    I have a bud that has a pond in S. Illinois thats full of channels. He feeds them pellets regularly and we catch them on dip bait and crawlers. They seem to do best on the dip bait though.

    We use small pieces of deer liver in a pond we fish...Works great and it won't come off the hook, multiple fish on one bait....
