 Have you been looking for the best catfish bait ever?  

Well you've found it!

Danny King's catfish punch bait is back in business and better than ever.  We have returned to the original formula. This bait is manufactured to Danny's specifications and is hand cooked and hand packed.  We produce three flavors of bait: Blood, Garlic, and Original.  All flavors are available in Pint, Quart, and Gallon containers.

It will stay on your treble hook (we recommend a #4 or #6) without the use of a sponge or screw.   Just punch the hook to the bottom of the container using a "punch paddle" or a stick and pull it out using the line.  All the bait you need will be on the hook.  No need to touch the bait with your hands!

Many of your local Wal-Mart, Gander Mountain, Academy, Dick's, and Cabela's stores stock the pint size in all three flavors.   If you can't find our bait in your local retail store or would like a larger size, please visit one of our online retailers

to make your retail purchase online.  

Please note that these are independent retailer sites.

About Danny King


 Danny L. King is the "Father" of the "Original" Catfish Punch Bait. Danny made and marketed the first punch bait in June of 1966. In 1991, after many years of experimenting with different ingredients, he and his wife Ruth decided to take the bait to the general public. It has proven over and over again that it will catch catfish, large and small in all types of water, from Texas to Illinois and all in between. Ruth King, Danny's wife, was the person responsible for traveling and pushing to get the punch bait to the general public. She convinced Danny to talk with fishermen about how to fish and use the bait properly. The bait is now sold in numerous stores across the nation. Danny King's Catfish Punch Bait is the #1 bait sold in lots of states and was rated #1 catfish bait by Microsoft for 2004 in number of hits per day on our website.


 Danny King and his team fished the ACATS Tournaments Trails and qualified four times for the Classic. They won the Classic in 2002, 2003, 2004 and hold the honor of being the first place team three years in a row. Danny and his team took 5th place in the 2005 Classic, took third place in the Anglers of the Year for 2003, and won Angler of the Year for 2004 and 2005. Danny also won the prestigious Bucket Award (equal to "Most Valuable Player Award"). King and team won 1st place and biggest fish at the Bass Pro Big Catfish Quest hosted on Lake Texoma Texas in 2006 and 2007. His team won 1st place on Lake Whitney Texas, 2nd place on Toledo Bend Texas  and Hugo Lake Oklahoma, and 3rd place on Lake Ray Hubbard Texas, which were all ACATS tournaments. Danny and his team placed 2nd for Anglers of the Year in 2006. 


 With the decline of his wife's health, Danny has had to cut back on his aggressive schedule of seminars and tournaments. Beginning in 2012 Danny has returned to providing "how to" seminars at Boat and Tackle shows in Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas. His years of experience coupled with his exceptional bait has once again made him a "show" favorite. In addition, he is providing the quality assurance on all of the bait now produced under his name. He is ensuring the bait is as good or better than it has been and that any problems from the past are resolved and not repeated. He stands behind every jar produced at our new Texas location. If it doesn't say "TEXAS", it's not the tried and true Danny King's formula.
