Best Bait for eating fish
For small cats, crawlers work best for me. That is, if you can keep everything else from eating the bait first.
This has been a horrible year for me as far as catfishing goes. I have caught 5 turtles and 3 catfish. Two of the catfish were caught on Secret 7 with the biggest being around 2-3lbs channel. The 7 works but boy does it stink.:wink:
got to go with worms
i like to try alot of things
dead minnows,crawlers and secret 7 not in that order but thats what i'll use
My question is??? Where is the (all of the above button) on the poll???:confused2: I fish a variety bait with mixed results depending on time of year, location, and a host of other factors that I can not explain. I fish mostly with natural bait with shad and bluegill being at the top of the list for me. Creek chubs would be second choice.
I didn't see a option for punch bait, and that's what I normally use for eater size fish. All of the bait listed though does catch fish..lol
I catch a lot of eaters on worms Maybe because thats all I fish for them with:smile2:
I'd rather fish with nightcrawlers and minnows. Mostly because I like to fish for anything that swims and maybe I'll also hook up with a crappie, walleye, sauger, or yellow perch to eat.
theres some HUGE carps in a pond i fished before i mean like 3 feet close to 3 1/2 i want to hook one of them wales what would i use to catch em ive never done any carpfishing:angry:
Ken hit the nail on the head here is a example I've got some homemade stink bait that has only worked in the Cumberland river period !!! I have tried it other places . Worms on the West Fork river in WV . Liver down from the boat ramp @ Boonesboro and little minnows at that dam....I have tried theese and more baits at all and more locations shrimp,cut shad,cut gills etc....Had i not tried all theese baits I could not know what works best in each area .Fish can be picky and different in a 1/4 mile stretch of river . Your bait bucket/cooler should be the heaviest part of your gear ! LOL !
on the very rare occassion that i go out to a lake just to catch some eaters or just good off i like to use secret 7. mainly just to be different and to get away from all the dead fish. and when useing it yeah it does stink but you never have to touch it so u can semi stay clean. and anyone who uses shad and what not knows thats almost impossible
For eater size fish i use night crawlers or chicken livers but liver was not listed in your poll
sorry forgot about chicken liver i just made this real quick to start some conversation:smile2:
small fish = Small Bait
Big fish = Big bait
It may not always hold true, ive seen five pound flatheads eat a 8 inch bluegill, but you can surely help narrow the field by using bigger or smaller bait.
went to my pond today bites are getting slow 2 catfish and a bass
eating size cats i find that secret 7 will out fish everything else almost everytime.But i also like using liver and chicken and kool aid
you make think im lying, but add some cheap vodka to your cherry chicken and let it soak over night and it will add a little something extra to it. i dont know why but it works better than plan cool aid.
