Okay guys my little man is dying to get a catfish and momma is failing miserably. We used magicbait (friend recommended) tonight and got no bites! Y’all have any suggestions on what to use or any tips and tricks? Thanks guys!!!

Stubby's cheese bait is great for channel cats. You can get it from Stubby's, he's on the forum as Stubby77

What is magic bait?

I am FAR from an expert but if channel cat fishing I would stay away from store bought stuff. Shad chunks (fresh) would be great. Then if I could not get those maybe some night crawlers. Fish like those a lot. These guys swear by stubbys it might be worth a shot. I never had much faith in those dip or punch baits but people love them. They must work.

Good luck.

Trust in your bait means a lot. Point of order, Stubby’s is a cheese bait.

It’s a doughy type bait. Friend swore that as soon as it hit the water it would get hit....maybe I did it wrong who knows! I honestly think as soon as it hit the water it just disintegrated. Had better luck with just the ol worm or chicken liver! Ha

Grasshoppers are abundant now and can even be presented like a top water fly. Garlic shrimp always works for me.

Until Stubby's bait is delivered, try some raw chicken breast. Quarter sized piece.

Back in the day I would fish where the Ferguson power plant discharged in to the lake. Any catfish bait would catch you channels all day. Go pick up some large minnows and catch a variety of fish.

Another idea, take him with some worms and a bucket and catch a bunch of perch. Take those perch and use them as cut bait.
