Anyone ever used a fish pill? They are the same thing as a puff ball or whatever you wanna call it... It is a small colored styrafoam ball that goes on your hook to keep your bait a lil bit off the bottom. Helps me keep from getting snagged and it has also helped me catch fish when my buddies werent. They were designed for trout and salmon so when you use em for catfish I'm sure the color and size is much less important... Google search fishpill if you wanna see em I didn't wanna seem like im tryin to advertise by puttin the link up.
