    I just got an idea for a catfish bait cocktail. You will need a cast net. Before you fish, throw your net in places where different baitfish will be. Try to get at least 4 different species of fish that catfish will eat. Get a few of each.

    When you are ready to fish you should fish the same lake where you got the bait. Select one of each of the baitfish and cut a small chunk off of each one. Cut off the heads, tails, sides, wherever you want to cut and string them one at a time onto a large Kahle. You could tip it with guts if you want. For example: Shad head, bluegill meat, skipjack tail, bullhead meat, tipped with sucker guts. Sounds like something the cats would like.

    I have never done this. Let me know if you try it, what combinations you used and how it worked.

    thanks

    for one yes it does sound like alot of work but i also think its pretty pointless because you could you just a gill or just a skipjack and get the same effect

    yeah but Id laugh if he was on to something and it caught fish by the dozens. Point being you never know, fish can be as weird as people when it comes to eating habbit's- one day one thing, next day the next.

    If you havent tried it,you don't know.

    buffet hook, sounds like it would work. It had all of the bases covered.

    How about three hooks... one with cut bait, one with liver, and one with crawler or whatever you choose? Bet they'd nibble away at the chicken liver tho... that seems to make for lots of false alarms.

    I think it's worth a try!

    well, I guess it would work;, Ive heard of people catchin cats on bread, cheese, and meat, so I was thinkin of doin somethin like that, puttin on some bread, cheese, meat, and another piece of bread, maybe some mustard or horseradish, kinda like a fish sandwich, it covers all the bases

    Don't knock it until you tried it. When it comes to catfish, anything goes.
