I have caught catfish on hot dogs, shrimp, crawdads, doughballs, nightcrawlers and corn. But what i find as the best bait is sunfish. Around the englewood damn and all over the stillwater i have caught monster blue and channel catfish. I use a small split shot and cast the sunfish into the current and let it bump and swim around. I also catch big smallmouth with the occasional largemouth. What do you think is the best bait? And how do you fish it?
