    Post in the "alternative methods of catching catfish" forum. Those guys can answer most of your trotline questions.

    yes leeches work the bigger the better hard to find big leeches anymore from bait shops tho .

    we usually got ours out of creeks with gravel and or muddy pools using nets , or picking them off your legs lol

    keep them in a container with water and a cooler with ice and they will live for ever .

    also the meat out of clams or muscles work great at times ,, ya can get them out of the creeks also .

    take the kids and turn them loose on a hunt in the creek for a day they will have a blast !!!!:wink:
