What bait works best on catfish in Ohio?

There is no one bait that works best for catfish in Ohio. What you will find though is that certain baits work best in given fishing areas. That can change though over time based on seasons, water temperatures, and other variables. With all of that in mind I suggest you have several types of bait with you when you go out. Then you can try different ones if the first one you try isn’t offering you success.
You can ask people that fish in a given location what types of bait the catfish are drawn to at that point in time. You can also ask around at the local bait shops. They will have a good idea of what people are doing well with based on stories that are shared and what is being sold.
You can also go online to check out Ohio fishing reports. Not only will you find information about the bait used for catfishing but the size of the catch as well.
