Default how to keep crawdads off my bait and keep it in catfish?

I'v been fishin a small lake south of pueblo for years with good success for channel cats. Now I have trouble keepin the crawdads off my bait. I use nightcrawlers and chicken livers, lately I have been airing up my crawlers and hooking a small bobber on my livers which has been helping, but now my success on fish has plumeted. I'm curious do I need to use crawdads now or is there a way to keep the bugers of my bait

Rub some Longhorn mint(blue can) smokeless tobacco on your bait. Crawdads hate it...kitties love it. 9 out of 10 choosey bucketmoufs also prefer the Longhorn. It's like science.

Leave 'em. Big cats will take the bait (cutbait) and the 4 craws eating on it. You will have to re-bait a little more and get more false nibbles.
