    Chicken Livers are your best bet if you want to find out if there are cats in the water. After that use your whole arsenal. I always scout with livers first than drop in the big bait after they start biting. Or I move if they don't bite.

    Sound like liver and worms. Or maybe some Magic Bait. :wink:

    Welcome to the BOC

    if using skips I would cut the rounds pretty small, be sure to match your bait to your hook size, probably 6-7/0 circle hooks would be sufficient, perhaps even smaller if you wanted.

    Good luck on catching your BOC hall of fame channel cat.
