    Yeah, anything like that will get you a good chance. Try to use them fresh though, also consider using eel, they work good live for big cats. And fillets of Carp also are great.

    Cut the tail and fins off and hook them thru the lips, whole. Or use them live, they catch big Blues, esspecialy in the summer!

    Use a Carolina Rig-

    18 or more inch leader of around 50lb line

    Good sized Barrel Swivel tied to leader

    Put weight on your line, egg weights work good for Carolina Rigs.

    Then tie the leader with the swivel to your line.

    Good luck,

    Zakk.
