CAtfish Bait

I am about to set some slat traps and possible hoop net or two and was wondering what the best bait was to put in them. I will be setting them on the Tickfaw River. I have known poeple to use the cheese bait with some success but I don't know where to get it in the Springfield area. Thanks!

Try some pogey. Just throw it in the net and leave it a few days..

I am using a mix of the compressed cheese blocks, soybean chips and cattle sweet feed. Works well. Look at your local feed store and ask for cattle range cubes. These contain cotton seed meal and usually are preety cheap. You could also use cheap dog/cat food

You can also order it online from The Fishnet Company in Jonesville, LA or take a ride down to Pierre Part and buy the cheese (by the bucket), compressed cheese and soybean chips from Duffy's Shell Station. If you go there, bring all the propane tanks you can find as it is only $14 to fill them there.
