A Word from our Sponsor: How to Catch Catfish the Fun and Easy Way

I will get to How to Catch Catfish the Fun and Easy Way in a moment. First, I would like to share a couple things with you.

Through the years we've kept our website pristine, without the distracting clutter of advertisements as we often see on other similar food/cooking sites. And, we strive to keep it that way as much as possible.

We have arrived at a juncture, however, where we must try to create revenue to keep on publishing these wonderful and delicious original Cajun recipes.

I have created a sister site: TopCat Fish Bait and Hooks.

Our flagship product (and the only one at the moment) is an all-natural formula with over 21 ingredients that attracts catfish like crazy!

I discovered the original formula quite by chance while preparing and testing new Cajun recipes and have continuously improved on it through the years. One of the reasons I named the bait "TopCat" is because it seems to attract more of the delicious frying-size fish between 12" - 16" or (1 - 4 lbs.).

Mom's and kids love it! Dads, too... that's because the dads are trying it and finding out that it works! And, it doesn't stink! There are no foul odors! That is a BIG PLUS for the women folk and kids. It is also the best system that I have ever come across to teach others who have not catfished before, an easy and enjoyable way to learn the sport.

For a limited time I am offering FREE PRIORITY SHIPPING with every $20 minimum purchase--PLUS an additional Bonus Packet of my Premium Bait Mix (30 -40 baits) FREE--(Shipping & Handling also included)--if you pledge to share it with someone who would love to learn how to fish. That deal is hard to pass up.

Act NOW because this offer may end soon. To learn more about this NEW exciting product please visit: TopCat Fish Bait & Hooks. If you would like to Buy Now please click on the image below. Get hooked on the BEST and catch a bunch the fun and easy way. Happy catfishing!

Testimonial: "I’ve known Jacques over 25 years now. We’ve fished together dozens of times. I’m  here to tell you that I have personally caught 100s of frying-size catfish on his dough bait over the years (and quite a few that were much larger than frying-size). 

The bait smells great and seems to outperform the stinky blood baits catfishers have become accustomed to. 

If anyone wants to teach young ones how to fish with the least amount of effort, and the most fun, then I would strongly suggest you place your order for some TopCat Premium Catfish Dough Bait Mix now. (It’s limited. He only prepares 1 batch per week.) 

The bait keeps forever and it will save you time and money. And, it is so easy to use. Even a kid can do it. I guarantee you will get hooked on it just like I did.” …. Nick Masters, Hooks, TX

35 Pound Bigmouth Buffalo Fish Caught on TopCat's Premium Catfish Bait

It seems that catfish are not the only lovers of TopCat's Premium Homemade Catfish Bait. As shown in the photo below, 17 year old Josh B. of Texarkana, Texas landed this 35 lb. giant Bigmouth Buffalo fish while fishing for catfish with our exclusive dough bait. I understand it was one heck of a fight between Josh and this monster fish. The fish was caught near Maud, Texas in Lake Wright Patman. That is the look of one happy fisherman. Way to go Josh!
 Buffalo Fish Caught on TopCats copy

The bigmouth buffalo, Ictiobus cyprinellus, also known as the gourd head, redmouth buffalo, buffalo fish, bernard buffalo, roundhead, or brown buffalo, is a large species of the Catostomidae or "sucker" family. The bigmouth buffalo is a dull brownish olive color with dusky fins. Like other suckers it has a long dorsal fin, but unlike others it has a large oblique and terminal mouth. It is the largest of the buffalo fish and reaches a length of more than 4 ft (1.2 m) and 65 lb (29 kg) in weight. It is distributed from the Red River of the North, Manitoba, Canada and North Dakota, United States to the Ohio River and south in the Mississippi River system to Texas and Alabama in the United States. It lives in sluggish areas of large rivers and shallow lakes and streams. ~ Source: Wikipedia
