    Just curious if your setup is similar to my setup pictured? I haven't fished for catfish in 6 - 7 years, but after I get my 2nd boat I plan to use this setup again. It took awhile to fine tune, but it seemed to work well for me.

    If you have refined your system and it works well for you, then by all means use it. It appears your wanting to fish three feet off bottom by the looks of your diagram. There will be times you will need to adjust that. A steel leader is not always necessary.

    Ours is similar but we don't use steal coated line just braid and we dont use swivel, we snell the hook. Everything else is the same except we will use a floater to keep bait off bottom sometimes.

    Nope never tried the 3-way. Just the barrel swivel.

    with variations on the lengths that you're using that's exactly what I set up, and sometimes I'll use two of the 3-way swivels so I can run 2 hooks at a time.
