I have always had very good luck with cut bait. Usually shad, or sunfish. Check your state's DNR for rules first before using sunfish.

I can see why you were feeding it to the catfish if it stayed on your hook! :eyebrows:

I haven't fished for bullheads/catfish in a good many years. Have caught them on nightwalkers, liver, leeches, crayfish, cut bait, etc. We didn't have blues or flatheads where I am originally from. Best fishing seemed to be at night, although one time we had a very successful trip to upper NY State with mostly bullheads biting throughout the day. Very tasty later. May have to see where I can catch a few locally for another meal. Been a long time since I've eaten any. Thanks for posting. Now I have something else to persue. :)

OK. Caught my first cat on a rod and was wondering how much silt in the water can cat handle?

Catfish can handle really dirty water and low oxygen levels, way worst than most other fish can deal with.
