Best catfish bait and places,please.

Postby countrygirl40828 » Tue Jun 07, 2011 12:57 pm

I have it bad; catfish fever that is, I have tried alot of things and places but would like to hear from people from here. My best bait so far is slim jims and spam (not together). I go fishing every chance I get, but for some reason this year the cats' seem to have my full attention. I love em all but they are my main focus this year, so what do you use and where? Record fish stories and tall tales are also welcome.

Catfish is the easiest fish to find bait for. My brother swears by deer meat.

Dog turds... The dried out white ones... An old man I knew used them and always brought home fish...

I have heard deer meat not tried it yet.

JAWG- wouldn't doubt it I once tried oysters soaked in red koolaid with diced garlic after i let it set outside overnight. It caused a fellow fisherman to gag. Seems the worse it reeks the better they like it... :lol:

Get some of your buddies and go seine some minners... Get a couple cases of beer... Ride around and drink the beer with the minners in the trunk... DO NOT change their water... After the beer is all gone and everyone has had a nap then the minners will be ready for catfish bait...

You can drink anywhere you want just make sure you keep the minners in the trunk all day in the sun... Usually around 9:30 or 10:00 PM they are ready to use...

The waters from about Blair and up should be okay to fish in but PLEASE y'all don't get in the water or eat anything out of the creeks or lakes here due to an advisory on the Kentucky Water website. Just giving a heads up!

This is just for mercury contamination but I thought it wouldn't hurt to post it too. Don't want my PH buddies getting ill! :)
http://fw.ky.gov/fishadvisory.asp?lid=900&NavPath=C101

Statewide: All waters are under advisory for mercury. Women of childbearing age and children 6 years of age or younger should eat no more than one meal per week of freshwater fish. Adult men and other women are not included in the consumption notice.
