Hi, I am new to ths Forum, and I haven't fished in about 15 years up until last week. In Erie, on the Peninsula, I found an inland pond with some good (to me) size Catfish that I am determined to catch. I have had no luck yet however. I guess at this point I need to know what is the best bait and techinques. I tried hot dogs ( I have seen that many times on various web sites) worms, and doughballs with no success.:sad2: Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
