Steve found this company called Dark Water Premium Baits and decided to go test it our on the Ohio river a couple of days ago. This catfish bait was made of prepared and cured Asian carp.

So do you think Asian Carp is a good alternative to fresh bait for catfish? Steve Douglas seems to think so.

00:00 hey what’s up guys i’m on ohio river
00:02 today
00:03 and uh we’re going to try a couple
00:04 different things it’s a
00:06 first part of august and i’m going to
00:08 try a new bait that we just discovered
00:16 it’s actually asian carp and it’s dark
00:19 water premium baits
00:22 looks like we have some asian carp
00:23 garlic infused
00:25 and just plain asian carp and we do have
00:27 some frozen skipjacks but we’re gonna
00:29 try for the first two hours
00:30 to use nothing but this manufactured
00:32 stuff let’s prepare stuff so
00:34 hang tight we’re gonna get some baits in
00:36 the water we’re gonna suspend a few
00:37 baits
00:38 uh we was gonna try to drag but there’s
00:40 a little bit more current and wind that
00:41 i
00:42 thought there was gonna be so we’ll just
00:44 have to suspend most of our baits until
00:45 we
00:46 get to another situation we can drag i’m
00:48 going to try this
00:49 age and just regular asian carp
00:52 right off the bat
00:56 and this stuff’s been in packages for
00:57 quite some time
01:01 but i guess the trick would be to open
01:05 it this way instead of just dousing into
01:07 it because it is in a ziploc bag
01:16 my first uh reaction i thought was going
01:19 to be really bad but
01:21 it’s not it actually it actually smells
01:24 like more like
01:25 berkeley power worms or something i come
01:27 from a bass
01:28 background so i kind of quit bass
01:32 fishing when berkeley power worms kind
01:33 of come out
01:34 in that era so but that’s what it smells
01:36 like
01:37 not bad at all let’s see if the catfish
01:39 are going to like it
01:41 all right i’ve also got my logistics
01:43 manager from monster rod holders with me
01:45 today
01:45 ryan what are we doing today ryan
01:49 well just getting a couple poles rigged
01:51 up to suspend
01:52 um and get some bait out there
01:56sure some of this asian carp
02:10 i’m kind of excited to see if it’s going
02:11 to work oh it’s tough too
02:13 i don’t think it’s going to have a
02:14 problem coming off your hook
02:17 we’ll try this size baits
02:26 but that stuff is tough
02:30 it’s very tough
02:34 all right here’s the first one we’re
02:35 sitting at about 60 foot of water in the
02:37 middle of the ohio river
03:15 all right my side is in we’re still
03:17 waiting on ryan i think he had to redo
03:19 some
03:20 lines but we’re just going to drift down
03:23 here and see what we can come up with
03:44so
03:53 we were floating down through here just
03:55 a little skeptical
03:57 not knowing ryan talking about we pushed
04:02 should have put a skip jack on there
04:04 i said no let’s give it a good good
04:06 minute here
04:08 and see what’s up but this is the
04:12 packaged asian carp
04:19 now we’re catching these fish in 60 foot
04:21 so i’m not trying to fight it it’s not a
04:23 big fish
04:24 but it’s a fish now let me see if i can
04:28 control my boat too
04:29 i’m at it
04:35 but yeah you want to bring them up
04:36 slowly when they’re at deeper water
04:40 just lost it just one point it’ll be all
04:43 right it’s still going
04:44 oh there he is
04:49 getting it you probably i got his tap
04:54 tap
05:03 all right guys so you still got the
05:06 let me let me grab my boat here if i
05:08 don’t watch what i’m doing
05:09 it’s gonna be crazy around here
05:13 all right still got that chunk of asian
05:16 carp on there
05:24 that’s a ten pound fish eight ten
05:26 pounder maybe
05:29 asian carp i’m kind of excited to see
05:32 that
05:34 that that’s gonna work
05:38 we’re gonna see if we can catch some
05:39 more hang tight
05:45 down he goes all right let me
05:48 straighten this boat out and see if we
05:51 catch another one
05:59 we’re just drifting down the middle
06:00 middle of the ohio river
06:11 suspend drifting down the middle of the
06:13 ohio river
06:14 this is the bait i’ve got just caught
06:16 him on
06:18
stuff’s really tough too
06:24
but i am gonna use it again
06:28
but i’m gonna hook it in a different
06:29
corner off the same bait
06:43
the wind is really blowing not real hard
06:45
but enough to aggravate me because i got
06:47
this big top on my boat
07:02
all right pleasantly surprised we caught
07:04
one on that bait
07:07
that’s promising
07:10
all right we’re gonna see what’s uh down
07:12
the next bin
07:15
we’re uh being blown and drifted
07:19
at about one mile an hour
07:24
all right we are at our second spot we
07:26
caught one fish
07:27
in that one drift upriver but we come
07:31
down here to another spot that i know
07:33
we’re going to try it
07:36
ryan’s going to try the new i guess it’s
07:39
the garlic flavor
07:40
isn’t it garlic confused garlic infused
07:43
asian carp
07:49
and i’m gonna stick with my same pieces
07:51
i’ve had there
07:52
ever since i started this one here
07:58
and the other one i’m using
08:02
is the same one i caught the fish on
08:03
while ago so
08:06
i’m gonna see how hearty this bait is
08:15
now we’re about 45 foot of water
08:26
and i’m in a spot that i generally catch
08:27
a lot of numbers of small fish in so
08:31
hopefully they’ll like this new bait
08:42
yeah i found this bait just on facebook
08:44
i seen somebody else that posted a
08:46
picture of it and i thought that’s
08:48
interesting let’s
08:49
let’s try it and i did find out where i
08:51
could get it at it’s kind of
08:54
the way i understand it it might not be
08:57
totally available right now because
08:59
they’re revamping some packaging or
09:01
something but
09:02
it’s on its way and then there’s a big
09:05
lot that they have
09:06
already existing that you can still buy
09:12
don’t know a lot about it other than i
09:14
just wanted to give it a try and see
09:15
what it was about
09:19
and see if it’s a good alternative to
09:23
fresh bait or just caught bait
09:27
sometimes folks ain’t got time to
09:31
go out and catch bait
09:35
but so far it’s caught one fish
09:39
so far we got a thumbs up
09:42
all right we still ain’t open to skip
09:44
jack yet
09:46
ryan’s brian’s a little iffy on that
09:50
he’s one he’s going to open this skip
09:52
jack up
09:53
but i said we’re going to do it for two
09:55
hours
09:58
and then we’ll we’ll give it a go
10:02
we got another hour to go
10:07
i’m rooting for you bait
10:16
that would be nice because there’s a
10:17
huge amount of asian cars
10:25
they’re actually swimming all around us
10:27
right now as we speak if they can
10:29
even if they can really smoke it and
10:30
make it a good
10:32
taste to the smoke that’s all it says
10:34
you can’t eat it but
10:35
i don’t know why a fish would want one
10:37
smoked i don’t know if that’s a curing
10:38
process or not but yeah it’s okay
10:40
i somebody when the guy i talked to a
10:42
lady i talked to that sells this
10:45
said it was salt it was salt or
10:47
something
10:50
but i was really surprised i was
10:51
expecting some funk
10:53
some smells some nasty but it really
10:56
it’s not bad at all
11:08
yeah we’re just pretty much free
11:09
drifting down through here now
11:12
i’m gonna try to stay in this one little
11:14
50-foot range
11:18
but the wind is not getting this as bad
11:20
up here
11:26
yeah really
11:33
okay yep on the dragon
11:39
is that on your garlic formula yeah that
11:42
is all the garlic
11:43
it’s got you know passed up the skip
11:45
jack up here went
11:46
straight for that uh garlic infused
11:53
asian carp and i was over there give me
11:55
the
11:57
give me the skipjack well it’s good to
11:59
know that this stuff works
12:01
right it’s you know it’s absolutely it’s
12:03
great it’s good to have something that
12:05
you can
12:06
pull out of your uh you know boat
12:09
and have it on demand just in case you
12:11
can’t find the shad
12:12
you can’t uh can’t get the skip jack
12:16
you got any size to him another probably
12:19
10 pounder
12:20
see if he’ll blow let him blow if he
12:21
will just leave him
12:24
out there for a minute keep tensing
12:25
though so he don’t get off but
12:36
well i’m real excited about this
12:49
yeah he’s in 55 foot of water guys so
12:52
easing them up
12:59
is that his bubbles or is that fish
13:02
bigger than we think he is
13:04
that one’s big fish bowls
13:08
oh no it just blew yeah
13:12
all right and he’s on what is it the
13:15
garlic
13:17
garlic flavor
13:28
well we’ve had one suspended and we’ve
13:31
had one dragon
13:32
so that almost a mile per hour
13:35
yep all right
13:38
and then uh you still got the bait on
13:40
there yep
13:42
turn it around like you said and put a
13:43
new hole in it
13:45
good to go let’s catch another
13:50
all right there you go folks there’s two
13:52
fish on this stuff so
13:54
i’m pretty excited to see where else it
13:56
goes
14:01
all right guys we’re at our last spot
14:02
we’re running out of time but uh
14:04
just wanted to take a minute and let you
14:06
know what i think about the bait
14:08
uh we have caught two fish on it
14:11
i finally let ryan bust out the skipjack
14:13
because he was feeling sad we’ve i’ve
14:15
fished nothing but
14:16
this so far and uh that’s the only thing
14:19
that’s caught fish now i’m not saying
14:21
it’s the best bait or anything but what
14:24
i am saying that it’s
14:26
it’s working for uh what it is
14:35
and we had one on each yep had one on
14:37
garlic and had one on
14:38
uh just regular i guess
14:42
asian tarp but
14:45
i was a little skeptical
14:49
now we’re going up we went way up
14:52
so be careful that’s probably why it’s
14:54
happening
14:57
this might be the end of the road here
15:01
we went from 50 to 30 all of a sudden
15:08
but anyway guys i just seen this stuff
15:10
on the internet and i wanted to try it i
15:11
think it’s a pretty cool idea
15:13
and it’s pretty nifty um i don’t think
15:17
that
15:17
today was a good day to try it because
15:20
every fish that we’ve seen
15:22
is just like so stuck to the bottom it’s
15:25
they’re just not active we found very
15:28
few fish that
15:29
that are off the bottom but
15:34
i’m gonna try the bait again this stuff
15:36
we haven’t cut up yet but still
15:38
yeah that’s all good and this stuff yeah
15:40
this stuff is all like it’s all just put
15:42
in the refrigerator
15:44
yeah i’ll have to get a little more
15:45
details about this guys i don’t know if
15:47
you’re supposed to stick this in the
15:48
refrigerator or
15:49
you’re just supposed to ziplock it back
15:51
up
15:53
but like i said i was surprised with the
15:55
smell because it there really doesn’t
15:57
have a smell
16:00
so it wasn’t too greasy on the hands no
16:03
and it they caught fish so uh like i say
16:06
we’re just testing this out
16:08
i don’t think it’s gonna be a tournament
16:11
bait
16:12
by no means because fresh is always
16:14
better and that’s what guys are gonna do
16:16
but for the guy i just don’t have a lot
16:18
of time
16:19
can grab a hold of this and go out and
16:20
catch some good fish good solid fish
16:22
like we did today
16:24
that’s that’s a pretty good deal
16:28
that eliminates the need to have to go
16:30
out in the time consuming
16:32
catching bait because it is a pretty
16:34
cool idea
16:38
but we’ll know more about it next time i
16:40
come out i’m going to try it again so
16:42
we’ll see it in the next video i guess
16:47
but we’re not done we’re going to have a
16:48
few more minutes here but
16:51
if we don’t catch fish between now and
16:52
then
16:54
thanks for stopping watching our videos
16:56
and we’ll see you in the next one
