Re: Which bait for catfish?
I use a size 2 baitholder hook and I just basically texas rig a 1" chunk of the hot dog. If I'm fishing a lake or pond I'll only use 1 small split-shot or sometimes no weight at all. In a river I use a no-roll sinker and a 1ft leader. Soon as they start running I let them load up the rod a bit then set the hook hard. Gets them every time.
Women want me. Fish fear me.
