First off let me say that I love this site. It is very informative and even though I have been catfishing since I was a little kid I have learned a lot just browsing this site. I have looked through a lot of the bait section and cant say I have seen anyone metion one of my favorite catfish baits...Trout heads. I do some trout fishing too and when I clean them and get them ready to eat I put all the heads in a zip-lock bag and freeze them. Makes for a great catfish bait as it will stay on the hook for a long time and seems to attract the larger cats around. I had a friend that owned a piece of property that had 3 ponds on them that used to be a pay lake, which had been closed down for several years and he turned me onto the trout heads as a bait. We could catch several 20-40 lbs cats on a single head on a good night. Just thought anyone that trout fishes also might want to think about giving it a try. Has worked very well for me over the last few years.
