Question: All catfish bait is created equal.... right? No...  Because the smell and texture make a difference.... 

Question: What really makes a catfish bait good?  Smell -- but not how it smells to us but how it smells to them. The more it stinks to a catfish, the more they like it.

Question: Is some catfish bait really better than others? Oh yeah

Question: Is catfish bait in punch form better than dip bait? I think so. The smell and bait ball ball last longer in the water and has a natural texture closer to catfish food. 

Question: All catfish bait has some secret ingredient.. right? Yes, but that's all I can say.  

Question: What's the connection between catfish bait and the senses of a catfish?
When it comes to senses, catfish are turbo-charged. Their sense of taste is unbelievable. Their sense of smell is unparalleled. Few fish hear as well, and catfish also have excellent sight and a superb sense of touch. On top of all that, catfish have other sensory abilities that seem more like science fiction than science fact. So, when the right catfish bait is put in their surroundings, they immediately begin the hunt for the source of the substance causing their sensory overload.
