I have fished for catfish with a variety of baits with sucess. I know they like variety and you can catch cathfish on almost anything butcatching alot of fish depends on finding that right bait. I never had to much luck on stink baits but i know some people have caught there share of eaters on it. My question is what baits do you have on hand for catfishing? Personally i bring a castnet for shad a ultralight pole for gills and worms for nostolgia!
