    When useing dip baits, you will learn to carry different brands on any one trip. Catfish will relate to one bait over another. The fish will finally tell you which one is prefered that trip on that lake. I carry several brands. Sonnys blood, Wicked Stickey, Catfish Charlies in shad. I've had lots of success with each, but at the same time one of them may not be the answer every time on every lake.:lol::big_smile:

    i like using sonnie's cuz it will almost always catch you something, but like the others said, carry different baits with you.
    the other thing is the dip worms, differnt types work better in different conditions.

    Sonny's and Rusty's are my favorite. I just bought some Looper rigs and am anxious to try them with Sonny's.

    I have to agree with Mickey on this one!

    I find myself taking two Dip-Baits with me ("Wicked Stickey" & "G & S") when I hit the water Cattin'.

    i have never presonally had anyluck with store bought baits i, stick to using bait fish mostly its also a lot cheaper to buy a thing of night crawlers but a crawler out on a hook and see if it gets hit while fishing for bream and then once you catch some bream use them either live or cut.

    If the dip baits aren't working, I've found that using tiny cuts of cut bait..... it doesn't have to be fresh, frozen is ok.....works very well. It will attract about the same size cats you'll catch on dip baits.

    baits are like most baits you have to try a few different ones to find the one they like at that time. What works one day may not the next, but I will say Sonny's is one that seems to work most anytime.
    I use it alot and it works most every time.

    Thanks for the advice. I used some Wicked Sticky and Sewer Bait and it worked like a champ. So I will carry some different baits for sure. Also used some cut Shad and had some luck it was the packaged shad not fresh. The thing that really works is the Looper rigs. Take care and God Bless.

    One of the things that needs to be done on most any of the dip baits is to rember to stir it to keep the oil mixed. Those looper rigs are great but even they have a hard time holding the bait if there is a layer of oil on the top that coats the rig befor the bait contacs the rig.

    I agree with Loop. I like to stir my dip baits often and like the thickness of a thick milkshake. The looper rig is a must for dip baits. If you have not used them yet. Then you must like the extra work. Bait less ,fish more,order some.:lol::big_smile:pS: You can thin your dip bait with corn oil, or thicken your bait with corn meal. I hope this is of some help.
