    Here in South Louisiana, muscadine grapes work well too, even for flathead. They are a natural food along the bayous, and the cats love them when they are ripe and dropping.

    What about raisins and mulberries, will these flavors work for catfish?

    Dink, You need to try a green persimmon. Just so you can appreciate the full flavor that the catfish luv sooo much.

    Fruit may work, a friend of mine swears he catches cats to 30lbs on prickly pear apples (a cactus that grows around here) when they are ripe. Can't say I have ever tried them, but he catches lots of fish on something.
