Question about bait - using mult. goldfish?

Discussion in 'Catfish Discussion' started by dmbfanatpsu, May 19, 2005.

  1. I plan on fishing tomarrow night at the Ohio River, but I don't have time to make it to the bait shop before I go. What I was thinking of doing for bait is going to Meijer and buying some those feeder fish. Since these fish are normally smaller then the goldfish I would get at the bait shop, I was thinking of maybe hooking 2 or 3 up on the same hook. Anyone ever try this? or am I thinking crazy?
  2. ummmmm????? huh? I am going to use circle hooks...and what do you have plenty of? Lost me on that one. :confused:

    It might work dmb, give it a shot and let us know how it goes.

    Bobberfisher is coming across as being a general poopoo head, so he confuses all of us very easily.
  4. O.K. Will do. Maybe I'll catch a :B

    IS there a petstore like Petsmart, Jack, etc... in your area? You can usually get large Feeder goldfish for $3 a dozen or so.

    dmbfanatpsu, I use to have a pet flathead that LOVED to eat the 25 cent feeders from Pet Smart... they are pretty good size.. probably the same ones mellon is talking about 12 for 3 :)
  13. Update: Didn't catch anything or even get a bite. Fished from about 9PM to 1AM from where the Licking River meets the Ohio. :(

    That's a tough spot, I've fished it too. Got the same results you did, I've heard White Castle French fries are best down there *LOL*
    Also heard a whole bunch of fish stories there too. I guess it's like anywhere on the river, sometimes it's hot, sometimes it's not. ;)
