That's going to be hard to answer without speakin the language. I would say they do like cut bait (perch, shad, shrimp), earth worms, liver, stinkbait and a few more critters that may hit the water. I use mostly live perch when I ccatfish, then cutbait for a backup. I've even caught good numbers of catfish by hooking minnows on troutlines. Good luck with whatever bait u use.

fisher girl,
Why do you ask about baby channel cats? I fish for catfish all the time channel, blue or flathead. If you want any of the catfish especially channel cats, continue using worms, or liver (I use both on the same hook). You might want to use a smaller hook but I wouldn't. Nothing wrong with catching the daddy catfish.

Catching the daddy catfish is fun, but we have a couple baby catfish that we want to raise, and one is to small to eat the minnows we put in there. I wanted to know what to feed it.

You can feed it liver or even hot dogs. If you have them in a tank, be sure to keep a little current moving through the tank, as the channels love moving water.

If you are feeding them in an aquarium a standard gold fish food will be fine.

Try waxworms or maggots.If you don't mind putting them in your fridge they keep until they're used up,and they're the right size.Please don't use bubblegum.Not good for the fish.
