    Hello cat fisherman. Greetings from Tennessee! I made a discovery you will want to try. I have always used garlic on chicken pieces to catch catfish. I tried an experiment. I took some curry powder and sprinkled on my chicken bait and let it marinade overnight. I took chicken with garlic to a stocked catfish lake and my chicken with curry powder. Hands down curry won out over garlic 2 to 1!
    Every time I used curry I got bites almost immediately while my garlic chicken was passed up. I used two hooks and every time I caught catfish on the curry!
    Curry has a powerful smell much stronger than garlic. The catfish love it! Try it you will like it!

    Terry,
    Welcome to the board.
    Curry powder has long been used as a bait additive by carp anglers so it makes sense that catfish would like it.
