    I heard something today that astounded me. A guy was tellin my daughter that he went fishing with his grand father and his grandfather was catching catfish and he wasn't catcing nothing. Later he noticed that his grandfather was eating starburst fruit chews but he was eating one and then putting one on his hook and catching catfish with them.

    Has anyone else ever heard of this???

    This doesn't suprise me. I've heard of a gentlemen catching catfish on those peach flavored rings. Just goes to show you, catfish have a sweet tooth too.:wink:

    Maybe I can catch a catfish as big as one of my kids with these. They sure work on my children! Put the Starburst out and they come runnin'...:big_smile:

    I catch catfish on Strawberry infused maize (carp bait) all the time, so catfish definitely like the fruity flavors from time to time.

    Perhaps they just got done eating a smelly shad and needed something sweet for dessert :)
