Strawberry Jell-o is a key ingredient in homemade catfish bait. According to Bobberstop.com, such homemade bait uses just basic household ingredients and requires very little preparation time, making it a simple and affordable alternative to store-bought baits.
Combine the instant oatmeal, strawberry Jell-o and water in large bowl.
Stir the ingredients together until well blended.
Pour the mixture into a plastic bag and seal tightly.
Press the mixture into a flat slab and let it sit for two to three days.
Roll the mixture into marble-sized balls and attach one ball to each hook to use as bait.
- If the mixture does not hold together well, try rolling it into individual balls and chilling them in the refrigerator for one hour to help them set.
