    My friend went fishin' not long ago and told me he and another friend had good luck with corn that had soaked with Papa John's Garlic Sauce. They had a couple big ones, but lost them. Anyone else tried this?

    sorry i have never tryed it before but from the way it sounds i dont think i would try it.. Sounds like a fish story to me. But you never know cats will eat anything .. i think you would have better luck catching one of my college friends with the Papa John's Garlic Sauce lol :cool:

    They may be onto something with the garlic sauce. I pesonally use raw shrimp still in the shell soaking in either vanilla or garlic sauce as my never fail tournament bait.

    Sounds plausable to me. Ive heared of using corn for carp and I bet the sauce would make it better. I think I'll give it a try for catching creek chubs! It also gives me a good excusse to go to Papa John's! :rolleyes:

    Addicted2cats if the garlic doesn't work for those chubs steal a hand full of that good ole hard (dry) kitty food. Throw that in your trap and in short while you'll have all the shiners you can use on a good day. Works great in swift water too.
    Good Luck,
    Don

    I used to carp fish a lot. and throw gallons of boiled field corn plus some cheap canned corn and cream corn, as chum. The next day I would fish with the field corn, which the carp preferred, or canned sweet corn. I used to catch a lot of channel cats on the sweet corn. Nothing over 5-6 lbs. usually 1 to 2 lber's. I had a ball using ultra light tackle.

    shortshank, thay kitty food sounds like a great idea! I have been putting Bill Dance fish chum in a bag in my trap, but that hasent worked. Though today, I caught five six inchers using a small fly hook and a little piece of spam. I like that method because you only catch the bigger ones because the small ones can't take the bait.
