Dry grits, Is it quick grits or Instant Grits? In a pack bait recipe I want to try, it says to use 1 lb bag of dry grits. I can't find anything at store that says dry grits.

I think the 2:1 ratio is 18 oz instant grits and 9 oz of quick grits. But the recipe is confusing, it doesn't say to use quick or instant grits. It says to use dry grits.

1 lb Bag of Dry Grits
2 Cans Whole Kernel Corn
1/2 Box Instant Mashed Potatoes
2 Cans of Cream Corn
Corn Pops

Drain whole corn, add grits, instant potatoes, and cream corn. Stir by hand until bait is well packed. Add more potato flakes if mixture is too moist. Place Corn Pop on hook and pack bait around it.
uick or instant, it says to use Dry grits. Thats why I don't know which one to use.

Grits Pack, Early spring/late Fall/Big Buff Bait too
Probably the most simple packbait to make.
18oz instant Grits (Quaker).
9oz quick Grits (Quaker).
2 table spoons of Koser salt.
14 oz Cream style corn ( Green giant ).

Dry mix in a bucket with a lid. Pour half the can of corn into the mix, add your flavoring of choice to the remaining half can of corn and stirr and pour into the mix, Mix well with hands and start fishing. Leave the lid on when not using and it will last for at least 8hrs. If left overnight it will dry out and to my knowledge, there is nothing that can be done to bring it back, ( chunk it ).
