I’ve not had a lotta luck with this. We chase bait marks and hit ‘em with Sabikis. I’ve caught everything but Mini Macs. I have gotten quite a bit of Smelt, which we like. The bait you make will live in the bait tank & swim well. I always say that I’ll take some cat food for chum but we never do. It may help out.
