My grandfather loved fishing and used to make a fish bait called Doughballs that was similar to this recipe, but not strawberry. I found this recipe online and it brought back lots of wonderful fishing memories!

  2. Bring water to a simmer and then add vanilla, sugar and strawberry gelatin, while stirring.
  3. Keep stirring and sprinkle on enough dry mixture to cover the surface of the liquid.

  5. Continue in this manner until dry mix is gone and then continue stirring for two minutes.
  6. Cool and remove from the pan; roll into a ball, wrap tightly and then store in the refrigerator.
  7. TO USE: Roll up a ball the size of a large english pea onto a #6, #4 or #2 fishing hook; when fishing line moves, wait until line tightens before setting the hook.
