    Hey guys, I know my favorite bait is cut chicken breast but I was wondering. What are ya'lls favorite baits and in what kind of conditions do they work best? Thanks.

    but really, whenever i kill a deer during deer season, ill use whatever scrapes i can and try to go catfishin while there still warm. cut some deer guts up and its like a 4 course meal to cats. but if its not deer season then ill use chicken livers or gizzards. also i use gills or any kind of baitfish i can get my hands on.

    I will use shrimp soaked in vanilla. Works great all year round.

    If you are fishing in a really muddy river or pond Goldfish work real good. They shine better than any other bait that I have used. Now if it is not to muddy some shad or minnow will do just fine. And of course the always famous chicken gizzards.

    Does chicken breast work well? Do you soak it in anything?
