Sodium Benzoate is a powder that is used by many bait makers. Sodium can be used to stop the aging process of meat, preserve urine and fish oils, and is also good for liquid baits and cut up fish.
Directions for meat baits:
Age or taint your meat to the desired level. Then thoroughly mix in the sodium benzoate making sure the sodium benzoate is evenly distributed.
- 2 Tablespoons of Sodium Benzoate per pint of meat
- 1 cup of Sodium Benzoate per gallon of meat
The meat will continue to age slightly because it takes 7-10 days for full effect.
Directions for Urines and Oils:
Take a 5-7 ounces of urine or oil out of your bottle and put it into a bowl or container with lid. Add the appropriate amount of sodium and either whisk or shake the sodium into the 5-7 ounces. Try to dissolve this sodium as much as possible. Then you can return the sodium treated urine or oil back to the container and mix well.
- 2 tablespoons per gallon of urine or oil
