    Where can you buy catapula worms? I cannot find any on the trees around here (Ravenden) where I live. I am also looking for some one to fish with, most any day of the week. Don't no any thing about catfishing but am willing to learn. I have an 18 ft. blazzer S/S with a 60/40 jet ready to go. Thanks , Jerry

    Jerry Welcome to the BOC, from So. Illinois. Someone from your area will be along to answer your questions. Catalpa worms are a good bait.

    dog I wish you were here I would give them to you.. My tree is just loaded right now. I may use a dozen or so but the rest will go to seed I guess. I am in no condition to gather them myself. I had a few in the summer and thought they were through but now every time I walk through the yard I bring them in on my shoes. Was out there today and there were hundreds of them on the tree.

    You know I can't go during the week, and we both know squirrel season is about to get in the way, but weekends are open! I haven't heard any good reports lately in local reviers, we should hit one of the lakes one night with some jugs, I'm about ready to make up some more.

    There is a web site (catalpaworms.com) that sells them, but they're pretty pricey. I've been trying to get some, but a lot of the trees around me didn't have any worms this year.

    You can always freeze them. I had a freezer full of them at one point. They're just as good thawed out!

    Where abouts are you located in Arkansas? The town name is unfamilar to me. But I have worms on the trees now if your close to Benton, Little Rock area. I also have some trees sprouting up around here.
