Catfish Soap Bait Recipe

Catfish are exciting to catch and can often be very large, making them good sport for anglers. The meat is often breaded and fried. One of the most popular baits used to target catfish is soap bait. People used storebought soap as bait when it was made of lye and animal fat, but storebought soaps are no longer made of lye and have other ingredients that will not attract catfish. The recipe here adds an ingredient that catfish love. Wear the following when working with lye: eye protection, longsleeved shirt, long pants, rubber gloves and closed shoes (not sandals).

Put the fat in a pot and melt it on a stove at medium heat. Remove the fat from the heat once it is melted and allow it to cool. If it cools too much and becomes solid, melt it again.

While the fat is melting put the water in the glass container. Add the lye to the water by stirring it in. Never add water to lye. You will have a reaction that will cause the lye to splatter. Be careful when handling the lye; it is caustic and can cause serious burns.

Combine the fat with the lye mixture, stirring until it becomes thick. Stir slowly so air is not introduced. If air gets into the mixture the bait will float. You can use a sinker on your fishing line if this happens to get the bait to the bottom. Use only enough of the fat to get a thick paste from share here.
