I went to the IGFA (fishing hall of fame) during a family event. They let kids fish in their stocked pond with live red worms. I chose to use bread suspended under a float near grass and I caught a huge five pound, record breaker oscar. I asked the guy holding the event if it counts, but he said no because the pond was a private, non natural pond.

Yeah! Why not put a bunch of fish in a barrel..and shoot em? You can waggle your finger in the water and get a bite off an oscar. It might feel better to fish for species that people don't keep as pets...like bass or something from salt water.

Use a 1 inch chunk of a panfish. Me and my friends did and we got alot of 8 incers.

The best tip i can give anyone to catch an oscar is to sightfish along the edge. This works flawless. When you see an oscar along the edge of the water just keep a hook on your line. (no bait) Then throw the hook at the fish and tease it up and down. The oscar is sure to bite it to defend their territory. This is the best way to catch oscar's guaranteed.

I catch em and put em in my aquarium, use little chunks of work on top with a small split shot, if your near a dock it works even better!

Small hook, split shot and cutbait tossed where you can't see the bottom.
