Hi, I just joined today and I am looking forward to talking to all y'all. Maybe someone can answer a question I have. I have been told that mudcats or(pollywogs) are good bait for yellowcats . I put about 20 on my tortline awhile back and they finally died after being covered in moss. I cut the fins off prior to using them. I have heard that they are good bait from the game warden and reading in mags. Do any of you out there have any experience with them? I have plenty and sure would like to know. Thanks :confused2:

Don,
First off, welcome to the BOC. Lots of good folks on here and lots of good information on catfishing. Mudcats do make good bait for flatheads. They are very hardy and will stay alive for quite a while.

Good luck to you,
Bobby

mudcats are good bait for flatheads that said it sounds to me like your bait is getting down in that moss and hiding.try and set your lines a little off bottom or move them to a place with a hard bottom where they cant hide.

welcome to the B.O.C., best catfishing community on the planet. Yes they do work, I dont use them much because I dont catch them often. But when I did, I have caught a flathead or 2 on them.

flatheads will eat mudcats clipped or not. and you won't catch a mudcat too big to use as bait. they are a good option when the shallow water will kill bream when the water warms up.
