Find instructions on how to make cooked and uncooked doughballs for fish bait.
There are two types of doughballs commonly used as fish bait.
Bring 1 cup water and 2 teaspoons sugar to a boil in a pan. Add 1 cup cornmeal and 3/4 cup plain flour and stir over low heat for 5 minutes. Put mixture in a double boiler, cover it and cook it for 1/2 hour. Add extra sugar or honey if bait is for carp. Makes enough dough for 2 anglers for a day.
Trim the crust from several slices of rye bread, dampen the bread with port or any other sweet wine and knead it into a doughball. Keep it sealed in a plastic bag to prevent it from drying out.
