    I've heard that clam snouts are a good bait to use for channels and other types of catfish, but I don't know what they are. What part of a clam are they? Are they available in grocery stores?

    They are the breathing tube of a clam. They look like a tube of meat about the size of your little finger, with a black membrane over them. They are available in some bait shops. They are excellent bait for eater size blues and channels.I have caught several fish over 10# on them.

    I don't know what part of Va. you are in, so I can't tell you where to look for them, but I've never seen them in a grocery store.
