How many of you ever used a bait called punch bait? I have been using this for the last 2 years and been killen the cats with it. I use a #4 or #6 treble hook and rig my line with a slip sinker. I fish about 100 days throughout the summer and I normally use 2 gallon buckets. I have used more in the past but thats why I downsized my hooks a little. Just take a stick and push your bait down in the stuff and pull it out at a slight angle. Here is where I get mine from www.catfishbait.net I buy mine 5 gallons at a time because my friends usually get some off of me too. If you call him tell him CountryKat sent you, he might give you a little break on the price. His name is Benny and he is a super nice guy.
