Additional Information:

Bait Base: Chow
Bait Type: Packbait
Fish Type: Carp
Best Used: Cooler Months
Water Type: Lake or Pond
Servings 3 Pounds


  • 1 Bucket with lid (A 5-gallon bucket is preferred.)


  • 9 Cups Trout Chow (Either numbers 2 or 3 sizes will do.)
  • 3 oz. Liquid Flavoring (Any flavor you choose.)
  • 16 oz. Clear Karo Syrup
  • 1/4 Cup All Purpose Flour


  • Pour the chow into the bucket and mix in the flour as well.
  • Mix the Clear Karo Syrup and the 3 ounces of liquid flavoring together separately.
  • Then pour the liquid mixture into the bucket and mix very well with the dry parts.
  • Place the lid on the bucket and wait 45 min to 1 hour or so.
  • Open the lid and fluff the bait. It should be ready to use.


This bait needs to set up about an hour before its ready.  It will break up fast in the water.  You might need to dampen your hands a little with water to help when you pack it, so the syrup doesn't stick to your hands as much.

    It take longer than 45m to set up. It take about a week to set. I’m made it 4 hours from the time to fish. When it was time to throw in it would not pack at all.

    1. Thank you for letting me know Kenny. I’ll try and make some shortly and if I have a similar experience, I’ll adjust the proportions.
