Give them Cats Some Dough........
There's all types of bait to use for Catfish, but a homemade concoction of dough balls might be something to think about experimenting with.

Secret ingredients are limitless. Make up a variety of flavors using rotted fish, sardines, limburger cheese, pureed shrimp, honey, molasses and more.
