Hmm, I'm not too familiar with paste baits. I don't think I've seen ready made ingredients from tackle shops either. What species of fish are you trying to catch with the paste bait?

Tilapias are omnivorous so paste baits should technically work, I am surprised that you the tilapias refused your bread and earthworms. May be you can try berlying some of your bait to get them into feeding mood. Also if they're in courtship or nesting, they won't be too interested to take your bait.

Paste baits have varied ingredients but most uses flour and certain oil and spices for strong scent to attract the fish. You should be able to get them from most supermarkets, NTUC Xtra/Finest outlets are good places to start with.
