    what is good bait to use to catch catfish?

    night crawlers, chicken liver, cut up bait fish, even live bait fish for big cats.

          actually anything that stinks or bleeds. Stink bait or chicken hearts work good. The heart is tougher than livers and stay on better. Use a treble hook fished close to the bottom.

                  They'll eat bout anything. Nightcrawlers always work good for me though.

                    Bring worms. Catch small fish, use chunks to get big fish. it feels good catching the bait that caught the bait that caught the fish. A lot more rewarding

                      buy some medium gold fish and but a hole in them so they swim and bleed at the same time it really works

                        My grandfather used hot dogs cut into chunks and marinated them in stinkbait for a few days, we always caught fish.

                            KFC anybody??? We have a large stock pond and have tried all of the above and nothing worked. So somebody suggested we try Kentucky Fried Chicken. Guess what? The Cornel must know what he is doing. We slay the channels every time we go fishing now. All we have to do is stop and pick up a bucket of fried chicken...

                              DrMike, sounds cheaper to buy catfish fillets at a market. But, you do make a point. The more smell you can put out the better.
                              What is that secret recipe from the colonel?

                                That's a nice project! Have you tried the 6.5 Grendel and if so, what's your opinion of it?
