I use sun rendered fish oil. I may try mixing it with crayfish oil before too long to see if it is any better.

We will save fish heads and whatever else is left after cleaning through the summer. Thats about as cheep as you can get. I set some using the cheepest chocolate cream filled cookies you can get caught one with that and two grinners.

Chop apples into small squares, place in plastic baggy, add a cap full of vanilla extract and a ton of sugar. One of the best coon baits I've ever used and plenty cheap. You can also put a tablespoon of jelly in there for good measure. Grape works great. You won't attract house cats either.

Only takes about an hour for ours to cool down. Might depend on the grade of bacon you buy? Easier to mix into formulations if its still luke warm though.

On my line bacon grease is a bait not a lure.
