Have you had any luck with Berkley power bait catfish bait.
Never had any luck on any stink. Keep it with the cutbait or liver and worms for the channels. I use beef spleen quite a bit too. If you have a meat packer in your town, that's where to get it. Good luck.
Couple weeks ago I caught a real nice channel on crappie bites.
a guy at dicks told me a piece of rainbow trout... is another
good bait for cats
No, never had any luck on Berkley's or most other dough baits for that matter. My preference is a good dip bait like Sonny's.
I haven't caught anything with it.
Never tried the catfish stuff, but I've had pretty good success with catching bream on the crappie bites and fake maggots.
I tried the berkley power bait chicken livers and the dough balls, i never even got a bite
NOPE, I tried it several different times, not one bite on it.
My dad always said that lures are designed to catch fishermen more than the fish.
From the way it sounds, stinkbaits are catching their share of fishermen too. Who would of thunk it! :big_smile_2:
I've had good luck some days and no luck at all others with it so I guess it's all up to the fishies pallet for the day!
I personally like to use Night Crawlers and Crayfish!
I whole-heartedly agree!:big_smile:
Works for me. This past Winter for about 3 trips all I could get them to bite was the Berkely Catfish Chunks. The ones that feel like rubber. Gives you something to fish with if you can't catch shad.
chicken liver, shrimp, homemade stink bait
I tried the Berkley's fake liver twice. I never had a single bite on it, and I was catching plenty on the other rods I had baited with real shad and cut carp. That was enough proof for me, I don't have to ever try it again now.
Back in my Bass Fishing days I prefered the Berkley Power Worm over all others. The smell made the bass to hang on a few seconds longer which accounted for more hook ups. I have never tried the Berkley Power catfish bait. :lol::smile2:
I'm with Mickey on this -- the Berkley Power soft plastics worked well for other fish (i.e. Ba$$, crappie, sunfish, etc.) but I haven't tried their catfish bait.
I will say that you can catch eater channels on Bee-Jay doughbait (made in North Kansas City, MO) and I've even made my own doughbaits that have caught some fish. However, it is my opinion that non-native baits don't work as well as native baits...but everyone gets lucky every once in awhile. I'd recommend using some Power Crappie Nibbles to catch a few bluegill (or other native non-game fish) and use THOSE for bait. :wink: But hey, I'm just as full of it as anyone.
I caught a couple small channels on the berkley powerbait liver scent. probably 3-4 of them all in one day - first time i tried it. Next time, nothing. Tried their gulp liver. Nothing.
Bought my first pack of it early spring and found it useless.
Nada on the Berkley Power Bait for catfish. Even bought their liquid catfish attractant and squirted onto the dough bait nothing. Had one bite and was quickly dropped this was about two years ago. I tried several times eventually it got all squishy from leaving in the trunk and threw it out.
