwise you should be ok.

How much would you put out if you could only bait once a week to ten days?

At the most I'd stretch it 7 days. It would be hard to get enough bait on to keep them interested past that. I bait every 5 days and put around 150#'s out each time.

boar...to answer your question, all I do is mix the sugar with the oats, add water, use a little yeast and let it sit out in the sun covered up. I have a batch going right now and it looks and smells really good. Next week I will add some apples to the mix as well. We did this last year and the bears seemed to like it a lot.

      I haven't but I'very heard that there have different versions of the clam adapter and Milwaukee has made some changes as well in their design to deal with higher torque ratings.  Give Clam a call with you drill mod4l number and I'm sure they'll be able to help you out with which is the correct for your drill.

      2/26/17   With ice conditions deteriorating, we hit the Crow River for the second weekend in a row. Casting 1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jigs tipped with 3" Berkley Power Grubs in orange and chartreuse combinations, we caught walleyes up to 18" and pike up to 31" as well as a couple carp. Remember, pike and walleyes, as well as bass, are closed in MN now except on most navigable rivers. Also, your fishing license expires tomorrow. I will be giving a seminar at the Home and Sport Show at the McLeod County Fairgrounds on Saturday, 3/4 at 11 am. Will be presenting about walleye fishing on area lakes, but happy to answer questions and talk about anything fishing. Stop in and say hi. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Thats what I'm thinking its what 25-30 years old and stating to not run as good as it used to so putting money into probably won't be worth it vs just buying a whole new auger.
