the last day I was fishing for striper's I was told that the red meat off a striper is good catfish bait. Wish I would of thought of that on the 1st day there, I'd have a gal. zip lock of the stuff. The way it is I got around 2 lbs. think I'll give a try this week. Has any one ever saved it for bait and how did it do? :0a28: I'll let you know how it does.
