What should you be throwing at the cats right now? CatDaddy says he has been having a lot of success with a good stinky cheese dip bait. For the best performance, CatDaddy likes to visit a western wear store and pick up hat block sponges. He then cuts those sponges into one inch blocks and runs a treble hook up through the center. He then dips those sponges into the bait and gets after it. Because the sponges hold scent so well, he says after a few uses you don't even have to bait them in order to catch a fish. The hat block sponges are also nice and soft, he says, so the cats have no problem sucking them right up. In this heat, when those baits hit the water they immediately disperse an oil slick that drives the fish crazy and they just can't get enough of it. Just as long as the water temperature is fairly warm, dip baits and punch baits will work well anywhere it is you are fishing in the country. Nice sized 15 to 18 pound channel cats have been ripping drag, bending poles and finding their way onto CatDaddy's hook with this concoction. He notes that in order to beat the heat the earlier you get out the better - get on the water by day break and fish until noon and call it a day. You'll get all the action you want without being chased off by the afternoon heat. Listen in!
