goin fishin at lake Barkley KY in Oct. We are running 150 foot plus nightlines and have been using either cut shad or hotdogs soaked in strawberry kool aid and garlic powder. Anyone have a good bait they use? I've heard of beef hearts cut in sugar cube size work well.

When I was a kid cat fishing was a family tradition and nearly always done at night...all night.

Back then, worms was the bait of choice Shocked

Chicken livers. Put a Tbsp or 2 of garlic powder in each little plastic container. Stir them up and leave em out in the sun for a couple days.
Wear gloves when you bait up. If you don't, you will be smelling that $hit on your hands for days. (Don't ask Embarassed )
Good luck.

Chicken livers when i was kid.

My dad would all night to moms house and get us in the morning, then we would go camping for the weekend. Usually cat fishing every other visit.
I kinda miss those nights of waiting for the bell to start ringing.

When trot line fishing at night on the bayous we use congealed beef blood when there is no current or boat traffic, we run the lines along side the steep banks. We also use plain old ivory soap.

I haven't done it for catfish but it wouldn't hurt to string a couplenor more Chem lights on the line. Light attracts fish and crabs.

Try the Chem lights, you will become a believer. I've Caught
crabs on hand lines, when I was a kid. The Chem lights draw them in like a chicken neck on steroids.
