    Wow! This is all I have to technically say about all the variations of baits that you can use for Catfish Bait...
    I have virtually tried everything thing that, I can possibly think of to use in bait making. Don't get me wrong, I have great results when I am out on the water, from dough baits, stink baits, worms, hotdogs, Anchovies, Shad, etc....
    To cut things short & make this breif..
    CAN ANYONE OUT THERE SHARE SOME OF THERE BULLET PROOF BAITS, BAIT RECIPES, OR SECRETS WITH ME.
    I am not new to the fishing game, in fact I am on the water 5 out of 7 days a week, fishing is my second life. I am here to say that I would like some insight on some ideas that you my fellow fisherman might have.

    Just about the time you think you have the "bulletproof" bait. the water temp/barametric pressure/lunar cycle/shad fly hatch/butterfly effect from hong kong, throws everything off and you have to start all over.. best bet is to just show up at the water with 2 - 4 good baits and see what they feel like having for dinner on that particular occasion.
    i have seen several nights that "whats for dinner" has changed when the sun went down or air temp hit a certain temp. I usually take a bucket of cheese bait (the old back up), and some shrimp, liver, or cutbait. throw cheese out on one pole and play spin the wheel for the other just to see what they trigger on.
