Wanted For Fish Bait
I am looking for recipes for the old-time doughballs that were
used for fish bait.
I can remember as a small child when my uncles used to make them
for bait on a trotline.
If any reader would be so kind as to send me the recipe and the
process for making them, it would be greatly appreciated.
