    A few summers back I was on the Hooch and I noticed some white bootles floating down the river. I turned around theres about 10 more spread out. I realized that someone was upriver letin jugs loose and surnuf about 200 yds upriver was a boat drifting behind them. When the guy got closer I pulled up the anchor and eased over to ask him how he was doin and said they had a few 2-4 lbs and I asked what he was using he points at some little square chunks of Ivory soap.
    I have heard of people using Ivory but I kinda always shruged it off as BS
    He about fell outa the boat when I told him I had caught two 8lbs and a 12lbs Blues on live bream and let them go!

    Just wonderin if anyone else uses Ivory for small cats?
    I'm also tryin to get my 10 posts!

    Welcome to the Boc.

    I use Zote soap myself, the pink color. It seems to out fish the white. I only use the Zote on my Trot lines. Soap is a slow bite bait but it is very effective in the waters I fish. I have found that your wasting your time trying to use it on Rod&Reels.

    Once again, Welcome aboard the Boc express...
