    my favorite baits depend on what im going after so here is a little list

    Channel cats: shirmp, chicken liver, nightcrawlers, cut shad and cut bream.

    Blue cats: shirmp, nightcrawlers, cut shad, cut bream, live shad and live bream

    flatheads: cut bream, live bream, cut shad and live shad.

    i dont like any of the commercial dip or stink baits just never had any luck so i stick to these baits mostly. all of them (except maybe the liver) are really easy to work with so i dont spend time fiddling with my bait. just stick my hook in it and cast. i hope this helped you

    I would most likely say chicken livers but I have in the past also used chicken guts. The tend to stay on better than livers. On occasion I have also used calf liver.

    It really depends on the time of year. Channel Catfish I like many different baits.

    Spring: Fresh cutbait- either white sucker or goldeye
    late summer: Fresh cut sucker and frogs
    late summer into fall: Frogs and the fresh cut sucker

    I have friends that run shrimp boats in NE florida and SE Ga. Lots of time they catch small squid (body 2 to 4 inches long) cats like'em and they really stay on the hook. Plus if you can't go fishing some garlic and butter make the bait into people food....
