hard boiled egg
rotten hard boiled egg
any cooked fat, preferably charred a little (what you cut off of the steak you eat for dinner)
wanna go further
cook lard until liquified, get cheap bottle of liquid smoke(99 cents at dollar store) and dump into lard, stir, let thicken, now you have a LDC smear lure that can be used in a hole, flat set or above a set as an added attractor.
Go to wallyworld, buy cheapest pack of junk bacon ends you can get, cook it until it's burned and crumbling, mix this in with cooked lard and let cook together for a while, remove from heat, allow to setup.
Want to get real fancy, dump dark food coloring into the mix so everyday when the sun gets to it it absorbs heat,causing it to release fresh smell daily.
Yes there are better but these will/ have worked, set on sign and your catches will come.
