Default Meat grinder question - hole dia.?

I have a meat grinder I want to use for grinding chum.
The problem is the holes are too small in the plate that it came with.
Can someone tell me what diameter the holes should be?

I used to have one and I believe the holes were about 1/2". It worked perfect for grinding all kinds of baitfish.

I bought a blender at the flea market, run the stuff through the chum grinder, and then the blender. Makes the frozen block work better. Great use for old ballyhoo or old bait leftovers.
