    Livingston is a great lake for blue cats, but you are also close to one of the best for channels...Conroe. Welome.

    Heya, I'm from Jersy Village area here, but we fish the woodlands area up to Lake Conroe.

    Great bait for us in Lake Conroe the other day was Magic Cat whopper shad and Tea's Cured Chicken livers.

    I live in Tyler, Danny Kings is a good bait as stated before but be sure to use a stick and not your hands to bait your hook. Also if you are running lines or jugs try small live perch, from the bank or rod & reel, chicken liver or night crawlers. Two new ones I have used are bait shrimp soaked in vannilla works or 1 pack of black liciorece melted in the micro then mixed with corn meal to form "dough balls" works. give em all a try & have funn

    Danny Kings works well pretty much anywhere. Hogwild is significantly cheaper and I do very well with the red kind. Get a good tube and sponge, mash it in the dip bait and you're set.

    You will do well with minnows, shrimp or chicken livers on Lake Conroe.
    As for the rest have no idea to busy rebaiting hooks with said stuff.
    Good luck and Welcom to The BOC
