September 15th I got access to one of our cars so decided to go fishing a small local lake. It was sunny and warm with a slight breeze when I first got to the lake. 13:30 I got my lines in the water. I had a bobber rig for catfish and a small rod for bluegills. I was casting the bobber rig exactly in the deep part of the lake. I used cheery soaked hot dogs, cheery soaked chicken breast, garlic seasoned chicken breast, not even a small bite. I did not have any better luck with the bluegills for my small bobber did not move! It was getting hot and I was getting frustrated so I packed it in at 15:00.
On the way back home I stopped at a spot to see if I could at least catch some creek chubs. I saw that the chubs where there so I tried my luck. I caught a nice size chub in a short time. After that the chubs just kept on pecking at the bait but would take it. So after 20 minutes of I finally gave it up and went home, I at least got one nice chub for catfish bait.

If you chum a little with small balls of bread or small pieces of bread it gets the smaller chubs in a feeding frenzy and then the bigger chubs want in on the action then you just put you worm right around where the bread balls are in the water. I normally use a small piece of red worm or use tiny piece of bread on a #4 or #6 aberdeen hook with a tiny bobber or without a sinker.
