my favorite is salamanders hooked through the tail, i like leopard frogs too, but the sallamanders have a tough skin and they are hard to get off the hook seem to work the best for me in rivers/creeks

I use a old method my grandpappy taught me!shhh!dont tell nobody!
Take a 5gall bucket fill it with maize,then run it full of water,put a lid on it let it set in the sun a couple weeks,it will turn soured,and extra stinky!cut old plastic milk jugs,or any container,scoop it full of old stink maize and freeze it,take frozen containers fishin in a cooler,not the same one with the beer!when you get to your spot,bust the frozen clumps of maize out of the container and throw them out in the water as far as you can,when they melt the maize spreads out!This will bring all the eatin cats to the spot where the maize is at.After that put on a chunk of liver and hang on!When you clean um you can see thier bellys stuffed with old stinky maize.Well the cats out of the bag now!lol HAPPY FISHING!

I'm gonna have to agree with Doug cause growing up in Cali all my life that was the main bait that you could 90% of the time guarantee that you will come home with some channel cats. But now sense Im in the Midwest I would have to say Don's Catfish Bait.
