are slugs good for cat fishing will thay work
I can't say that I have ever tried slugs for catfish. Never enough of them around. It may be something to look into, but I would assume if you were going to try to catch flatheads with them, you may be better off sticking to live bream. Not saying they couldnt be caught with slugs, but the slugs may be better for channel cats. Next time I see a slug I will keep it and see if it does make good bait :smile2:
nope i've triedum on trotlines,if they were any good i swear i would'nt be findinum on the back porch at night (barefooted)
The snails around the water i fish are good bait. I have never had any luck with garden slugs.
I have only found one use for garden slugs and thats keeping the wife away from my shed. They like to hang out on the little porch for some reason.
guess ill just have to try and find out :lol:
Don't use 'em in salt water:big_smile:
oh your to funny:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
i dont think i could put 1 on a hook!!!! nasty little boogers
Never tried them. But, Hey, if you want to get slimed when you ain't catching cats, that may be the way to go:lol: .
idk if i'd try em for catfish but i know i've used em with success for bluegill
I've Never Tried Using Them But An Old Man Once Told Me When I First Started Catfishing That Slugs Were The Best Catfishing Bait. Like I Said I Don't Know I've Never Tried It, But That's What He Told Me.
the title tells all
I have caught many bass on them but never used them for cats. I would think they would at least catch channel cats
dont know about catfish but the blue gill in my pond go nuts over them a little pinch on a hook caught me 12 blue gills for bait some were big as my hand
I think it's bait for bait
Ok I put it to the test, I found 4 approx 6 inch slugs. 30 seconds after my line hitting the wabash my pole tried running away with about 10 pound channels on the hook. So just by my experience they are GREAT channel bait! It was not even 30 seconds from the time the bait was in the water till I had a nice cat on the hook! Try it, see how they work in your area. I know that in central Indiana area they are awesome bait!
ive never tried them but im going to now..............ive got a bunch of them here around the house..........and they are easy to find !!
I've only tried slugs on two occassions. I used slugs only and nothing else and gave it a good honest try, both times. Unfortunately, I caught nothing. It may be just me not knowing how to properly fish this bait, but when I use other baits I'm certainly more successful. After giving it a shot, I won't use slugs anymore. In my area (Kansas City) it just doesn't appear to be a successful bait choice.
