what state you from and the key words are  "in excess" what exactly is  in excess , my point isn't  really about chumming  it's about tossing a  bucket of  fish guts in the river getting caught then saying i'm chumming for catfish......i think and  this is my opinion ....before i "chummed" i would  contact the DEC.....just saying

in my state yes its legal to chum fish parts.  the idnr just says "not in excess".  like guys taking 55gal drums on grain or scraps would be a no no.  a 5 gallon bucket would be considered legal chum.  that came from email response years ago.  its not my opinion trap.

Fish Hogger and I know some people that get carried away with the corn chum for trout on a few of our trout lakes. I've seen tons of it laying n the bottom all moldy. Some people are just idiots.

 http://
No person shall take or attempt to take any fish by means of chumming with fish eggs. For the purposes of this section, “chumming” means depositing fish eggs, not attached to a hook, in the waters of the State of New York other than in the Marine and Coastal District.
 Curious  if you can’t clean fish within 100 feet of shore,  so how can you use fish guts to chum with in a River

We have a somewhat rocky shoreline in front of our camp with a lot of crayfish .... I usually cut up the skin in smaller pieces and feed them that and a few other scraps ..... the guts I throw in a bucket and take out in the middle of a small shallow bay where there are a lot of snappers. They clean it up fast.  In the winter it goes in my compost pile ..... never thought about chumming with it .....hmmmmmm.  My neighbor even started feeding the crayfish now too - hahaha

Do you ever catch the crayfish for bait? They are outstanding bait especially for smallmouth bass. Don't even have to be in the soft phase. As a taxidermist I have found crayfish in the stomachs of all species except the smaller panfish.

Good question - actually thats why the rocks are there - decades ago I brought small boat loads of flat rocks and stacked them right along the shoreline so I wouldn't have to go all over the lake to catch crayfish - the crayfish moved in and I'd just step out the door and they are there - hahaha.  I don't really fish for bass any more but I keep the crayfish happy anyway ......  I've had pretty good luck with perch on crayfish tails too, and even caught a few trout on them under bobbers .......  I used to keep the crayfish in a fish box for bait before I had the rocks,  and made the mistake of throwing the bass I caught that night in the same box, to be cleaned the next day .... when I went out to clean the fish the crabs were all gone.  when I cleaned the bass I found them - a couple were still alive - hahaha

  I heard a guy catches a perch thru the ice  then takes the eggs out and mixes them up in bottle full of water.  He dumps a little down the hole now and then.  I guess it works but it plays havic with your flasher    all those little marks    sounds like that's not legal  ?   What happens in your shanty stays in your shanty

Sounds that way ...... "No person shall take or attempt to take any fish by means of chumming with fish eggs."  Chumming is defined as " depositing in the water any substance, not attached to a hook, which may attract fish."  I would thing the officer would have to be pretty tough to ticket what you are saying the first time he see's it but it wouldn't surprise me either .....

That's odd as perch eggs are in gelatinous strands. And they have a natural adverse taste to predators.

My great uncle used to use kielbasa on a pimple for perch ..... he would go to a hole I cut and caught nothing in and would be reeling them in one after another ..... very irritating some days when I had no kielbasa - hahaha.
