Been using catalpa worms on my yo-yos and need something a little better. Catfish start spawning soon on Hamilton and I need something that'll WORK!!! PM me if you don't want it spread around.

Shinners work great in cool weather. All types of worms work great ,even more so in high water. Turkey or Chicken Liver , prepared dough baits, Shad ,and lots of things as Channel cats are not finicky most of the time.
You say Catfish spawning soon ?:confused: Most places it's months away.:wink:
We use fresh Catalpa Worms or Chicken guts over our baited holes after the spawn and wear them out. The frozen Catalpa Worms don't work 1/2 as good as live ones.:thumb:

I was gonna say, regular minnows will catch some cats for us. However, trotlining stinkbait works the best. I would say that you can bait treble hooks on the end of a yoyo (instead of the traditional hook), put some stink bait on it, and catch some cats.
