Maybe there's no sharks in N.E. Florida in May...??
May 8, 2014
In 5 trips, I have made a 10 pound bag of this LAST...I mixed up a 4 & 6 pound ball. And then used it all week. I'm in the charter biz in Jacksonville Florida and sharkin' is one of my many J-O-B-S. The water temps 70, there's bait all around. So why one shark in a week of beach drifting, mixed with inlet fishing, and then even shark fishing offshore? I WISH I KNEW! It's certainly NOT a given, that this will bring them from 7 miles away.
What I did is use a ball made, and then saved a melted ball back into the good bag they give this to you in. The longer it is mixed, the harder the ball of the 2 parts gets. And the slower it melts away....
BUT, you better have sharks in the area, 1st off. I have no idea what is going on here where I fish.
But MAY is usually all ya want in "man-eaters", but I guess not so, this year.........2014. Blame it all on "climate change" the new buzz word for things gone very wrong!
So until, this stuff actually produces "a day to remember", I give it 3 stars. AND YES, will come back and review again with proof.
I have even used the Chum Cloud oil at the same time.......without any significant results.
Pros:Easier to store than "frozen block chum". Easier to make, That's a given. Easy to make ahead of time........go too long and it really lasts, as it turns to asphalt like stuff.
Here's a Youtube Video link I did, about making it: http://youtu.be/d-P6gf8H5Ho
Comes in a gallon of Liquid form. I have some, but have no tried it yet.
Cons:Not as easy to find as frozen block chum. My local bait shop has never even heard of it! Chum, like Shrimp is sold at bait shops. But these (bags of various chums from Aquatic Nutrition Inc. are not everywhere.) YOU have top think ahead.
The longer it seems to be set up and not used while stored in the bag it comes in. The harder and slower it seems to melt away releasing the so called 7 mile slick of blood scent.
They say, "smells like death"....I have smelled a lot worse!! A barracuda smells worse, gutting a shark smells worse. Maybe death doesn't smell?
Okay, what's next? I'm practically a professional "Research and Developer". I love doing R&D, because I can. I fish for a living....so maybe I ought to not try Blood chum, because sharks don't eat Blood, they eat ......FISH! ?
