Hi guys, I have been having problems hooking into Catfish. My friends and I went to Contra Loma reservoir in Antioch, California last weekend. Two of my friends have a float tube and were catching some catfish suspended from the bottom. I don't have a float tube, so I was fishing from a dock. I decided I would try a slip float rig so I could suspend my bait down to about 25 feet.My problem is that I would get hits where my bobber would bob down a couple times, and then it would just stop.. I was using chicken liver. I dunno if I should try something like Mackeral or what.. I justw anted these damn cats to take the bait and keep it down... any suggestions are appreciated.
