    next time your favorite river floods take your shotgun fishing with you. any fresh killed bird " check your local game laws " on a 8/0 hook on an inside bend is a hog getter bait. aslo works well fishing eddy currents. PETA loves me:rolleyes:

    Sounds interesting, does it really work well? How about a dead squirrel for chum? Is it only good in high water? Channels, Flatheads, or Blues?

    i bet it works in any moveing water . i just like fishing flood conditions because the water is muddy aand the bites are furious. to answer yes it works very well . i know quite a few ways to catch catfish and this is one of the best. i have never tried squirrel , i like to eat squirrel almost as good as i like to eat catfish. i would try a bloody chipmunk though.
