    I know a game warden in seb. county that told me that if you drill holes in a bucket top,side and bottom. Then fill it w/ dog food. tie a small dai. cord to it.
    sink it about ten foot out. you will catch tons of catfish. and it is legal to do!:cool2:

    Yeah it will bring in a lot of the big fish that live in the lake, A LOT of small fish too. I think the bream and bait fish are more attracted to it than anything.

    Welcome to the BOC Bryan. Yes that idea will work. You can check the BOC Liabrary for more info on chumming and anything else about catfishing. Enjoy.

    Welcome aboard. And yes it works, along with several other methods also.

    Try sweet feed in the place of dog food as it's much cheaper. We buy ''sweet 10'' at the co op. It is horse and mule feed around 5.00 for 50 lbs.:cool2:

    Welcome to the BOC Bryan. As the others said look in the library for other chum methods.
