Catfish Like Rib Rub...
So, I went from cut bluegill to hotdogs, then to hotdogs soaked in garlic powder with 1/3 cup of pickle juice. Caught fish on each of these baits with no discernible difference in bite frequency. I've heard they eat anything.
So, yesterday I went and caught a dozen 3" bluegill. Took them home and cut them in half (after I put them to sleep with ice) and put them in a jar of pickle juice with a couple table spoons of my favorite rib rub! Let them soak over night.
Today, at 1300, I tossed one on my rig and threw it into about 8 feet of water about 10 yards from the bank and before I could rig another line, I had my supper! It was only about a 26 inch Channel, but it was evidently in the mood for barbecue!
I'm surprised. The rib rub has a lot of pepper in it. Maybe I should add jalepeno?
It's a source of great pride for me, that when my name is googled, one finds book titles and not mug shots. Daniel C. Chamberlain
