Hey fellow members, I am new to fishing for the most part. I will be fishing from a pier on Lake Houston and was wondering what i could possibly do or use to land big blues and channel cats. I have used such things as beef liver,worms, and strawberry doughball. I have also used cut bait but had little success. I want to be able to catch keepers off the pier instead of the little nuisance fish. We have had fish food out in a bucket tied to the pier for a couple of weeks now anticipating warmer weather to fish in. I have read and seen pictures of big blues caught on worms and other common baits. What can i use to increase my chances of catching the bigger fish and what bait works best in Lake Houston? Do artificial stink store bought baits really work here??? Thanks for your time and interests in helping me land the big ones!
