Asked my little brother who's caught some pretty nice channel cats, he said they use night crawlers.

Tail hook a bluegill and drop into a dark overpass lots of flatheads out there.

This would be my first choice as well. I dont know crap about catching catfish, but I know monsters are caught on bluegills.

  If you are fishing for flatheads, nicapopolis is dead on, bluegills or, and small pan fish is the answer. But for channel cats we use carp guts. I have caught them on nightcrawlers, trout bait, dough balls, even caught a few on Minnie jigs while fishing for Crappie.

Used nightcrawlers for some good action on cats and carp. Thanks for the help
