For 3 nightsbthis weekend I fished hard for cats. Used everything from night callers to Shad to minnows. Fished Berlin for 2 nights and tried about 5 good spots and got nothing, not even a bight. I thought they might be spawning so we went to Atwood last night and the same thing happened. I'm pretty new to catfishing so I need some advice from someone. Thank you.

Chubs, Shrimp, Cut shad, Cut gill. They have got me over 60 channels this year. No big ones, most between 18-25 inches.

What I use depends on availability
1. Shad if I can net them
2. Chubs when the creeks are blown out and I have time
3. Gills if I have time
4. If I don't have time.

Definitely try shrimp and stick with the cut bait. I'm not familiar with those lakes but you might want to try different spots. If the spots you are not getting anything at is deep, then switch to a shallower spot and visa versa. If using shad then it's probably more location than bait that's the problem.

if you want flats at berliner, throw out some live bluegill...for channels the best bait is cut shad, then chicken livers imo....get a cast net, learn to throw said cast net, and then you have unlimited supply....be sure to always have livers as sometimes shad are hard to find

isn't it illegal to use game fish (bluegill/sunfish) as bait caught from a cast net?
