    For cats...i usually use cutbait(bluegills),liver.For bass and crappie,i would use minnows under a bobber.Then for gills,i usually catch them on wax worms.

    I used to fish Argyle some with Dip Bait but never had any luck. I was limited to the shore though. I don't think I've ever pulled a cat out of there.
