|Dee||I just learned to use a cast net. Shad are free, and cats like shad.|

|D Fischer||Really hard to find any more but cow liver is way better than chicken liver. Use cow liver and it doesn't cast off the hook and no surgical tube needed. With chicken liver I use hooks with an egg loop tied on them Hook the liver and run the egg loop around the liver. I can cast so so like that but at least far enough to get out on the water! If you need to cast to the middle of the lake, I doubt it will work! Have made up some chicken breast but haven't used any yet. Every time I get ready to I see a new formula for making it and start over. This time it includes olive oil and strawberry kool aide. No strawberry kool aid so gonna try cherry! Funny thing my son swear's by night crawler's! Unfortunately they also seem to work well for him so I have to listen to him talk about the things heck, anyone can hook on a night crawler!|

I'm sure that'll stink.

|prairiedog555||I have had some luck using cheap hot dogs that are soaked for awhile in that liquid crawfish spray you can buy. Don't soak them more that an couple of hours or they will become too soft|

Well. I guess I'll give a fishing report.
My back was hurting bad enough that I didn't want to face the climb back up to my truck, so instead of high falls, we went back to the water dept lake, where I got one bite on nightcrawlers.
The rod bowed over and stayed, but even with a circle hook, it let go so I'm thinking big turtle.
I'm not going again until my back gets some rest.
So nothing exciting.

I have two heavy duty spinners and medium heavy rods for them, and if she learns to cast one of those, we'll go for bigger fish.
High falls has some big catfish very close to where we'll be fishing, and the eating size I'm after hang on the outskirts of the deep cover above the dam.
It's a large log jam right against the base of the dam.
My wife loves catfish so I'm really hoping she gets into it.

|casull||Bugeye, all you need to do is catch one or two bluegills on the worms and you'll have one of the best baits ever for catfish. Cut them bluegills up into 5 or 6 pieces and you'll catch cats, and bigger ones than you would on livers. Plus, it's a lot cleaner than dealing with livers.|

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.
