I am a catfish fanatic and will try anything. I have used everything there is except for one thing. Soap. Never caught crap on liver just stinkbaits and worms and had bites on cuttbait. I found several sites selling this catfish soap made from animal fats(lye) and am thinking about trying them. Has anyone used soap baits before?

so after you catch the fish can you use this soap to wash up? that would be cool dual purpose!

I tried the Berkely Blood and the cheese bait and never even gotten a hit. That stuff doesn't work like powerbait IMO.

I use either crawlers or crawdads. If you can get some small crawdads about an inch or inch and half and use the whole thing they work pretty well. put the hook in starting from the back of the tail.

the guy mike i met at harriman does that, he says he hauls in the big ones that way, i tried that last night but no luck, it was a little bigger than an inch but had just molted so the body was soft.

I used to fish for cats with shrimp quite a bit...now i tend to throw liver more often here in colorado, but i still fish shrimp a lot...its not as messy and ive still caught some decent cats on it. sometimes it seems they want one bait more than another...so i tend to fish both if i am using two rods. peel them, and try to cover most of a circle hook with it...but leave a timy bit of the hook point exposed. also raw is best, if they get a bit ripe over time its ok...they still work
