    Hi everybody! I was watching Animal Channel and they were catching huge cats on garlic! Has anyone tried that? I always use worms, or chicken livers.

    I've used garlic powder a few times to spice my liver but never whole garlic....sounds like it could possibly work though

    Rob Welcome to the BOC, from So. Illinois. One of my favorite baits is to take shrimp and soak it in minced or powdered garlic. Place in zip lock bag and keep in refrigerator for a couple of days, take it out and go catch lots of fish. It it also an effective drift bait.

    Thanks Mickey, that is a great idea! So should they be cooked shrimp, raw, shelled? Or does it really matter at all? When I put them on the hook, does I need to use a sinker so it goes to the bottom? Sorry for all the questions, looking to do something differnt then the usual chicken liver.

    Thanks!
    Rob

    I use garlic spray on cut shad when fishing for stripers up the river in the spring. It works great for catfish too. :wink:
