So I’ve decided to do a catfish bait competition to compare baits. I have no clue if someone has done this or not yet but I’m going to do it. I’ve emailed multiple bait companies and Cj’s has sent me 3 tubs to compare to what else is out there. So this competition is only with prepared baits. If any of y’all know of any brands that y’all would like to see in this let me know and I’ll try to get a tub of whatever it is. I’m in the Houston area so I’m goin to hold this on lake Conroe one weekend fishing from the bank.

How about Team Catfish Secret Seven? I tried it, did not have very good luck with it. Be interested to see how it stands up to some of the others...

Well, make it interesting.

Please include Catfish Charlie, and Magic Bait (little dog logs in a bag), available at Walmart.


I'm glad there are wine drinkers in this world ..... it saves more beer for the rest of us.

You should get some of those dehydrated shad from the store that are dyed all sorts of whacked out colors. I am sure those slay.

So when are you going?

Can't wait to see the results, cause I know that ALL of the baits mentioned will catch fish, I just wonder which works best.

Please take into consideration the mess and stink involved in the judging.

Add Danny Kings to the list... I haven't tried many other prepared baits because DK's works so well I don't want to buy anything else

There are several head to head bait comparisons on YouTube, the results of which are mixed and inconclusive... But every one I've seen is done on one trip in one spot, I'm not aware of any that have tracked results over multiple days and multiple places

Hello all sorry to not replying. I’m going to use the baits on lake Conroe and in some creeks by my house. I probably will not be able to include every single bait due to the fact that I’d spend to much and be stuck with a bunch of baits haha. I have 3 tubs of punch bait cj’s donated to me for this and it’s there crawfish, shad, and wild hopper bait. I probably should have mentioned that I am trying to stick with Punch baits. I have used stubbies along time ago but I did not catch anything on it due to the fact that I found out you should chum before you use it. So I will not be chumming any areas. I am doing this fishing from the back of my aunts Lakehouse on Conroe.

You don’t HAVE to chum before using Stubby’s. It’s better to chum with any bait you use. If you didn’t catch fish with Stubby’s , there weren’t any remotely close to the area.

Stubby’s is great bait but it takes a lot more than great bait to be a great angler. Littlewheel is at the top of his game and he’d load the boat with any of the top 20 prepared baits on the market. The magic is in the angler and not the bait.
