To this mixture you can add a flavoring. I usually make a ball of bait that is flavored with vanilla, one with strawberry, and one with anise, and one with no extra flavoring. Mix all these ingredients in a bowl and add flour to thicken until it is at the right consistency to stay on the hook.
Mix bread and cottonseed meal together and moisten with vanilla flavoring to roll this mixture into a ball. The mixture should be about like bread dough. Pinch off enough to cover a #12 treble hook. Keep the rest of the ball in a ziplock bag .Can be stored in the refrigerator for about a week.
