Cherry Chow A La 3 is an easy carp bait to make and is quite effective for both carp and catfish. The setup time can be a couple hours, but it tends to pack pretty well. You can use it just about any time of the year but tends to do a bit better in cooler weather or at least weather that’s not steamy. You can use Purina chow base number 2 or 3 with this recipe.

  • 1 Bucket with lid A 5-gallon bucket would be best.

  • 3 pounds Purina Trout Chow Either #2 or #3 grade
  • 1 14.75 oz. can of cream corn Generic Brand is fine.
  • 1 14.75 oz. can of whole corn Generic Brand is fine.

  • Pour all the dry chow into a bucket.
  • Open both cans of corn and place them in a mixing bowl.
  • Mix the cool aid packets (all 3) into the bowl with the corn and mix well. It should turn reddish in color.
  • Add the Corn (liquid mix) to the bucket with the chow and mix very well.
  • Place the lid on the bucket and let it sit for 2 hours to absorb some of the liquid.
  • After that, pack around a pickup, like corn pop cereal on a hook and fish.


This is a very simple Cherry chow bait.  It throws pretty easy.  If it dries out, just add a tad bit of water and remix.  You can buy chow at any feed store that is a Purina dealer.
