Hello all, I've just moved to Fayetteville NC recently and I'm trying to learn to catfish on this beautiful river here (cape fear). From what I've learned on this site plus talking to locals, it seems bream are the bait of choice here. I'm not picky about what type of catfish, or even the size, although bigger is always better, I just want to get some fish on the end of my lines. A local here showed me a pond in his neighborhood where I can catch some bream, so I caught about 10 or so the other day and put them in the freezer in vacuum sealed bags. I could go out there again and catch a few live ones before we go fishing tonight, however, that would eat into our fishing time since we're going right after work today. My question is whether using the frozen bream as cut bait will be just as good as live bream, or is it worth it to lose an hour or so catching some live bream before we head out? Thanks, I will let you guys know if we have any luck tonight.
