In this video I show you how to bait for channel catfish. We just picked a random spot and dumped the chum. Within minutes we were catching fish. Although most of the fish were small you can see just how effective baiting a place can be. Hope y’all enjoy!

Wow great job and thanks for the video! Few questions I have, what kind of setup were you guys using? And is it possible to replicate this process from the bank?

We basically were using a short Carolina rig setup. Small weight, swivel , leader and treble hook. I prefer to use #6 treble hooks . I seem to use less bait and catch more fish with them. All those small fish would knock all the bait off a bigger hook. And yes, you can do it effectively from the bank. Just use a slip cork to keep the bait just off the bottom or if you prefer use shad or cut bait. Hope this helps.
