    What kind of bait are you using for cats and where are you using it at?
    I fish at lake Harding. I mostly use chicken liver and shad. I just started using crappie cut bait. Im getting a lot of cats from chicken liver right now.

    whatever i can catch at the time........any panfish, smaller bass, carp, shad, and bullheads or small channels work......big gizzard shad have been easy to catch here lately in shallow water just before sunrise.....

    If I can't get out ahead of time and catch some bream (either whole or to cut, depending on where I'm going to fish) I use whole, raw shrimp. The local Wally sells them for about $5/lb. I then put them in baggies. 12 to 15 per bag and freeze. It's really just fancy/expensive cut bait but it works pretty good in a pinch.
    The chicken livers and stink baits pretty much limit you to channel cats. Blues and flatties want fish and the fresher the better. The shrimp still work for the blues and flatties, though.

    I like to use cut shad or cut crappie for the blues on the coosa, and live bream al ittle later in May for the flatties. Here on Lanier I like cut bluebacks or pennywinkles for the channels.
