i just finnished reading an article in the new in-fisherman. it was insites of two formatable catfishing gurus,moyer&jamison. both sudjested they age thier baits in the fridge for a few days. the reasoning behind this is that the bait developes a closer match to the forage fish are feeding on!(aka a dead aroma) i found this very interesting,and logical. i am intreeged by the winter time blue cat habits. since i dont have any to fish for close to me, i thought i would run it past the experts in the B.O.C. your input, both pro and con, will be greatly apriciative.
