    I'm really starting to get into catfishing and was wondering if there are any real hot spots to catch big cats in northeast Indiana? I'm having trouble finding a place to catch them with any size to them. Also what's the best type of bait to use? I've been using chicken liver.

    Hey Jeremy. My answer would be not sure to the where to but as far as bait it may be a little trial and error for the area your fishing. Chicken liver,Soft Craws,Chubs,Cut Bait, And im going to test out this Secret 7 dip bait . Give those each a shot and see if one produces better over a period of time or just use a combo of the ones that seem to work best.

    Well first of all welcome to the BOC, next I really don't know if anybody is gonna really wan't to give up thier hot spots so easily, so, good luck on that one. All I can tell you is try the Res. at Salamonie or Huntington, I've had pretty good luck on these bodies of water, and try using cut gill or shad, maybe creek chubs if you can get them, fish early mornings or late evenings. Everytime someone goes fishin' they are not always gonna catch fish but it sure is fun being out there tryin'. GOOD LUCK AND GOOD FISHIN"

    Getting ready to go out of town for a week or so, but will definitely get ahold of you when I get back. Thanks-Jeremy.
