i've used quite a few different baits for catfish.
when i used to trotline often, i used beef blood
made from the buckets of blood you used to
could buy at the slaughterhouses. it really
doesn't work very good for rod and reel fishing
because it's fairly fragile.
the last few decades i've pretty much used shad
exclusively. you can stop by one of these larger
lakes around here and if you know when a school
will be passing by, you can fill up a cooler full in
2 or 3 casts.
if i'm fishing right away i'll use them because they're
definitely better fresh. if not i'll pack freezer bags
full and freeze them for later.
the price is right for sure.

The United States doesn't have a gun control problem.
We have a people control problem.

Honor the Texas flag;I pledge allegiance to thee, Texas,
one state under God, one and indivisible.

At walmart prices, I could get 4000 33max reels.
I doubt if I could handle that many lines out.
I don't need $1000 worth of anything to go fishin, and I don't need any guns, or clothes, or anything else that I can think.
Hmmm, I'll bet she knew all that and that's why she offered so much.
She knew I wouldn't spend it.

Your a simple and content man Bugeye! I am much the same! I got enough guns to kill everything that I need to kill and the ammo to keep me shooting them in a conservative manner all of my days. So as long as chickens keep laying eggs, they keep making peanut butter and nobody poisons the Coca-Cola factory I'm in fabulous shape. Mother nature and I have the meat thing all worked out too!

One of my favorite movie scenes is from the movie "My Name is Nobody" Where he puts the bug on the water and waits with a club hoisted for a big ole catfish to try to eat that bug! Catfish even stung him! I wish I had a nickel for every time that a catfish or bullhead stung me....why I'd be right wealthy!

Good luck at the catfish hole!

Well momma kept insisting I spend a lot of money, so, I did some checking on a guided fishing trip and I ain't gonna pay $100 per hour plus tip for someone to take my fish off the hook.
So this afternoon I went to walmart and bought two Berkeley 7ft graphite casting rods (for my two spincast reels) and a bunch of hooks, lines, and sinkers.

I'm going to home depot in a day or two and get the wood and metal braces to build a stake-body for my little red wagon so I can haul more stuff down to the water.

So I'm happy with my birthday stuff, Jesus rose from the dead, what more could we want.

Yes, Bugeye, our names are written in the Lamb's book of life.

Come quickly, Lord Jesus

We did go to a water department lake where we didn't get a bite on strawberry hot dogs or chicken livers and rain ran us off early.
So, this coming Saturday (5-18-19) we are heading for High Falls lake.
It's supposed to be 89 degrees but we'll have a nice shady spot where I've caught a lot of fish in the past, both catfish and bluegills.
AND, THE ONLY BAIT WE'LL HAVE IS NIGHT CRAWLERS.
They'll catch anything.
