    :confused2: CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHAT THE CATS ARE HITTING RIGHT NOW. SEEMS LIKE EVERYTHING I TRY ISN'T RIGHT. I'VE USED CUT BAIT, STINK BAIT , CHICKEN LIVER, NIGHTCRAWLERS, AND SHRIMP. BEST LUCK WAS SHRIMP BUT NOT GREAT. ANY IDEAS.

    If they are spawning right now they won't bite anything.

    Shad or skipjack...even cut bluegill...its no secret I am a firm believer in fresh cut or whole baits for cats. But I believe in my waters the spawn is on and no matter what you use the bite will be slower than normal..just keep trying they will be hungry soon!:big_smile:
