I have heard channel cats love crawfish, has anyone ever had success with them?
If you cant catch fish on crawdads you may as well give up.Almost every fish that swims eats the,just check stomach contents.Which is the problem if you want catfish everything else loves them too.If you want action go for it.:smile2:
Out here in central cali the channel's love them ..But i'd rather do the eating of the crawfish lol So the channel's get everything but them.
ive caught channels on crawfish, the bigger the better though then nothing else can get them...
heck yeah cats love them things,they will absolutely destroy crawdads especially if there soft,if there not soft i just use the meat out of the tails.In my opinion crawdads are the best cat bait you can use.
I have found that when I use Live Craw Fish I dont catch as many fish. I think they go and hide under a rock or burry themselves in the mud a lot of the time. So what I do is hook them in the tail and then step on them to get them oozing. When I do that; its game on.
I get a lot of snags when using them. I think they crawl under rocks. Maybe a slip bobber rig would help this but I also have trouble with that. My stop not never stays where I want it. If I fish them on a fixed bobber it seems like all I get are bass. I have the same problem using salamanders.
To keep them from crawling under rocks you can kill them or trim their legs off, One may also use a carolina rig with a small bobber 8 to 10 inches above the bait to keep them suspended.
Yep. They are like candy to fish! I used to use them a lot.
