Catfish bait is the foundation of success for catfishing. You need to put the right catfish baits in front of the right species of catfish using the right presentation to have the most success.

I find that many anglers don’t really understand catfish baits and they make things way too complicated looking for magic potions and secret catfish bait recipes that are the “next big thing” and the truth is, there is no such thing and choosing the best catfish bait is very simple.

I’ll cover the best catfish baits for blue catfish, channel catfish and flathead catfish covering the five catfish baits that I use year in and year out as a professional catfish guide and they’ve been working for me for over twenty years!
