I love fishing for catfish! I fish Santee Cooper in South Carolina a good bit.

My favorites baits are as follows:

For Channel cats I prefer to use my homemade concoctions or Magic Baits night crawler flavor.

For Blues I like cut bait- gizzard shad, threadfin shad and eel. Cut into small to good size chunks depending on your quarry. You can also slice the sides to give more scent.

For Flatheads I only use live baits, I prefer large live baits when I can get them. Check your state regs to make sure what is legal in your state.

Large flatheads will eat other fish up to 10 pounds. So if you think your bait is to big, think again. The Best baits are always indigenous to the waters you are fishing. Gizzard shad, theadfin shad, yellow perch, bream, crappie, catfish, white perch, suckers, and eels all make great flathead baits.
