I am sorry i just can't see corn killing a fish. I am sure the fish can poop it out okay. May have to strain a little but, I've been there too.

I wrote to ask fwc and ask them, this is the response I got back.
FWC has no regulations with regard to the use of corn as a chum ingredient. I am a bit surprised to hear that the snapper actually consumed the corn as this would certainly not be a part of their normal diet. Did this happen on April 1st? It seems like a lot of strange things happen on that day for some reason. Please give me a call if I can be of any further assistance. Thanks, Alan Peirce (850-617-9647
So go ahead and put corn in your chum, it really seems to work.

Good cheap chum....a bag of dry cat food, add menhaden oil and salt water in milk jug. Let it sit for a while and cat food will absorb the oil and water and swell up. Cut a few holes in it, add some lead weighs to hold it under water ..tie it off and drop it the drink.
There's so much BS and ignorance in this post I know it didn't come from eating corn! Yellowtails, one of the nastiest fish in the sea? They eat something because they can get nutrients from it; same as any snapper, grouper, flounder, redfish, or any species of fish. Uncooked rice does not expand in the digestive system of fish, people, bears, dogs, intergalactic aliens or anything else. Eat a spoonful and check your t**ds 24 hours later; you could clean the rice up and reuse it!! And, if a yellowtail can pass a 1/4oz freshwater worm sinker (I finished pulling it out) then a mere kernel of corn is headed right on through.
