Sometimes trappers and our dealers complain that a certain batch of PREDATOR PLUS BAIT is thinner than the last jar or batch they got.
We can’t control the amount of liquid in the meat we get for the base of PREDATOR PLUS.‘Cat meattaints at different levels of liquid depending on many factors, barrel it’s tainted in, what part of the US it was tainted in, humidity levels, on and on.
We get ‘cat meat from the southwest US, upper Midwest and who knows where, thus, I can’t control the liquid content 100%.
Horse meat base (Mr. Ed) is worse yet !You have to just about drain horse meat on a screen, (keeping maggots off..yeah,. try that one) before you can work with horse meat !
So, if your jar of PREDATOR PLUS isn’t as thick as you like, simply add corn starch, potato starch, flour, corn meal or even the gray type of night crawler bedding to thicken it up. This will NOT hurt the bait or spook predators. They don’t care !
*The gray type of worm bedding sold at big box sporting goods stores is simply pulverized newspaper and is an acceptable thickener.
Plain old Vaseline will thicken the bait in an acceptable way also, and, help you in wet weather. Melt it first, then stir it in.
If the bait is too thick for you, (rare), add glycerine, glycol or urine to thin it.
Again, the addition of the above ingredients to thicken a bait will not hurt the bait or lure or spook the critters. Go to it !
