What is a good bait for cats?
Shad worms chicken hearts
Yep, that about covers it!! You could also use cut shrimp or crawfish.
I like to use carp and green sunfish and shad for flaties and use shrimp and sand toads and night crawlers for channels
Welcome to the BOC, Eric. It is a good place to share lies and info.
Welcome to the BOC Eric.I like to use chicken hearts that have sat over night in garlic/salt.
Eric, welcome to the BOC/SOC :cool2:, best catfishing site on the web! Be sure to check out the library, a lot of good info in there.
Our #1 bait for blues is skip jack fresh or frozen, fished whole or cut.
#2 would be fresh caught shad, fished whole, live or cut.
#3 would be Danny kings punch bait
Hi Eric! Welcome to the BOC. To start. What type of cats are you targeting?For starters, I prefer livers, stink bait; experiment with different brands, shrimp and nightcrawlers for CHANNEL CATS. Live bait, like shad, bullhead, shinners, small carp, goldfish, etc. for FLATHEADS. For BLUES, fresh cut-bait like shad, skipjack, etc. Ask around and talk to the locals where you fish. I'm sure you can find the truth in someone. GOOD LUCK!!!!!!:0a26::006:
cradads + worms try some stinkin shad if its now(winter)

take your pick, catfish will eat just about anything if presented right
skipjack, shad, bluegill, nightcrawlers in that order. Then you could try some chicken liver or commercial bait.
I can't guarantee that it will be the same in your area, but up here on the Arkansas River, you can't beat fresh shad or skipjack for blues and channels, although you can have pretty good luck with other baits, such as cut bream, for channels. Cut bait will catch the occasional flathead in the spring, but you'll definitely be better off using live bait.
I have some friends in De Quincy that fish the Sabine river. They use a soap bait on their trot lines. I never learned how they make it but im sure one of the locals could tell ya. They use cottonseed cakes in their hoop nets too. Thats a great state yall live in. I always have a great time there.
Chicken hearts....where do you get them?
ersel knows where to get them in bulk. divide them up in baggies and freeze for year round fun!
has anybody tried turkey liver? stays on the hook better. had good luck using it too.
The best bait i have found has to be shad.
