I've tried dough balls made of the cereal Wheaties but the dough breaks down too fast for how long you'll be fishing.

Boil cornmeal in an old pan till thick like a mush. Add crushed up wheaties cereal, 1 package of any flavor jello, a splash of vanilla extract, and about 2 cups of Briar Rabbit Dark Mollasses. Mix well and spoon into a square baking pan. Bake on low heat untill it becomes like tar, very black and gummy. Let cool and roll it into a couple fist size balls. It will be very gummy. Wrap in foil and let sit in a sunny place for at least one week. When you go fishing just pinch off a bit and roll it into a marble size ball and stick it on your hook.
I know this may sound funny, but I swear you'll never find a better bait for Carp or Cat's. Because it's so gummy it really stays on a hook good too. I'll give you a good piece of advice too. Eighther hang on tight to your rod or have it in a sturdy rod holder because when fish hit this bait they tend to nail it and run like heck!
I got this recipe years ago from an old fellow I met while fishing a particular lake. It took a long, long time, several fishing trips, and a lot of talking before he finally gave me the recipe. It's messy to make, and you won't make any brownie points with your wife, but you'll be glad you made the effort. It will catch fish when nothing else will!

Bowfishing them is what it takes about now during the spawn.
Spirit I bet that bait would work on bears too.
