    I only fish the Mississippi River here in Wisconsin and I use an 8/0 Owner hook with a no-roll sinker ranging from 1 to 4 oz. On that rig the 3 baits I prefer are bluegills, bluegills and more bluegills ranging from 5" to 7 1/2". Good luck................

    For channel cats, use an egg sinker or no roll sinker. Tie on a steel leader to hold the sinker on the line. Pick up some stink bait tube worms. You can buy these bait holders with line on them. Tie a good loop in the end and attach it to the leader. Make sure the bait holder is dry when you put it in the stink bait.

    Im not sure where at in wisconsin your fishing but i run the mississippi on pools 11 and 12 and use shad ALOT. get yourself a thrownet and learn to throw it well. you won't have to buy much bait at all!

    Channel cats bite on most anything , start with stink bait ,nightcrawlers , cut bait , minnows , suckers etc. Be aware of the new laws on transporting live bait from other waters , its illegal unless its from a sanctioned bait dealer , I like to use a small silver spinner in addition to my bait ,works well Try the Wolf river ,three way swivel rig . later jay jay
