what is the weirdest bait or odd bait you ever used to catch a blue cat?
I once saw a guy using marshmellows to catch carp, hook into an 18 pound blue. The marshmellows would float for about 10 minutes, and then slowly sink. I would have never thought to have used marshmellow for anything but hot chocloate and smores!
ive never caught a blue cat, but i heard of a taco smashed up and put on a hook
that was me who used a taco lol but it caught a channel cat
I didn't catch the blue but I saw one eat a duckling before.
I caught one of my first blues on a fried chicken leg in the Cape Fear River
i caught a few off my dads rod a couple times and hes pretty fast....lol. aw you said bait.:roll_eyes: i ve caught a few on stew beef.
I have always heard that Dove soap works well. Cut them up into cubes and they will float off the bottom.
I guess the weirdest thing for me is a rattle trap while bass fishing.
I read an article in VA game and fish that one man used back chickens from his hen house and he would put them on there alive.
I caught a 19.9# Flattie once on a 3"black mister twister on 4lb test on a 5.5 foot berkely rod with a ultralight spinning mitchell reel. Took me almost an hour to get him in.
Don't tell me that! Now I'll be looking for a loop hole around the federal reg. on using ducklings for bait! (I'm joking of course!)
I've heard of people catching cats on freedom fries!
Caught a 4# blue on an crank bait once.
i once caught one on red licorice.
never have caught a blue cat before would like to some time tho but i did catch a 28 pound flathead on a doughball while fishing for carp one night.
There was a post earlier this year about a PB&J sandwich being used to catch 2 blues during a lunch break... I still have yet to get out there with PB&J sandwiches to test this theory... they get made at home then somewhere between making and going fishing they disappear (usually in to my belly)... but i'm going to play around with it the next time I go to the Potomac and see what comes of it...
I do know they love a 1/2" piece of a $0.99 red hot dog. It has to be the cheap red ones. One spring that's about all they would bite. If you have not tried it, it's worth a try.
AWWW, The red hot dog!! As a kid it was all I had to fish with and IT WORKED!!:big_smile:
I caught an 8# blue on a rattle trap in a pond! I thought I had a record bass on!
caught one on a crankbait.
We heard from some old dogs that they had used blacke and red licorice. Tried it, it worked
