    I've used it a few times over the years with good success.

    I guess I ate a hundred pounds of fish when I was a kid... and all of them caught on Catfish Charlie. It and worms were the only choice for channels.

    I keep a jar of Charlie in my boat all the time for when I feel nostalgic. It still works it's magic.

    I'm considering offering the large tubs on my website. What do you all think?

    I love using catfish charlie. I grew up with it, since it was the one stink bait my father used. While I use other stink baits now, I still make sure to have some catfish charlie in the tackle box.

    I have had real good results with the blood B type and would like to find a outlet for the large tubs at a reasonable price.

    I think Catfish Charlies is one of the best stink baits out there. I especially like the SHAD. There is always a big bucket to be found in my boat. The Blood Dip bait is also good. I have caught some large Channels on the Shad.Bass Pro Shop carries Charlies in the bulk in their stores. I have not seen it in their catalogs. I hope this helps.

    I didn't know they made large tubs of it. That's all my dad used when I was a kid, and I have great luck with it also. We usually used the Pole Cracker (hard to find here now) and the Blood. I've had good luck with the ones in the purple and green label also (can't remember the names).

    I'd love to find some large tubs of the Pole Cracker and Blood bait!

    Yes, I would recommend it on your website. My favorites are Catfish Charlie, Rusty's, and Sonny's. Maybe you could offer large and small tubs of each? I would also recommend offering Looper Rigs and worms for use with the bait.

    I use it exclusivly when I am trying to stock up for a big fish fry. My buddy last year tried to use everything but Charlies just because I use it so much. He never once out fished me. Been useing it since I was a kid and will continue to do so.
