Just a newbie, but use chicken livers with pretty good success.

My favorite channel cat bait is the classic night crawler. It's the one bait that will never let me down for channels.

Just tried danny kings Punch bait for the first time today and i gotta say i was very impressed, the cats love at and you CAN NOT throw that stuff off the hook.It says on the tub to use treble hooks but at the end of the day i was even using bare circle hooks and still couldnt throw that stuff off. This stuff will ALWAYS be in my boat from now on.

Back before flats were in the river,my buddies use to throw livers for channels,while fishing at night.I used to spank them silly using raw shrimp:wink:During the day,I caught more 10# + channels on a carolina rig ,with a large shiner on a floating jig head, than anything else.The only problem I can't find any floating jigheads with real strong hooks.They straighten real easy:sad2:

I bring frozen shad, shrimp or nightcrawlers to target channel cats. I use a slip rig with a treb hook just below the sinker, and a two foot leader below that. Berkley Powerbait (liver flavor) goes on the treb for added scent, and the main bait floats downstream on a big circle hook.
