What is Punch Bait and How it works!
Punch Bait is a cheese based bait similar to common dip baits, but what makes CJ's punch bait stand out from the rest is our Ingredients. We use cattails which is a cotton like Fiber that when mixed into the bait forms a adhesive and allows you to fish with a simple 3 way treble hook, and no need for a sponge. The bait clings to the hook and enables you to go longer duration with out re baiting the hook. The more time you spend re baiting the Less time you spend in the water. It also allows you to fish in faster currents of water like rivers and streams. Without worrying about your bait falling off like liver or cut baits tend to do. The best part about our punch bait, that most wife's will agree and the reason it gets its name, Is that you don't have to touch it with your hands. All you need is a stick, place your treble hook on top and PUNCH it in. That's it! We suggest pulling the hook out at a angle to get more bait on the hook.. Our punch bait comes in 5 different flavors. Shad, Monster, Crawdad, Minnow and Wilder Hopper.
Here at CJ's we've taken a long time developing these flavors to ensure no matter the climate, season, or geography of your state lakes,ponds and rivers. We'll have something for every catfish angler.
