The Best Bait For Catfishing

Aug 15, 2008
Many anglers will tell you this is what they use and catch the big cats, and others will tell you that they use this to catch the big cats. The story is true. Everyone has a different way to catch a fish. The thing is that the bait is the one ingredient you need to catch a big catfish. It is not necessarily the best bait for catfish fishing you need to know, but the bait that work the best for you. Once you know some of the top rated baits that are used will help you select and use one or all of the baits.

The first bait that you might try for catfish fishing is stinky bait. There are many different stinky types of bait that you can try. The first one that comes to mind is the chicken livers. You will need a package of chicken livers. Place the first layer in a pan, add garlic salt. Then add the second layer and garlic salt. Do this until the chicken livers are all layer and salted in the pan. You then cover the pan with a cover or tin foil being careful not to let the lid touch the chicken livers. Put the covered pan outside for three hours.

After three hours, drop the chicken livers into a bucket. Add the remaining garlic salt while stirring the livers. Save about a quarter of the garlic salt for when you uncover the creation. Cover the bucket and place outside in a storage area for ten days. Ten days, you are ready to go catfish fishing. Pour the rest of the garlic into the bucket and stir. Now you can head out with your tough chicken livers for some great catfish fishing. This is the easiest catfish bait to make and use.

The next bait on the top of the list is fish heads. This is as simple as it sounds. You can use fish heads from a market or from fish that you have caught before. The biggest catfish that was caught a while back was caught with a fish head. The catfish attract to the smell. The keen sense of smell allows the cats to smell and find something smelly such as a dead fish or fish head. This would probably account for less dead fish in lakes that have catfish. They can keep the waters clean and free of dead fish.

Then there are the anglers that use an Ivory soap mixture for baiting the catfish. This is a strange recipe, but it has been proven to work. It is relatively inexpensive and the cats like it. You need four bars of Ivory soap, 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup water. Put the water into a pan, add the sugar, and dissolve. Add the shavings of the Ivory soap to the water mixture. Keep the heat low as not to boil over. Once the soap is melted, pour it out onto a piece of paper and while it is still warm, flatten it down to about a half an inch thick.
