Hi!
What are your favourite catfish lures? I know, that your catfish is a bit different, but maybe we use similar lures.
The best for European catfish are not big crankbaits like

  • Salmo Boxer
  • Manns Baby
  • Rapala DT
  • Storm wiggle Wart / Sub Wart
  • And a LEGEND - old lure fem 1970s - Shakespeare Big S
  • Rapala Shad Rap

What about your expierience?

Interesting. I have never intinally fished for catfish using crankbaits but the biggest catfish I have evr caught was a 50lb yellowcat caught on a rattle trap. I have caught several on crankbaits over the years and even caught one downrigging Sat. on a sassy shad.

Most here use either live or cut bait, and some use manufactured punch bait or dip baits. And still others will use worms, chicken liver and many other things like hotdogs and such.I do not know of any that use lures for catfish.

Wow! It's very intresting. In Poland people use the same lures (liver, worms, live and dead fishes, etc.), but there is a second group that uses ONLY spinning lures. Big jigs, crankbaits. I think you should try!

I've caught some nice flatties on the trinity using crankbaits while the water was flowing. There are some boys up north that troll with D22's and they catch some really big cats

I use a shrimp net at night and drag real close to the bottom.

The channel and blue cats that are common in Texas do not tend of to hit artificial lures. Most of the lakes, rivers, and ponds are not clear enough to make such lures effective. I have caught a flathead on a tailspinner lure called a humdinger.

Fresh cut gizzard or whole threadfin shad on a santee cooper rig is the best for blue catfish while punch bait is a good choice for channel catfish.
