Not on the fly but i did some cat fishing on the perk and was able to land 2 big ~22-25inch cats in about an hour. They both hit a nightcrawlers. What i find odd is, i bought this $5 bag of "Cat Shad" bait. They said guaranteed to catch cats, specially formulated etc. The stuff stunk to high heaven and what i found odd is i got no hits on it. Any thoughts?

My thought:

Go and get your money back! They said it was guaranteed to produce and it didn't. End of story.

There are no shad in the perk. I'd bet that would work in blue marsh, or on the tully spillway. Cats aren't picky, but they know what they are looking for when they go out on the prowl.

Even so, go get your money back. I spent $5 on some stupid fake "power livers" last weekend with the same results. You can't beat dead minnows or nightcrawlers for catties.

Given that I live in the city, I do a hell of a lot of "slummin' it" with nightcrawlers and spinning gear.

Mute Flatheads mainly hit on live bait that stink stuff is mainly for muddy water and works on channels and blue cats down south

we used to use chunks of hot dogs...saw a show one time where they tied them to 8 feet of mono below a 2 liter bottle and tossed them overboard...then when the bottles would start to bob in the water they would take the boat and round them up as they bobbed...looked fun...they had about ten bottles drifting at a time...not sure it would be legal here but it looked fun on the mississippi...

Aren't there channels or blues in the perk? Channels are 95% of what I catch in the schuylkill.

I heard that called "jugging" and the term "trot line" was used often with this technique. I never heard it was illegal, but there may be a limit on the number of jugs allowed.

I got a rather large cattie today while carp fishing at the east falls bridge in Philly. I was throwing corn for carp. There goes my theories about em being the least bit discerning. I estimated him at about 6 pounds. My nicest yet above the Mason-Dixon.

I think a trotline is a long rope with baited hooks every few feet that are left out overnight. Great if you are supplying for a restaurant, but sounds about as fun as gill netting. Jugging on the other hand is fun, although I've only ever done it for snapping turtles.

My grandfather said that trotlining was actually fun. When a large fish was hooked, they usually had to physically wrestle it into the boat. I guess the waiting is the hardest part.

I like to use a mouse or cheese for cat fishing.

How do you preserve the mice, and do you hook them through the lips or the tail?
