One of the best types of fish bait is not necessarily the most expensive. Simple bait made of Velveeta cheese may catch you the most fish, depending on where you are fishing, the time of year, and the type of fish you want to catch. Many fishermen like to use Velveeta as bait because fish are attracted to the smell, and the little round Velveeta balls look like fish eggs to them.

Items you will need

  • Fishing rod

  • Split shot weight

  • Treble hook

  • Velveeta cheese

Pinch a split shot weight, the size of a BB, onto the line of the fishing rod just above the snap-swivel.

Use a size 16 to 18 treble hook. These work the best with cheese or bread bait.

Cut or pinch off small pieces of Velveeta cheese.

Form the squares into rounded shapes, so they will look like fish eggs.

Place these rounded forms on each of the prongs of the hook and squeeze each ball slightly so the cheese sticks to the hook and won't fall off easily.

Start fishing.

Periodically check the hook to make sure the Velveeta Cheese is still on the hook.
