You grind it right, it will be sticky enough without all that mess. I grind several hundred gallons a year.

I wonder if crisco wouldn't be a better base then vaseline. Guessing a food product is going to be more appealing then a petroleum byproduct.

Sounds like a trap line experiment to try. Make one batch up with vaseline and another with cooking grease. Put two traps a few feet apart with one smell at one and the other at the second and see which one catches more coon.

Ive tried the marshmellow paste and it does work well but... i think its to much of a mess to use. If you get any in the threads and it gets cold, it makes it a pain to open especialy if you hands are cold. Also if you drip any on any of your equipment seems like everything is sticky because it then gets on you hands and gloves then ends up on all your equipment. You get my point. If i were you i would buy some of red o hearns bait. Its sticky and freeze proof and works good. Just my opinion.

simple fix for a smear lure order a gal of medhaden oil from boaters world cost $15.00 a gal just stick in freezer over night or leave out side if freezing weather ..it will not freeze solid but will turn in to a thick gel and it has a super sweet smell and if it warms up it still leaves a oil trail on the water and on the wall....and to make it smell strounger just add a oz of liquid smoke ..(shake well before using if warm)also good for red and grey fox

Take a fish. Carp, Sucker, ect. Cut it into chunks. Put it through a bench grinder, repeat this step many times. Put the finished product into a bucket, mix in Glycerine to keep it freeze proof. WOW, what a coon bait!!

Vaseline probably will take some of the smell away once it dries. I made some bait with it once and when It was liquid it smelled real good but once it hardened back up it barely had a smell anymore. I was disapointed with it. Dan

Here's mine. 1/2 cup honey, 1/4 cup molassis, 1 tsp anise, 1 tsp vanilla, and enough crunchy peanut butter to make a paste. The crunchy PB gives it texture that makes it more visible. I also like the glitter idea above.

Cedar,
If the ground fish is freeze proof from adding glycerine, how do you store it so it doesn't rot all summer. I've never used glycerine so this is new to me.
