Summertime Kittens

There are all kinds of baits that are very popular—not to mention very effective—for catching big catfish during the sultry summer months. Although, some feel as the season wanes on, some get better than others.

For me, it's hard to beat a fresh, juicy chunk of cut bait, i.e. bluegill, chub, sucker, etc. I really think chicken livers come in second and rarely do I use any kind of stink bait. Personal preference, but I know it catches fish.

Many cat fanatics have found hotdogs, bar soap and other interesting concoctions that also produce big results. We're curious what you think is the best big-cat bait.
