I'm thinking of heading out to the delta tomorrow night for some catfish. I will be fishing off of bethel island on shore.
Can anyone give me any tips. I never fished the delta for catfish. I'm usually a die hard bass fisherman. But deciding to change it up a lil.
Thanks in advance

keep it on the bottom, use fresh bait

I always like to use mackerel for bait, it stay’s on the hook well, and I filet it in bait size pieces put it in a small container and add some pro cure anise to it

in the morning...use wax worms, i guaranteed ya Mr Whiskers. later on you can switch off to sardines, mackerel, livers etc...bottom or 3 way swivel with the weight longer than your leader so its just above the bottom will work just as fine, they'll hit at any depth...they can smell the bait from LONG distance thats why the hit is so fast...GOOD LUCK
