~Just a reminder: Try to avoid baiting excessively when using Bait Binder. Use two hockey puck sized balls per pole. Any more and you will be feeding the shrimp for many hours after you finish shrimping. If the shrimp are there, two balls per stiff pole is all you need.
~Boulineau's (N. Myrtle), West Marine (N. Myrtle), Charleston Angler (all), Lake Murray Hardware (Ballentine), and West Marine (Columbia) have received deliveries. Pawleys Island Outdoors and Charleston Marine also have product. All of your favorite locations will be stocked by August 31.
~Thanks to SC Sportsman for an excellent ad (page 11).
~Happy Shrimping!

I have always used clay and fish meal to make bait. What is baitbinder and how does it perform compared to clay/fish meal?

Hey Small Net...Baitbinder is a cleaner, easier bait to use. We've had as good or better luck with it as fish meal/clay mix. I like that I can mix it up easily on the way out as opposed to sitting round the campfire before leaving the dock. Washes off your hands easier and doesn't smell as strong. We tried it a couple years ago and won't go back to fish meal.As far as cost, I believe a large bag is 24.99 pretty much everywhere and it goes a long way. Try it and see. I have other buddys that do the clay/dog food clay/fish meal mixes and I see no large differences in any of them.IMHO my 2 cents

It lasts longer than clay/fish meal does. I was still pulling up bait balls 5 hours later that looked almost the same size as when I threw them in. It is much cleaner and less expensive as well. I'll never go back.

Roughly 60 per bag...We make 2 per pole and it lasts 3 trips, and we make them about the size of a tuna can.

Smell it. If it still smells like fish, it should be okay. I had some a couple of years ago that "turned", it smelled kind of like ammonia. I don't imagine that would have attracted many shrimp.

DFreedom,
That batch a few years ago got 2 families very sick...the mother and son went to ER due to swelling of face and hands..she ate shrimp for years NO allergies.. ate a older batch no problem...they opened the raw shrimp and they smelled like amonia...and they were iced down after caught..

The brother in law said there was no way that the binder could be bad...he got sick...possibly it was just a bad batch..if it smells bad we should chunk it....how long can we keep this stuff?

It's like mixing Sakreet/cement....you put in a little water and mix. Add a little more, use care not to turn your mixture into soup. Best to mix it in a separate container and keep your source material bucket dry.

Creekgirl,
I am sorry to hear that folks got sick. Bait Binder will keep as long as it is not introduced to moisture. A few drops in the bag while shrimping or condensation can be enough. Be sure to protect unused portions from moisture while shrimping. Store leftovers in an area out of the sun and away from drastic temperature changes if possible.
If you don't go shrimping enough to use all of your Bait Binder within a two year span, use it in the crab trap, minnow trap, or for chumming fish. It is also a great catfish bait. Obviously, there could have been a number of factors at hand, but Bait Binder shelf life is very good when stored properly.

it's much faster and cheaper in the long run, used to cost me just as much for the fish meal and a bag of clay

way back when we just used pluff mud and dog food, that was cheap n worked excellent too! but it's as time consuming as mixing your own fish meal/clay

baitbinder is quick, that time savings alone is worth it to me

and the 1/2 size bucket comes in very handy afterwards...

'bout time

I personally use bait binder and would highly recommend it to anyone from novice to seasoned vet. I buy it in bulk when I can find it. Its not a question if it performs better and if its easier and less bulky and less messy the only question is why do more people not use it.lol. but in my eyes thats better for me less competition......

I have seen the light and will never go back to clay and meal. Bait Binder works wonders. Last season pulled up a couple of patties that had been down for three hours and still looked good. Gave them a massage and back they went.
