Congratulations!! You are now ready to start enjoying your new JugByBert catfishing jugs. Many folks prefer to use live or cut shad as their bait of choice. There are many other baits that work very well which you can try such as live perch, chicken gizzards, bait shrimp, and hotdog wieners. There are even several makers of catfish bait soap believe it or not. Whatever you choose we wish you the best of luck with your new jugs. Thanks again for choosing JugsByBert and remember to "Take A Kid Fishing"!
From our family to yours,
God Bless and we wish you safe adventures
