Welcome to the BOC im not familiar with the tail water that you are fishing at, but some things that you could try that should work for you, is shrimp, chicken livers, night crawlers, small bluegills or cut shad works great too and a great channel bait that I have made up that seems to work pretty good is cutting some boneless chicken breast in strips and putting garlic powder on them and a lil water and letting them soak for a day or two and it stinks but its great bait to use to catch some cats.

I have had pretty good luck with eater size channles in the Tailrace with dough baits and dip baits. They will pick up a decent blue cat now and then, too, but for the blues I'd rather be fishing with cut herring or shad right now.
