Don't know about the paste, but the real worms are about as good a bait as you can find for catfish and panfish---have also caught one or two bass on them while bream fishing.

well if it came with a needle injector, than you stick the needle in the worm and spueeze the paste into the worm. If it dosen't than I hace no clue at all.

It didn't come with a needle injector, but it says on the tube you can put it in lure or spread it on bait. I was thinking, I could just catch some chubs and spread the paste on them or I could cut them open and put it in them. I'm hoping it works!

spreading it on live bait will work but you can even use it without live bait. simply wrap some cotton gauze or batten around the shank of a treble hook and then push the wrapped hook into the paste.the cotton will absorb the smell of the paste.There are ribbed plastic worms made specially for paste baits but the cotton trick does work, just make sure your hook points and barbs arent covered. good fishing.

fisher girl,
I never new they made such a thing. I know that catalpa worms are dynamite on cats so if this is actually catalpa ground into paste it may be good.

I don't know about the paste but the real thing is my favorite number one catfish bait of all time!

Thanks! I can't wait to get out and give it a try. we have had some cold weather lately so I don't know how well they will bite. I think I might test it at the neighbors. There is a catfish over there that I want to catch really bad, just to see how big it is!

Cut a piece of sponge into a 1" diameter ball,and push a medium size treble through it eye first.Tie it on your line,and add splitshot(s) about 4" above the hook(1' in current),as the sponge will float.Squeeze the paste into the sponge and start fishing.

You buy a plstic tube and inject the bait in the tube. I've caught channels and blues on the stuff and tons of bullheads. I'll bet it'll slam some carp too!

beaverlog, would this method still work if the paste is thick? The paste I bought is thick.

The paste will still work if it is thick, it is just some nasty, bad smelling, ooze, that the cat fish are attracted to. It really doesn't matter how thick it is.

I just bought the same thing and you should by the lure with the name on it and tight line it.
