I just watched that video. I know Dieter is making a video, but dang that guy talks a lot.
Sounds like a good plan GP. When a cat decides to eat he will eat about anything. But I think does prefer some things over others. And I have watched Bass and panfish do what I consider a reaction bite. I would think catfish would do the same. Now I have nothing against worms or chicken liver for channels but I have had good success with cut gills, shad ,,,,,fish. I generally cut a piece about the size of a little finger. Maybe bigger minnow size. Leave a lot of hook exposed. Now you are bank fishing and I am boat fishing,,,,usually drifting or trolling while dragging baits.
