In a boat? Bank fishing?

If your in a boat, you could always pull plugs with dropper weights and ALOT fo scent if not using bait.

Yeah were are in a boat... The channel is pretty deep, like 35 foot. And then there are back waters ranging 10 to 20 foot. We use mainly jigheads with livers and such.

Seconds the chicken livers. Leave them out in the sun so they stink real good. Also, ground hog works good.

yes liver is great bait for cats. After the liver use some fishbites to hold it on the hook works great:

I wanted to ask the TW world. Alot of ppl live in catfish country so I figured a few ppl would have some tricks up their sleeve. The bastards lke the nastiest shit out there so its never hard to catch them. But the big ones are sometimes hard to come by.

Ground hog... I could def see that working.

We used to use the GH to catch snapping turtles. We often ended up with as many catfish as we did turtles.

I like to chum for cats with.....live cats.
A few slices across the belly and a hook thru their spine like a shad for bass.
You can carolina or texas rig a kitty if your using a stiff enough pole.
Did I mention I hate cats?

Seriously...I would stick to what you know best. Cutbait always works. Shad, liver, blue herring. Rig it so that you have an egg sinker coming off a tri swivel about a foot off the bottom and a #? hook coming of the other tri about a foot so it's suspended.
We have MASSIVE cats cought here in South Carolina.
I have fished Cats at glendale resovior (printz Gallitzen) in clearfield co. PA with good results using this method.

I use a very similar rig also..............the bottom part of the post I mean. Never tried the top.............. I prefer a #2 treble hook. Helps to hold the liver on.

Tourney is on the Delaware River (yeah I said it) lol.

Yeah we are gonna be chumming as well. I have some nasty old livers frozen in a block for our chum. Using a chum fish is a good idea too.
