I really like to fry up them small ones around the camp.

I'd love some 2-5's and some flatheads 10-20lb's for my Hungarian catfish stew that I've been craving. And best if combined with hybrids / stripers.

Dang I'm hungry now!

Out of 46 cat, I might of had 3 that went over a pound, 1 that was over 2#.
We fish with bream poles & wigglers. Ole Pin-seeker was gonna go with me
sometime but I don't know where he got off to.http://i1182.photobucket.com/albums/x450/donald811/solo_trip-9-11_001.jpg

Former girlfriends mother has a place on Eufaula near cool branch. Everytime it rained hard, the cove nearby would be full of cats that size. They would attack almost anything you threw out there. I didn't have any other bait but bacon one time and it worked just fine. Fish battered up and fried on the bank, along with some fried taters can't be beat IMHO.

Floating catfish pellets.... There's an automatic feeder that dispenses feed every day at 5 and the fish know when it's time to eat.. They're sitting there waiting for the feeder to go off and when it does the water erupts with hungry channel cats, bream and grass carp. I haven't fished much in the pond in years and the cats and bream have gotten too big and plentiful... they need to be thinned out a little to give the bass and smaller fish a chance at the food.
