Winter in Texas means a bone-chilling 50 degrees at night! This may not be cold for the rest of the world but for us Texans and Resin 3d Printers, it's cold! For today's video, it's time to learn a fast and easy way to create a heated enclosure for your resin 3d Printer. These printers as you know like to print at a high temperature. For best results, you are looking at a temperature of 85 degrees.
To save you the research, I have dived into researching already great DYI methods on YouTube to find the best way to DYI an enclosure for your 3D printer. What I’ve discovered is that “You need a hot box, Bro!”Let's start by creating something fast and easy.
The first thing I did was purchase a Heated Enclosure by Creality. It easily holds the Elegoo Saturn or any printer similar to that size. Keep in mind, these enclosures are essentially planting boxes used to grown plants indoors.If you need anything larger, go on amazon and search for grow tents. Make sure you can see inside the enclosure, and it's heat resistant. I added a cool RGB light as an add on. It's extra!
Next, you'll need a heater. I purchased a ceramic heater from Amazon. Remember, larger boxes will require a larger heater.
Lastly, you’ll need a way to control the heater. It is important that you have the ability to set the temperature on and off. Luckily, you can control the heat with a Temperature Probe. These are usually used in gardening and can be hard to understand at first. Once you hit that setup button a few times, you can expect it to work flawlessly.
To summarize, after this setup, I do not have anymore temperature variation failures and can run my printer inside this enclosure without any issues. You should also see that it cuts down on the fumes as well. This setup only takes 10 minutes and it's super easy!

Today we're going to review my Panko Carp Bait recipe that I use to catch carp and catfish with, then put it to the test by fishing with it! First off, let's go over the ingredients I used to make this bait.
Old Fashioned Oatmeal
The first step is to simply drain the corn from the can. Next, fill a large bowl with the contents of your oatmeal, and then repeat the same step with 4 cups of panko. From there, remove the entirety of the strawberry Jell-o and place that in the same bowl as the oats and panko. Now place your recently drained corn into the same bowl and mix thoroughly. Make sure to keep that drained corn juice in a separate bowl, and add about half of that remainder into the same bowl as the rest of the ingredients.
After mixing for an extended period of time, you can now add the rest of the corn juice to the same bowl. Again, start mixing until it starts to pack together and add water if the mixture is still too dry. Continue to mix it together until you notice that the pack is just right!
I mash the finished pack bait into some white bread and put the whole jig head in as well, then smush the entire thing together which results in a huge piece of bait. I rip that piece in half to make more reasonably sized bait. The first fish I reeled in with this bait is a common carp! Other fishers in the area started to take notice of my results and how well of a spot this is to take advantage of year-round.

Using pack bait for carp is my mission of the day today, and I am extremely focused on accomplishing that goal. I recently caught mybayou slam a couple of days ago, which includes the combination of:
Common Carp (or Grass Carp)
Despite my success with this group of fish, the pack bait I used was not ideal because my bread used was not refrigerated properly. I now have fresh pack bait that I'm using today, so let's see how it works out!
Right off the bat, it looks like there's a ton of mullet, armored catfish, and even some common carp further down from my favorite spot. They definitely tend to hide down in the crack and crevices and root in there for a while. I did bring my bread along with me but plan on using the homemade pack bait I have on hand. I followed the recipe of Jell-O, oats and corn plus a little bit of almond smoke.
The method feeder is my tool for the day, and you need to put a little bit of corn on your hook which makes a bit of a Chum pile for the fish to bite onto. Smash a bit of the pack bait on, but if you don't have a method feeder you can pack around the hook. This bait is bigger than normal so fish may be scared immediately but come back after a little bit. Generally, these fish are aware of predators above like birds, so shadows tend to scare them more than noise does.
After quite a bit of patience, being in the right spot paid off, and I could feel the fish on the line. In a way, the common carp fight a little more like a redfish but are much stronger than the grass carp. I'm using my 8 foot setup today which makes landing these fish a bit of a challenge. In the end I caught a beautiful common carp with great color on him, and it finally paid off after weeks of trying.
