    i personally think they cost too much when you can throw the cast net and get you a bunch of fresh one right out of the river

    I've never caught any cats on any catfish bait from Wal Mart, or on any other bait sprayed with their 'attractor' scent. I once baited up a 50 hook trotline with fresh cut shad, spraying Wal Mart's attractor scent for catfish on every 3d hook. I caught a nice mess of cats on the untreated baits, but didn't catch a single one on the baits that had been sprayed; the turtles wouldn't even touch them.

    Ive got cats on stink bait from walmart but thats it. I bought some of those shad along time ago but never tried em out cause im always catchin fresh bait. I might try them this weekend and cut em in half so that cats can smell em better. I wounder if all the presertivies in em turns cats away?

    I think cats can tell a difference between shad that are from that specific lake or river and ones that arn't. Like if a neighbor brought you a sandwich, it'd taste and look (smell for cats) different than if your wife made it how your used to..even if it was the same kind. Thats just what I think so I always TRY to use fresh caught bait, caught out of the same place I am going to be fishing. Good luck

    Waste of time and good money. If you look at that stuff close most of the oil is taken out of them.. What do the cats go after ,oil and smell. If no oil no smell. Don't buy it.

    I didnt see the sense in paying for something i could go catch for free,and be better quality.
