The catawba worms are on now down here. Might have to get a few and do some catin next week while on vacation.
Funny thing happened at Lake Erie a couple of years ago. I was talking to a couple of the local guys about the fishing up there, one was even a mate on a charter boat for awhile. When I asked if there were any catawba trees around and worms they didn't know what I was talking about. lol

I have keyed in on those and you can kill the carp under a mulberry tree thats dropping fruit if you can ninja up close and drop your hooked berry in front of them.

Tip.. Scald them in boiling water for a couple seconds and they freeze better.. And to make the cats really go nuts for them.. Pinch their head off. Put the hook at their tail end and roll em inside out onto the hook... If you think catalpa worms are catfish crack, try an inside out catalpa worm!. lol
