Thanks for your inquiry!
I've heard of many different kinds of chum being used on several
fish species; and for: Bluegills, Crappie, Perch, Trout, Catfish,
and Carp, in
freshwater; but I've never heard of any kind of chum being effectively
(If you do find one that really works, would you please let me
Since Bass are basically "homebodies," and strictly
live-bait predators by
nature; I just can't think of anything that could be effectively
used as a chum
For that same reason, I really don't think that using a catfish
stinkbaits or bloodbaits), in an area heavily populated by Bass;
would have the
effect of scaring the Bass off, at all!
About all I can honestly tell you is: Give it a try, and see
Good Fishin' !
