Catfish Charlie’s Dough Bait is known as the ‘Old Standby’ for thousands of fisherman.  The original Charlie Type A is famous Nationwide for its soft yet clingy, cheesy formula.  Charlie Blood B has the same characteristics as Type A but in a blood flavor.  Pole Cracker turns almost white in color when submerged in water, attracting the fish by both sight and scent.  Full Stringer is a triple strength formula that will stay on the hook in the swiftest of currents and is made with Tracer Scent that allows the fish to follow the scent up-stream to your bait.  
Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 42 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Bait I have used various other dough baits and have had great success with this one. Channel cats love this stuff and it actually stays on the hook. April 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by They weren't kidding This was the first time I used the dough and got a bite EVERY time! It almost feels like cheating. September 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT STUFF This stuff works great. I mix it with other special ingredients to make a knock out dough ball. The catfish love it! The retailers in my area always sell out of this product, so this year I bought a case!!! August 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Bait I got the blood and caught plenty of channel catfish! This is some of the best stink bait! It doesn't smell too bad and I was just using a bare hook and it still stayed on! You just have to put it in the fridge and then mash it on the hook real good or get a dip bait holder. Got it for a great price! June 5, 2013

A: 
I don't add any weight when lake fishing. I use a circle hook and keep my dough on the stiff side. I use a little corn starch to tighten it up. No leader or swivel. After dark I keep the bait in shallow water near the shore, before dark I drop it down in the channels. Gotta put it where they are feeding. I like to use 20 pound test braid.

A: 
I always use the "ski boot" or trout weight since it can lay on the bottom without restricting the line and does not snag on retrieves. The hooks I like to use is the ones like the Bill Dance Advantage Spring Treble Hooks since the spring keeps the bait from flying off when casting and retains the bait for long periods in currents.

A: 
The size sinker depends on the rating of your rod and the test of your line but I would go as heavy as possible. Use a size #6 spring treble hook for channel cats and to hold the bait on really well for long hard casting. Tie your treble hook on a 6-inch leader below a swivel. Above the swivel add a plastic bead with a sliding egg sinker above that and then fish on the bottom for most locations. In heavy silted riverbeds you might want to fish just off the bottom with a slip bobber.

A: 
I get the best catfish results when using several types of bait, even if catching them on only one type. The variety seems to draw their curiosity. I use chicken livers or gizzards on some hooks, catfish soap on at least one, and prepared catfish baits on others. The various prepared catfish baits all seem to work about the same for me. The chicken livers may be the best, but fall off the hook. The chicken gizzards are almost as good, but don't fall off.

A: 
I never kept the Blood one refridgerated when I lived in Texas. Never used any of the others. As long as the lid is kept on snuggly it should keep for a year or two. But, if you use it a lot, the year or two is irrelevant! :) The key is like the package reads: too soft or "crumbly?" Kneading brings it back. Too hard, a little water and kneading will bring it back. Good luck!

A: 
The only difference between the two is that dough-bait can be used with regular and treble hooks while dip-bait will only stay on the hook if you buy the special hooks with plastic sleeves usually referred to as "worms". I prefer to use the dough-bait with spring treble hooks as it's easy to put on and doesn't come off easily.

I've caught cats on both, however I've caught more on the dough. To answer your question while they both work well for me I think the Dough Bait works a little better.

A: 
depending on what type of hook you use, the temperature of bait and outside temperature and how rough you cast, when i cast i loft it, and i use a treble hook, do not use a spring treble, just a size 6 treble and just enough bait to cover the hook, it should stay on for a while

A: 
It can fly off if you're using plain treble hooks and have to cast far. If you're using dough bait treble hooks, it doesn't, it's actually hard to get off by hand when you're done fishing.
