White Grubs

Discussion in 'Catfishing Baits' started by Catmanjack, Mar 31, 2007.

  1. I was digging in my garden and....

    Just a little ignorance here but can anyone tell me if the white grub-worms that you find in your garden are a good catfish bait??? It would seem that they would be but I have never used them. Any info out there on if they are worth using and if so, what methods of presentation would be appreciated.

    Hey man I would rather use shad or fresh bream before I would handle some grubs like that. The lawn guru who lives next door to me says they are real hard on your grass. :big_smile:

    If they dont work for Cats you can always use them to fish for gills/bream. They sell them here in Ohio for that and usually do fairly well with them.

    I have fish with Grubs before, they are good bait for Bluegills and other Panfish.

    I agree. If you can keep the gills off them they'll work! :confused2:
     
  7. Thanks brothers. I might just try them out on the bluegills as well.

    ive tried them before with limited luck...the only place ive caught cats on them was in farm ponds. and they are hard on the grass and plants..they eat the root system...there are several different kinds but most you find are june bug larvae

    used to use those on the creeks for channel cats. the brothers are right though, they are a pain in the grass! we used to get ours where we dumped grass clippings.
