    Shad, Shrimp, Beef Heart, Beef Liver, Cutbait, Live Perch, dip bait, stink bait, etc.

    Catfish are easy to catch if you do a little research and don't mind putting in a little time to find out what they like. Most bodies of water have catfish in them and they are pretty easy to catch.

    I catfish every single week and they go after something different each time. Don't be afraid to experiment with different baits and techniques, that is part of the fun of going after catfish.

    Night crawlers or chicken livers- I have had the most luck on the lake by dropping the bait to the bottom and slow bouncing it as I drift along with the trolling motor.

    With an old crank telephone, drop a wire on boat sides of the boat and call them up!

    Just kidding!!!

    For some, guns, dynamite, or bare hands.

    Depends on the species, fish the edge of current breaks for channel and blues with cut bait or worms fished on a slipsinker rig on bottom. For Flathead use large live bait suspended just off the bottom in eddys.

    I have always had good luck with cut bait, put it on a circle hook with at least 12lb test usualy a braided line on a medium heavy rod with a good reel. Heavy tackel and foul smelling bait, cast it in the water and wait.

    Some big cats, and some humans that are after them, in some places go nuts over back hooked live shiners or shad. Sinkers can be involved.

    Some find success with hot dogs, cut bait, chicken livers, cheese, or even cornbread and hushpuppies. I say combine them all into a half-rotten sick-nasty disgusting goo or paste. They make little spongy absorbent foam baits to dip or rub all nasty like in it.

    Chumming or throwing out a little bag or net of nastiness on a string is usually effective. Cast into the watery stench-zone you just made.

    I like to use set lines with live minnows if I can find them.

    I usually use crawlers, livers, or stink bait. Use more heavy tackle though.

    GO BRONCOS!

    Some night crawlers at night with my dad, down where the water from the lake rolls over a small damn in the river.

    I use nightcrawlers and just bottom fish. I did run out of bait one time and used some shell mac and cheese for bait. Worked out pretty good, just couldn't cast to far out.

    Wild boar hybrids can have piglets at three months of age.
    I've taken a few.
