    I always used Sonny's in my local lake, it works pretty well. I tried Secret-7 last summer and after many successful trips, I'd say it works better than Sonny's for me. I had never limited out (ten 12"+ fish in Michigan) before, but did so with Secret-7 a couple weeks ago, and got nine a week ago. Never had that sort of luck fishing from just one spot on the shore of a lake with Sonny's. The fish in my avatar was caught with Secret-7 during the afternoon on a hot day.

    I use Sonny's as well. I think Secret Seven stays on the looper rig better:wink:

    my favorite is secret 7 followed by sonnys.that secret 7 is devastating on eater size channels,i never go out without it.sonnys is also a really good bait i have good luck with.but if i had to choose one it would be the secret 7.i dont waste my money on none of the rest of that junk,ive tried themand they flat dont work.

    I don't mean to come off on the wrong foot but after spending 40 dollars on secret 7 and dip tubes minni furry thingies. I am very unhappy with the results. >. Fished for 8 hours with it under slip floats and on the bottom and got nothing on it. Fished with Minnows and i got 7 fish right beside the rigs.


    I have been a succesfull catfisherman and i also chum sometimes with soured milo. I just don't understand how this stuff works for you guys.:angry:

    I love Secret 7, and have had excellent results with it. It has outdone every bait I've fished it with, side by side.

    But, speaking of side by side, here's something interesting I learned that I never would have believed if I had not seen it with my own eyes.

    Me & my Dad were fishing Stillhouse lake in Temple,TX, both of us using Secret 7. I was using a Furry Thang on one rod and dead red dip tube on the other, and he was using some kind of nylon batting material on his rod.

    He kept getting bites and catching fish, and I was getting nothing at all, fishing my bait, literally, about 3' from his. I was baffled.

    I finally took off the Furry Thang and put some of the nylon batting on my hook, loaded it up with Secret 7, and behold! I started getting bites and catching fish also.

    No idea why they only wanted to hit the batting material that day, but it's a fact.

    well you know i had that same problem with danny kings punch bait.everybody was talking it up how good it was and they dont go out with out it.so i got some used the whole friggin tub and not even a nibble.BUT if you just used it once i wouldnt give up on it yet bro.the first time i used the 7 i didnt catch anything either but now its like someone turned on the light switch and they have been snatchin that stuff as sonn as it hits the water.give it a little time.if your using the furry thing switch to the dip tube for some reason i find they hit that better then the furry thing.

    Do you use a full tube or cut it up into thirds like he does in his vids?
