Home Made Baits For Catfishing

When it comes to catching catfish the best time of the year to make this happen is summer. When you decide you are going cat fishing you want to make sure you have everything in place to make it happen in your favor. It is very important that you know at least some of the minor things needed to succeed. If you go for catfish with bait that isnt very good you will end up being dissapointed in most cases.

The biggest thing is making sure you have something that the catfish will want. With little effort this shouldnt be much of a problem because in most cases just about everything you need will be found in your fridge at home. Having everything also helps to off set any costs that may be involved.

Below I will try and provide a few simple tips on how to prepare catfish baits that are going to work for you.

The thing with catfish is they arent very fussy and will eat pretty much anything. Anything includes dead and rotting animals and insects. When it comes right down to it you can probably close your eyes and pick something out of your fridge and it will probably work. Many fridges have leftovers that arent even good to eat anymore. Instead of throwing then out feel free to use them on your next catfish outing.

In fact as funny as it may seem experts in catfishing quite regularily use hot dogs as a catfish bait. The thing is if you want to make what is a good bait into a bait that almost know catfish can resist you will want to mix cheese with it. So what you want to do is melt cheese and then mash the hotdogs and cheese together. Now all you need to do is let the mush cool and it will be ready to use.

Now you are going to want to get out your dip baits and fill them up with the mush you made from the hotdogs and cheese. Once you do this they are ready to use. The time to start fishing is now here. You will find your spot by casting the line to where you think is best. Once you are where you want to be and the hook is where you want it to be it will start spreading a scent that will get the catfish going a little crazy. Normally we would be talking stink but in the case of hotdogs and cheese the smell is actually quite good. What is even better is the smell should keep you catching fish for many hours to come.

The next great bait are something catfish actually love. Believe it or not cut the catfish love marshmallows. All you have to do is put a couple on rigs and cast them out until the cats come and get them. Now you may laugh at this but a good way to use marshmallows is to actually treat them like camp fire marshmallows and melt them a little bit.

If you do decide to use melted marshmallows there actually is a method to using them. You want to use bait traps and dip them in the melted marshmallow. Once they cool down they will get sticky. Once they are cooled and sticky they are ready to start catching fish that you will be able to put in the frying pan and eat.

The next incredible bait that we do not want to ignore when going after catfish is garlic. Garlic and catfish go together like peanut butter and jelly. For many years many fisher people have expressed that garlic is possibly the best bait that we can use for catfish. It really is simple to use garlic. The easiest way is to add crushed carlic to the hotdogs we mashed earlier. You will quickly find out that you cant go wrong using garlic.

When it comes to the right bait for catching a fish or better yet for catching a catfish you have so many different options. Pretty much anything in your fridge can be mixed together to form something the fish will love. Who knows you may even be lucky enough to come up with a secret ingredient that will make you the stud fisher person on the block. It is important to pay attention to what you mix in your bait. You need this just in case you do hit the mother load and you need to mix another batch. Also remember to add a bit of flour to keep the baits nice and thick. The key is to keep on fishing so you can continue to create your own secrets.
