Well, ive been catfishing for a few years now and here's what i usually do... I set up two rods with two hooks on each rod. one rod has bait-holder trebles and the other has some small octopus hooks. on the bait-holder trebles i usually put some blood bait dough balls on. on the octopus hooks i put a chicken liver on one and a couple night crawlers on the other. i prop my rods up pretty high and between the 2nd and 3rd eye-lits (from the end of the pole) i put a bobber on the line and set it up so the bobber is hanging on slack. i watch the bobber as a bite indicator. this is the set-up ive always used. its the set-up my brother-in-law has always used. and its the set-up my dad has always used. i dont do too well when i decide to go nightfishing. i seem to watch my bobber dance around for about half an hour. then i reel in my rigs and rebait my line. every once in a while ill catch a fish or two, but it just seems like a whole lot of excited bobber watching with no channel cats on the stringer. Any ideas, guys?
