Mineral blocks and Buck Jam

5 posts in this topic

This weekend I put out 2 25lb mineral blocks. About 20yd away from one another. I then pored Buck Jam-Acorn Honey flavor all over both of them. I also poored it around the blocks on stumps, downed trees, and right on the ground. I just learned that some people break the blocks into smaller chunks. Should I have done that? Does anyone know if Buck Jam works? I used it hoping the deer would find the mineral blocks sooner. This is the first time I have ever put down mineral blocks or any type of liquid attractant. I know the only real way to know is to check the spots, but it is three hours away from me, and I wont get a chance to get up there for another two weekends. Based on others experience, will the deer still use the blocks even though I didnt crush them up, and does Buck Jam work?

Yes, they will work.

The "block topper" has worked to get animals interested in the begining for me. Bear seem to like it a little bit.

Have you noticed the mineral mix that (I think BLB) has made and posted on here? Try some of that next time; you will get five times the amount of minerals for half the cost.

I have tried buck jam apple and the corn they didn't seen to work for me. just a regular salt block is what i use now after what they did to the last spot that i had one, they dug a hole that was 4 feet around by 10 inches deep where the salt block was. stick with the cheep salt blocks and you will see what i mean!

I recently put out a mineral block and put stump licker on it and the deer just went nuts for it. I also bought some deer co-caine liquid and put that in a differnet site and they went crazy for that too!!!

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
