Bait Fishing in the California aqueduct
Chicken Livers produce catfish and lots of them. With their strong, meaty smell, chicken livers draw cats from broad areas. Once the catfish find the bait, they have a very hard time resisting the smell and taste of chicken liver. Chicken Livers are an excellent way to catch catfish.
The easiest way to catch fish is with nightcrawlers. Nightcrawlers work wonders on bass and catfish. Nightcrawlers are a great bait to fish with because they wiggle around on the hook and can survive underwater for long periods of time attracting bass and catfish with the constant movement.
Another great bait to fish with is sardines. Sardines are a streamlined fish usually small in size and have high fish oil content. Sardines are a great way to attract large predatory fish. Sardines work extremely well as the primary bait on a hook or along with an artificial lure, providing additional scent to attract a strike
Another great bait is Anchovies. Anchovies are a strong-smelling, oily baitfish that quickly releases their scent in the water to attract larger prey. This makes the small, salty fish an excellent choice in bait for striped bass and river catfish, which feed off the bottom and need a strong scent to follow
shrimp is another great catfish bait dead or alive,shrimp is native to our waters they are kept in fresh cold water.
