So I'm going to try to bait for catfish for the first time this weekend and have a few questions for you professionals.

I've read several post and articles about using range cubes and thought I would try those out. My first question is what do you put the range cubes in our do you just drop them in a spot? How long do you wait to come back and fish that spot? Is there a particular brand of cubes you like and why? What bait do you use when you come back to fish that hole? Thanks in advance!!!

he 20% range cubes will sink. Just throw out a coule of handfuls and give it 30 minutes or so. If you can do the same spot every day, that's even better.

How much Range cubes should be out out daily
To baits a hole. Also, what is the best depth range for baited holes?

Got a similar issue. I have a end slip in Lake Lewisville in a marina. Since November, I bought a 4" PVC irregation pipe with holes in which I pour 1 iced tea pitcher of range cubes every other day into. It's located on the end pf my slip at the enterance to the water. I also have some very milky soured maze I throw out whenever I'm actually trying to fish it. Again a pitcher full of maise. Am using Benny's sure shot, Danny King original, and CJ's Monster bait. I have a similar setup along the outer side of the slip where I have 2 jug lines with similar success. I have fished this morning, afternoon and earlynight with limited success though most are in the 2-3 lb range. I thought I should be consistantly catching multiple numbers by now but am only getting one here and there. Am I overfeeding or any ideas as to what's going on? Am using a rig a guide showed me for channels so that should be OK. Really stumped here.

Is there a fish cleaning station in the area?

I use about half a bag when I get there. If it's going to be several days before I get back, I pour out the rest of the bag when I leave. The more you bait a hole, the better it gets. I mainly fish Fork and only use Stubby's.

It's a Corp lake. No fish cleaning stations allowed. When you say 1/2 a bag, are you talking a 50# bag? If so, my pitchers every other day may not be enough to keep them interested.

2 to 5 lbs. a day will make them stop buy on areglar basis. how long they stay and what time
you have to find out.Might put a couple of rods out in good holders and check often s possible.

You are not trying to feed them, just excite them.
