I heard using leeches will cacth big cat fish is that true. let me know
They are very durable but from my experience shiners, cut shad , bluegill or sunfish are more on the bigcat dinner menu.
Yeah those leeches will just suck catfish right up to them lol.just kidding,yeah they work ok but i think theres other baits out there that work better.I think leeches are one of those baits just about anything will hit on,kinda like night crawlers.
Leeches are a very good and very durable bait. Usually not the best, but very good on setlines.
Never herd of anyone using them for cats,around here they are mostly used for walleye.
Where in the devil do or can you find the little blood suckers anyway?
You can find leaches around mudflats somewhere around here is a thread on how to catch em.
Involves a coffee can and some bait liver or cut up sunfish smash the top flat except the corners.
They work , the only thing I have used them for is on trout lines. Never got anything big but did get a lot of eaters.
I`ve never heard of anyone using them for cats here in Pa.,They use them for bass and walleye though.
I use them alot in resevoirs. I usually catch 5 to 10 pounders on leeches. I put 1 big nightcrawler and two leeches on my hook. My biggest, 13 pounds was caught on this. I think the nightcrawler plus leeches works GREAT.:cool2:
Leeches, will work, at times, caught small cats on rod and reel have caught Flatheads and Blues. They seem to hit on them certen times of year. largest flat 25 and largest Blue 35, You can get them from bait shops here, in early summer most come from, Minn. (As soon as ice out up their.) have ordered them direct, at times.
I`ve used them before in ponds. At times they worked well under a bobber. Always seemed to be in the heat of summer when nothing else worked.
dont know about catfish I know you can catch bass with them
