I kicked everyone out of the pool just long enough to get some swim time in.
7" baby channel cat
YouTube - 7" baby channel cat
14" bohemith monster trout
YouTube - 14 inch Trout
if you wanna see pics of the baits, you can find them in the gallery.

I will most definitely be selling the catfish bait once I have the ability to make copy's.
The trout bait, I might consider making one or two if I have time.

For me, the cat is the cats wiskers. The action is just right, just what I would be looking for.

After catching many smallmouth with a forked tail sticking out of their throats
I figured I needed A baby channel cat bait, but I soon discovered that largemouths were the real catfish eaters. About 75% of the bass i catch come on my catfish baits. So I expect to catch bass, but I would bet money they would work on musky's too.

i doubt that is a catfish in that smallies mouth
but that is really interesting. i didnt know that bass ate catfish!
that swimbait swims just like a cat too nice job.

Looks like a shad tail to me.........but I can't see anything in front of that fin.
Both of those are great.

I think that both lures do not swim great, or awsome, or nice.
They swim just perfect.

Channel cats. Hmmm. I've caught them while bass fishing, but never thought about using them to catch bass. Great idea.

Heres a few recent bass from the local ponds, all caught on one of my top water cat-baits
It's likely I could have caught these bass on something other than a catfish clone, but I guess I'll never know since I hardly use anything else.

WHOA THOSE ARE TOADS!!!!!
i agree, its probably the action that evokes the strike, not the fact that it looks like a catfish
those are great fish man, keep it up!
did you weigh any of them? that last one looks huge.
Posted 12 August 2008 - 11:46 AM
That one was just over 5#, the largest I've ever caught out of those ponds (San Diego River) was 9#, but 2# to 3# is usually the norm
Posted 12 August 2008 - 01:28 PM
much bigger than the average bass i catch
i meant to ask you, how much does the catfish weigh and how much does that monster trout weigh?
