New to Catfishing: what would you say the best bait is to use on Channel Catfish
For eating size cats use worms or chicken liver . both are slimy and nasty but if you want to catch fish this is what you need to use.
Use what ever bait fish are in the water and legal to use. For me its eels that knock em dead.
Use a punch bait. CJ's punch bait works real good. I always use punch baits when fishing for channels
Fresh cut shad works best for me.
shrimps a good bait down here
dough balls (blood or liver flavor) work as good as chicken liver, but stays on longer and doesn't cast off near as often
Id go with chicken or beef liver or shrimp,the brown uncooked kind dont get the pink ones thats already been boiled.I think in the library it tells you how to cure your liver so it will stay on the hook better and wont have to use thread or anything else to hold it on the hook.
If your trying for the medium sized cats then you might want to try some .59 cent hot dogs and trimmings from a butcher shop. these are the main things that i catch 60% of all my cats on.
Hey there Monimoon,
Welcome to the BOC, I've tried Danny King's and had great success!
I have caught more this winter on DK's punchbait than anything else..
Well I got to go with my old stand-by for getting the Channels:
"Wicked Stickey Dip Bait" :confident:
That Bait has got me Channel from under 1lb to many over 15lbs.
And even one that was 21lbs.
So I guest what I'm trying to say is - If the fish is anywhere in the area, you will catch him on that Bait.
Take It Easy,

Ive caught channels on just about everything but when Im specifically going after channels chicken liver is my choice by far.
chicken livers work pretty well where I fish.Also use night crawlers,hotdogs,soap,shrimp....... you name it I believe I have about tried them all:wink:.But the chicken livers have worked the best.
I like blue gill sides,also crawdads-crickets-worms and bee jays.
Strike Kings Catfish Dynamite has always produced channels for me.:wink:
Raw shrimp works the best for me.Next would be anchovies.
Any of the prepared baits.
Cut skipjack, shad, bluegill, nightcrawlers. Yes I said nightcrawlers! If you are trying to catch channels that are good eating size they work great. I don't have much faith in homemade or commerical baits.
i like to use hot dogs
