First time catfishing my local lake yesterday with rod and reel. It was nice getting a couple good pulls when all I've been doing this year has been crappie fishing with minnows (sicne January). Dont get me wrong....that's fun too but catfishing with chicken livers is a little different. I only set up in one spot...nothing special and fished for a couple hours. Wound up catching two white bass on cut bream and a sand cat, a bullhead, and a channel cat on chicken livers. The larger two went about 2 lbs. a piece. Thinking about going again this evening to see if I can catch a mess to fillet and fry.
