And to think all these years I've been trying to catch them with worms and chicken liver. Who knew.
I've got channel cat in my lake that have eaten gooslings before. You see them swimming along behind mama, and then all of a sudden they're gone.
I was always under the impression that Catfish were bottom feeders.
Channel cats are every bit as aggressive as bass when they're on the prowl; I've caught more of them on live minnows when I was bass fishing than I have anything else, & like Mojo, I've caught more than a few on a crankbait as well. The thing about cats is that they have one heck of a plan B (they're basically a swimming nose/tongue w/ fins when it comes to detecting scent) when they can't find something live.
Them cajun boys down in the swamp set out their lines trying to catch alligator gar and wind up catching more catfish than anything.
That's tight butthole.
Pigeons are loose butthole
One Spring me and my brother were fishing under a bridge, not really catching anything. A baby bird fell out of it's nest and was floppin around on the surface. My brother and me were watching that baby bird flutter around in the water when a big cat came up and hit that baby bird like a great white does seals. I was like damn we need to catch us some baby birds and use them as bait! Thought about designing my own baby bird lure.
