The second time I got the call to go to the Mississippi River flathead trip with a group of serious flathead guys and I am stuck working , Well at least me and Wyatt got to go help catch some of the bait for the trip .
Thanks Alexander Taxidermy ( Trenton Tx )

Very cool!

I watched the video and wondered what the orange blobs in the net were.

Oranges! Wow, who would have thought?

Man, I envy guys that actually have a Spring season for catfishing, as well as current. I think our Spring season this year was about a week and a half long.

The orange DID work stoneman, I appreciate the tip-
It last longer than my previous baits like a weiner or other meat based baits-
