I agree with Ranman92....Shrimp works for me. Caught a 12 lb shovel last weekend.
Chicken Liver works for the channels, but I think I'm starting to out grow them.

I prefer to have at least 3 or 4 options to play with.
Nightcrawlers are my old standby, especially if I'm looking for eating sized cats. Plus i'll get a lot of action from other fish. Carp, Goldeye, drum, Sucker. Helps keep things from getting slow.
For larger cats I have a hard time beating a chunk of cut bait. Although I have been experimenting with a small dip tube above the hook, and a chunk of cut bait on the hook. Using the scent to draw them, then let them find that nice chunk of food.
Hotdogs and Koolaid worked gangbusters one trip, but since then have been slow.
I've caught several cats now on my Carp doughballs. I really should buy a can of sardines or tuna in oil and make up some good catfish doughballs someday.
I prefer to fish with 2 rods, and have a different bait on each. Gives me a better idea of what they are hungry for.
