    I like fat nightcrawlers or a big wad of Missouri gumbo worms for eaters. My favorites, however, are stink baits for the eaters and cut/live bait for larger cats.

    You can catch catfish on worms all day long, but the bigger fish usually come on cut bait. Cut bait also puts out more scent, and this can be helpful in current.

    If worms are all you have, then fish with them, but it might not hurt to catch a few bream with those worms and expand your range of baits.
