We’re running with the new pre-tied T-Turn bait rig made specifically for catfish. It comes ready to go, all you need to do is snap on a sinker. I particularly like this model as it comes with a circle hook. With a circle hook, you do not need to set the hook in the traditional manner: simple let the fish take the fish take the bait, give is a second, and then start reeling. The hook finds it’s way into the corner of the mouth naturally.

Remember, you don’t set the hook when using a circle hook!

If you want to get your own rigs, you can get them here:

For baiting the circle hook, I put the cut bait through twice, but use thinner cut bait. This allows for a larger hook gap and lets the hook set itself easier.

There’s a little bit of current in this creek, though we’re using a heavy sinker to keep us right on the bottom. Making it easier for the catfish to find the scent and take the bait.

Until next time, good luck and good fishin’!
