One of my cabin fever activities this weekend was going through my stack of printed articles and recipes. I found several recipes I had to pull out to the top because they are ones I've tried in the past (and really liked), but then went away from them for whatever reason. I'm all about "K.I.S.S.", and it seems like the longer the ingredient list, the less likely I am to try it (or try it again).

There hasn't been much recipe talk here for awhile. There have also been a lot of newbies come aboard this past year. I thought maybe it was time to post some favorites, and hopefully others will too. I'll add some as I can, and give credit when I can remember where I got them.

Starting with simple, here's one of the easiest, with fewest ingredients. I've probably used it more than anything over the last 2 years. I believe it can catch fish anywhere, anytime. Dan Rockel picked up this recipe version somewhere, got me hooked on it, and I've carried boxes of Oats around ever since.

Quick Oats
Old Fashioned Oats
(You can buy the 2-1/2 lb. round boxes at any grocery store about $2+ each.)
Kosher Salt
Creamed Corn

Mix equal parts of the 2 Oats with a handful of salt and as much creamed corn as it takes to hold. Flavor added to the creamed corn or on your method ball is optional, but not needed.

This stuff is deadly fished with one or two fake corn kernels on a hair rig.

Cracked Corn Pack
4 lb. cracked corn
2 lb. oats
2 litre (8-1/2 cups) hot water

stir, then cover for 10 minutes
add ˝ bottle flavor (Superior)

That's one I brought to the top for this year. Was gonna post it myself. Didn't know the origin, but Danny Beck shared it. Look's like a big 'ol dog turd, but works very nicely.

"Carp Crumble" at the baitshop

I thought it was Chicken Layer, it comes in pellets, or fine ground

Joey I have heard of that pack also from Rick :D

Speaking of Rick, Mr. Slinker gave me a recipe before my first ever Fish-in (Monroe day/night, Aug.'05):

1 box Cornflakes (smashed)
1 pack Jiffy Mix (banana nut)
1 can of creamed corn
1 box of banana pudding
Soybean Meal (as needed)
Potato Flakes (if necessary)

"Add in as much soybean meal as it takes to break as fast or slow as you want. If mix is too soft, add in potato flakes. If I use pack, I fish with 1/8 ounce egg sinker and free line it."

I caught my first Fish-in Carp using this in the stormy evening session. Charlie Napier later shared the hot grits on puff recipe that slaughtered the field during the hot, windy day session. He caught maybe eight fish, while the other 15-20 guys caught maybe a total of eight. (Charlie - please post it again as I can't find any of the copies I had. I remember ordering instant, quick and hot cinnamon from Betsy's.)

8 cups Calf Manna
4 cups chick feed
2 cups soy meal
2 cups wheat bran

6 cups hot water

add 2 cans drained wkk right before you start fishing and it's good to go.

I will usually use this one with a cinnimon or an orange spice boilie. I use it without any additional flavoring most times but when the fishing is slow I will apply RWB Legend to the ball. It's been my Ohio River pack for many years now.

Six cups of Super Cast Milliebomb
One forth cup of ground Steam Rolled Oats
One cup of Corn Meal
One Cup of Soy Meal


You can sub the Milliebomb with Japanenee Bread Crumbs and finely ground crack field corn.

Really works well in early spring and late fall.

Here's a millet recipe that The Magnet passed on to me a couple of years ago. It's one I really liked, and need to try again.

3 cups hulled millet
1 cup wheat bran
˝ cup soy meal
1-1/3 cup flour
4 oz. Karo syru
4 oz. liquid flavor (maple syrup, Superiors, etc.)

Mix dry ingredients and set aside.
Mix liquid ingredients and heat gently (do not boil).
Mix liquid into dry ingredients. Let set a couple of hours.
If you use “non-syrup” flavors, may need to add more Karo for binding.
Packs hard as a rock, but breaks quickly. Great fished on a puff or a bead.

Here's one that has produced

2 pounds dried molasses
2 pounds japanese breadcrumbs (sold at Westside)
1 pound wheat bran
water or cream corn

this bait should pack extremely well and still break down quick
