    I checked out the story too. Would be nice if you had more than one review. I can`t believe that there wouldn`t be alot of gullible cat fisherman. Heck I`ve spent more for less.

    I read about it a few years ago in a magazine (In-Fisherman?). Haven't heard about it much since.

    Don't think I would trust a caller for cats. For one cats mostly search for food by taste not sound.

    Catfish Connection sells what is called the "Clonk" catfish caller. It says:
    "When plunged into and ripped through the water, the Clonk mimics and intensifies the sound waves given off by struggling baits and creates a feeding response that will bring those monstrous cats out of their holding areas." The device is aluminum and cost $16.95. For an additional $17.95, you can get the instructional video. I wouldn't waste any on my money on it. I'd say Mr. Clonk is laughing all the way to the bank!

    Oh ye of little faith. I am fully trained in the art of catfish calling. For $300 a trip & a hotel room I would be happy to call cats for you all day long.

    I have actually used one and I would say that it did not hurt the fishing. A last weekend I hit a nice flat area. 10 yards of 2-3 ft of water a large log pile and then a drop off to 12 - 9 ft. I sat on the log pile for 3 mins hitting different areas of it. No hits, so I pull the caller out and used it a few time. The gill that I had next to the pile started acting funny and I got a nice hit on eone pole 2 mins later another hit on the 2nd pole. Did the caller produce the bite maybe maybe not, but did it hurt the bite. NOPE!

    In Europe they are used and they are called Clonks! Made of wood or metal and shaped primarily the same. They are effective and will entice the Wels Catfish to become more active. The use and the method of using them can be overdone as the fish become immune to the sound that they make. When the Clonk is employed correctly, the sound travels! It is both on the top of the water where we can hear and also the main area under the water. The sound resinates and the fish are made to be more aggressive, resulting in bites! This is what I know to be TRUE and I would consider it possible to have it work here.

    Im in the process of invinting a new one and it's called "I can call cats"

    Now it appears to look like a empty beer can with holes in it but don't let that fool you. It works like you wouldnt believe......

    For the low price of only 29.95 plus shipping you to "Can Call Cats"

    Troy; I think you might of "personally" emptied too many of those beer cans while inventing that cat caller.
