Anyone tried the Bear River for catfish lately? Im planning on taking the wife for a date night, night fishing trip next weekend and am wondering if anyone has had success this spring yet. Chicken livers on the bottom has always been the ticket for me in the past.

I was at Benson marina a week ago; we caught a lot of bull heads but that's all. Worms on the bottom was the only thing they were hitting. Though we didn't have any liver.

Try some shrimp, the channel cats love them.
Critter, ive heard good things about shrimp. What kind of shrimp do you use? Seems like a pricey fish bait. I can get a container of chicken liver for .80 which is why I always stick with that.

Just purchase the cheapest shrimp that you can find. Or when they go on sale just get a couple of pounds and put them in the freezer. When used for fish bait they never go bad.

I use shrimp and it's the best. I will never mess with liver again. The shrimp stays on the hook much better and much cleaner on your hands. Don't use the cheap bait shrimp though. Just falls apart
