Hello, I was wondering what are some good lures for catching catfish in rivers and ponds? I've only caught bass and would like to use my Abu Garcia Black Max baitcaster.
Nice mess of cats! We get them like that out of the Hill on cut bait, too. And I wouldn't disbelieve a catfish eating about anything.
Catfish love garlic, for sure.Take 6 dozen night-crawlers and 2 tablespoons of garlic and throw them in a blender for 30 seconds and soak chicken hearts in the concoction for 5 days in your garage refrigerator......They stay on the hook good and it puts out a ton of scent.
Thats what I used to use and it worked really well. Cut bait works good too. They are veracious feeders.....
could try some Gulp lures .
Theres a guy on YouTube that catches channel cats on Gulp minnows on ultralight .
