    Me and my brothers fave is chicken livers/ hearts. The hearts hold up a little better. But the biggest catfish I've ever seen caught first hand was a 64lb channel cat caught on a 2" goldfish.

    JIM IN MO Thats awesome! I had a similar expirience on a farmpond.I was sitting underneath a mullberry tree and I kept seeing cats hitting the top.I thought maybe they were hitting on grasshoppers.I tried that but it didn't work.Thats when I realized they were nailing falling mullberries.I took off my wieghts and just let a single mulberry float on top.They would nail it as soon as it hit the water.Topwater catfishin' with mullberries? Probably not my weapon of choice but it made for a good day.

    You reminded me of something JimInMo. My dad and myself use to commerical fish using hoop nets. My job was to clean the catfish as dad filleted and scored the buffalo. On several occasions when I opened the belly of the catfish a live baitfish would start flopping on the cleaning table.

    I mostly catfish now in in the mississippi river at a lock and damn. The current is amazing and you need something that stays on the hook. We always use a castnet and use shad or skip jack. We typically are fishing for big blue cats so we will hook the entire shad or skip jack. during times when its hard to catch baitfish we will cut them up.

    Crawlife,
    I was fishing on a smaller river here catching cats and while cleaning noticed their bellies were full of persimmons. Checked the next time out and I had been anchored below a persimmon tree that was hanging over the river edge.
