A short while ago someone was talking about using blood meal in lures and baits to make them thicker. I just got a bag and the guy told me it was just straight nitrogen. It looks like very fine dirt. My question is this - Is this the right stuff to be mixing in lure and bait or did I get the wrong thing?

What I was looking for was dried blood, not blood meal.

Yea, this stuff doesn't look like anything you would want to mix in a lure.

Blood meal looks like fine black dirt, Sounds like you got blood meal...Don't know if that's what you wanted. It's used as a protein supplement in livestock feed. You could mix it, don't know if it'll make the lure thicker though?

The dried blood I had was a very fine powder and was a dark maroon in color. Dad had some, and when Dave Edwards passed away, I found more at his place identical to the stuff dad had. I believe Dave gave it to dad, because the bags were indentical.

Should be available at most Garden shops and organic places like Wormway.

This bloodmeal is dark as dirt with a dark maroon tint. You would think if it was fed to cattle it wouldn't hurt anything. Very fine powder.

Blood meal does give off a blood odor. When you fertilize with it, you have to worry about dogs trying to dig up your garden, looking for whatever they're smelling.

Blood is flash dried in a kiln, same as any other wet product you want turned to a meal form and not take the oil or fat from it. Soybean meal is done a bit different as its dried much the same but a large amount of high quality solvent is used to pull off the oil, the solvent and oil are seperated in a chamber and the solvent used again.
