Default Kitchenaid Chum Grinder

Has anyone ever used their wife's kitchenaid mixer along with the Food Grinder attachment to grind their own chum?

It looks like homemade chum from leftoverfishmight be pretty easy





To the people that make it, how does everyone freeze and distribute their own chum? I was thinking of using this contraption someone gave me (6" pvc pipe with a cap on one end, screw cap on the other, and holes drilled all throughout the pipe) and try to form the chum into a shape that would easily fit into my chum basket.

Steve do not use that one. Tried some of all of them. Either build you one , power-driven, or buy you one that is already made to do the chum thing. I simply use quart & gallon size freezer bags to freeze mine in. Just your standard net bag from Boaters world or Bass Pro works just fine to disperse chum. Bass Pro, has a really tough bag, if they still carry them. It is a green bag that is tuffer than any I have ever used. I have a #32 grinder with a 1 hp electric motor that is belt driven. I usually grind up pogies and any other bycatch I have leftover after a fishing trip. Bream, catfish etc, work fine too.

I use a #32 grinder belt powered by 1/2hp elect. motor. Cheap and will chew thru big bluefish bones with no issues.

The grind output along with oils and other ingrediants fall into a 5 gallon bucket and frozen until needed. We have 12 bucket frozen ready for use.
When placed upside down in a milk crate it self dispenses and needs no attending, love that

That's awesome but I seem to missing my walk-in freezer. I bet you get great dispersion with the milk crate as well.

Very cool, if you have the tool.

Major.......Great system! A bit more practical than quart or gallon ziplock bags. Sounds like you can actually set up a chum line.

the mesh bags work great to dispense chum... unless of course you are shark fishing. then your bag won't last 10 minutes in shark infested waters. they will chew it to bits. buckets or milk crates when shark chumming!

Major Woods, I have a simmular home made unit (Just configured a bit different and i have a 1 horse motor) but for all intent and purpose the same. Works wicked pissa . The only thing i do different is i use 2 1/2 gallon buckets instead of 5 gallon buckets, only because they fit better in my 2 chest freezers and the fishboxes on the boat..
