    I was wondering if the Crappie would stack up on this stuff?

    Without a current flow it dosent work nearly as well. Not to say it wouldn't work at all, but current is key for getting a good chum slick going, which fish follow back to the boat/chum source. It can also get pricey, as 4 to 6 of that size depending on current, would be required for a 4 hour trip, assuming your using just 1 chum bag. Never seen or heard of it being used in fresh water, and not even widely used in salt water, except in the keys.

    It's used A LOT in freshwater -- but not in the US. There's an entire chumming industry in Europe. There's a real art to it, and they have mastered it.

    And yes ... I am a chummer.

    Well there's not much art involved over here. lol
    Just put the stuff in a mesh bag, toss it in the water, and let the current do the rest.
    Most guys only need to be shown 1 time. lol
    Now the art might come in when it comes to making your own chum, and there are a variety of recipes for that, like canned cat food.

    The art comes in different mixes for different species, different venues (lake vs river) and how it's mixed: wet vs dry, active vs inert, etc.

    Here's a sample of the different chum mixes you can buy:

    For American, though, you can get by with very simple mixes.
