    Use a worm lure, can only get wels cats on carp lakes with a float rod. I catch catfish using a dinger or the 4.8 worm all the time

    This game has such high potential. Me saying that means that at this point of my experience with this game, is that i am unsure of what you can do because you cannot catch catfish as easily as you could in reality. (Toss out some
    Cutbait or somethin?) If i find a pattern for cats on travis, i can assure you that i’ll reply to this thread with a response for you asap. However, i do not target cats often. I just bycatch them often on other lakes throwing a worm. Try to get them to rise to the surface using a topwater, then toss a worm at them. Best of luck.

    Hey man, i just realized that if you use a krank rig size 2 hook, you will get cut bait as an option for use. In the description of it, its stated that “catfish pike & other predatory species will never pass up the offer of a free meal”. Maybe give that a shot.
