Sonny's is an excellent bait. The only bait I've ever fished with that catches more catfish is Cattracker baits. Jo Jo's Pole Snatcher and Wicked Sticky being my favorites. Yesterday I fished for 4 hours and caught 200 plus fish, with the majority of them pushing a pound and the biggest being around 2 1/4. I chum with cracked corn/milo to get them whipped into a feeding frenzy. I chummed 10 gallons yesterday, I normally only chum 5 gallons. God bless.
