i do most of my fishing on lake murray, sc, where the state record for white cats was caught, and i catch plenty of fat healthy whites. really and truly they bite anything else a channel cat will bite, but i have found that you catch more of them on natural baits like nightcrawlers, cut bait, or minnows. i have caught many whites that we consider trophies here in sc, and the bait that works best for me is cut bait. cut up white perch makes for excellent white cat bait, and a good chunk of herring works as well. they don't fight quite as hard as a channel cat, so i like taking them on light spinning tackle.

Try to cast far and make sure to allow hook to sink. This is where most catfish dwell.

I don't know if this works for anybody else but my grandson bought a canoe just yesterday and all we were doing was troling in lake norman with a crank bait but we would stop occasionally and let the lure hit the bottem and startup again as we were doing this my grandson and i caught 3 catfish that were from a foot long to two feet long.
