2. Corn Mash
When you get to your spot, throw a couple of small handfuls of the mix into the water where you'll be casting, but don't pitch it too far. Next, bait your hook with whole-kernel sweet corn, bread, dough, or a chickpea. Tightly pack the mix around the bait, forming a blob no bigger than a golf ball and no smaller than a grape. I mold a second ball around my slip sinker, too.
