try em you'll like em. green persimons will catch channel cats on trotlines.
Haven't hear that one in years. When I was a kid my Daddy & Uncle used them alot on trotlines. Thanks for reminding me!
your welcome stickthrower, ive got a million of em. "well 15 or 20 anyhow"
If persimmons work...why not cumquats. I got a bush...
Cept they're poor lil ol mouths draw up, and ya cant hardly get the hook out.
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.
Thats why they work...LOL...they can't even spit the hook back out...LOL....hmmmmm Persimmons soaked in Chicken Blood anyone?....LOL
:0a28: ummm, what is a persimmon?
What about raisins and mulberries, will these flavors work for catfish?
I have read that raisons work for cats in small ponds.
i was in brazil for christmas and we used fruit for bait to catch paku, a relative of the pirahna. i thought that was cool. i got in trouble for eating the bait.
Didn't know catfish liked em. Did know that possums and deer do though when they get ripe. Friend of mines mother makes persimmon jelly. Goood stuff.
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.
