I was wondering if any body has tried Venison for Bait?
I have a big pool just south of my house it is full of big bullheads from 10 to 12 inches long. Early in the spring before the night crawlers come out deer steak is all I use. They bite it well just not as well as night crawlers. I have never tried it anywhere else but I bet it will work. Its hard fore me to trade deer steak fore bullheads.
I don't know about catfish but it will definately catch me! I love that stuff
I heard they use deer liver for catfishing, they said it's pretty working. but myself never tried it yet.. well if my dad got deer this year, I can ask him to keep some liver for catfishing... but I don't know about deer meat....
i use deer meat alot in the muskingum river here in ohio and i do pretty good....i dont catch nothing very big but i have go 12 pounds on it....its a good thing to use
I have heard that liver is a good bait going to give a try this year
never used deer before but once on the way to lease my 12 yr old son saw a run over bever.he ask me to make him a bever rug.i stoped and picked it up.i skined it that nite next day was to hot to run dogs so we quit hunting.my son took some of the beaver fishing.he slayed a mess of chanels so we had fish insted of deer for supper.
Never tried deer but Jack Rabbit hearts and livers work well. Actually all rabbit gut has worked well for me especially paired with a grasshopper tail
if its meat, and its oily, and maybe has a bit of blood in it. I'm sure it would work. Maybe just not as affective.
venison is to precious to waste on a catfish unless it was road kill.
The reason I asked is that I have had good results with deer meat.
7 1/2 lb. channel and other smaller cats.
The meat I use was cut up by a Shi##y proccesser, that I wont use again
(hair, talon, etc).
Nice and bloody though.
I cut my own meat most of the time, and there is always some bad cuts for the water:big_smile:
This past fall I used deer meat that I had trimmed off deer steaks to fish for channel cats. I soaked it in garlic juice overnight. I used it 5 trips and it was the top producer on three trips. Blood stinkbait was the next best bait. I was fishing on a small-- 200 acre--- lake.
i never heard of using deer meat til i moved to southern ohio from cleveland...and i'll be the first one to tell you i prefer it over pretty much anything i have used....but this summer i'm tring more baits if they dont pan out to be as good as the deer meat i'll go back to the deer meat
5 pound and A 3 pound Channel on the Cumberland River
using chicken liver, shrimp, hot dogs also,but no bites on those.
need fish for bait bad:cool2:
