bait option for catfish....

Recommended Posts

Ever try bacon? I remember using it on catfish when I was a kid. Then recently my son Lucas wanted to try catfishing so we have been getting out in the Dayton area catching some. Tried the chicken livers, which really calls 'em in, but they are notorious for flying off the hook when casting, so we use thick sliced bacon. It stinks, the kitties love it and it doesn't fall off the hook...it stayed on really good! My son likes to use cut-bait too, so to get more life out of it we take about half a slice of bacon and thread it through the hollowed abdomen and hook either end to the circle hook. Gives it some additional scent for longer life.

Bar soap has been know to be a very aggressive channel cat bait. My grandpa swore by Life Boy, but I heard Zest is the best grin!

sometimes I can't tell if you guys are kidding or not. I end up asking myself, "are they just being funny, or are they just plain crazy?" laugh

It's a good thing.

My Great Grampa swore by plug tobacco. His technique:

Tear off a plug of Red Man. Toss it into a snag. The catfish will come up and suck it in. Walk a short way downstream of the snag, and when the cat comes up to spit, whack him on the head with a baseball bat.

I regret that I never got to see this in action.

I'd thought that was a bass technique?

I thought fish hated tobacco. I know they use it with large sting rays that are holding at the bottom. They get right on top of the ray and drop down a second line with tobacco on it. I guess they can not stand it and make a run.

Yup, anyone who has ever caught a stingray or skate will tell you that they are the toughest fish in the sea to reel in, pound for pound, simply because of the way they are built. The biggies in asia stick to the bottom and you can't pull them up, but get a wad of tobacco down near 'em and they'll unstick themselves.

    • I never said that at all but my choice of "grill" or "smoker seems to bother you for some reason.   It's OK if you are a little bit jealous of my pellet smoker.....    
    • How does the cold smoke accessory work? I wouldn't fathom doing any this time of year or does it have a built in ice tray to keep foods cool?. If not any grill or smoker would do the trick in the cold. I'm with others,  having room to hang for long smokes works the best. It is a nice concept though.
    • The fatty was good! Got up at 6:30 am Friday morning to put it on the pellet grill.
