So whats the weirdest bait you guys have ever caught a catfish on? The oddest one I've heard is peices of soap. How bout you guys?

Dog crap....no freaking joke. Heard it works in the south mostly. Certain candle waxes too. Heard one story about a scented candle wax in strawberry working for a cat in an oklahoma lake.

Eww, I'm not too sure I'd want to eat the fish that sucked that down.

I caught a nice cat, probably 3-4 lbs, at San Pablo Reservoir. I was casting a panther martin off a boat trying to catch a trout. I thought it was pretty weird to catch a cat on a Panther Martin. As far as dog crap goes, I wouldn't eat a fish that sucked that down either. And I sure wouldn't want to be the guy that baits the hook.

DIDO, I wouldn't want to eat the fish or bait the hook myself but it would be easy to find bait and cheap too. JIM D.

Dog crap huh, LOL, I how are they rigging it up, forget it I dont want to know. Catfish taste good but I have a problem with bottom dwellers.

Well cats taste good to me, although sometimes I don't wanna know what they've been munchin on, on the bottom.

how would you rig dog crap??? *do you dry it first? *
that's pretty nasty.

OK, my guess is that you would rig it like Power Bait. Take a small hook size piece and roll it in your hands until you have a nice, tight little ball and then put it on your hook. Just don't forget to wash your hands before you start munching on your chips. Try toothpaste, I heard it works good.

My cousins in Illinois use Ivory soap on trot lines.
I have friends that have caught them on nymphs fly fishing. I caught one on a deep diving Repala once.

WD40 on anything even a sponge! I wont use it much since it is super bad for the water but try it in your hole and I'll be surprised if it hits the bottom.

Tm Customs, yeah the WD40 was a very good kept secret until a few years back.

However the study done about WD40 being a contaminate I could not trust.

Your talking about a small amount of WD on a piece of bait. You have motor on some boat that will polute more in a mile of drive time than a boat of 2 or 3 guys using it all day long can.

DFG will site a person if seen using WD instead of a Fish attractant.

2 words....bacon and grease....they love the stuff...cant get enough on a liver when the blood dies off

Wolf74
07-24-2005, 01:19 PM
how exactly do you lay that grease on there?

fishrman4life
07-24-2005, 01:36 PM
u dip the liver in the bacon grease...the grease stays at a liquid state when let warm to outdoor temps....the scent trail the stuff gives off....cant beat it

in the winter time when the water gets cold...when the liver hits the water...the grease cools to a semi solid state...thats what catches cats in the winter for me at Mather

give it a shot

Maybe dog crap and WD40. Does the dog crap have to be warm or cold?

Ok I'm a little late responding to this, but dog crap. Did someone really say dog crap? Wait that reminds me I should go clean my yard. Anyone need bait?

08-01-2005, 11:28 PM
I am DEADLY serious, i saw it in a fishing book that people would use feces as catfish bait if nothing else worked. that is, as far as i know, the weirdest bait to ever catch a cat

Guys at Amador clean their fish on the blue docks and then use the entrails as bait on the bottom for cats during the spring. Even better, using the roe! :)

LOL it reminds me of my time in Vietnam.

Warning: it's pretty gross.

So my uncle's house is along the Mekong Delta and there's a body of water running across his house. He dung a little pathway for the river to make a small pond, which is the latrine.

Latrine is only two sticks suspending over the water with some grass walls to have privacy.

Well one time I took a dump in said latrine and as I watch my dookie fall down, I see a fish swim up and eat it as said dookie sinks down. I thought that was gross but interesting at the same time.

That same week my uncles rigged a net and caught a fish and we ate it.

Might sound really unappealing and even demote human lifeform in Vietnam a couple notches, but it was actually okay eating. No poopy flavor to the fish and I guess when you live in the countryside, anything works.

I was in vietnam in 67,68 and69, seen people take catfish and stuff full of herb & spices and roll in ashes and mud to build up a coating on them and put it on an open fire and bake it. Then when you break away the clay like shell you had some very good eating catfish meat. JIM D.

heehheehheee...if the catfish consumes the dog matter, and then relieves itself...is it still dog crap, or has it become cat(fish) crap?

Remember helping my grandpa w/ his trotlines,we used soap(some cheap generic cake stuff).Worked great, he was a commercial fisherman.Also,fished w/ an uncle that used sponges and the most god awful bloodbait in the world.It would gag a maggot! ArkyKen (fishing is sure different here in Calif--- no limb lines,jugs,trotlines or yoyo's allowed) Not complaining mind you,would not be living here if it wasn't such a nice place.

I brought out some links and some carne Asada that had calantro, onions and lemon marinating in the bag. Ate em with warmed up corn tortillas. Well, I told the boys, I am gonna put a hunk of that asada on the hook. 10 min later, a 5+ lb. Channel.
