i use just regular fishing worms without a bobber and drag it along the catfish bed and that is were you usually find them

a good way to catch them if you can is cut the grass by the lake so it goes into the lake it will attract them and they will be aggressive

I use pop-ups (floating boilies)on a hair rig. I usualy use braided line also to give it a more natural flow.

i use hamburger and hotdog buns wrapped around a treble hook and let it float on top of the water, but you could also use a regular snelled hook also.

Mix cottonseed meal (get it at feed store) flour and water into a ball and the carp will eat it all day long.
