Down in new orleans for some work. There was a tv show
on last night called swamp'd something like that. In the
bayou some where near the city some locals couldnt catch
any catfish since crabs got to it first. Using carp, buffalo
for bait. One old guy told the others use yellow onions.
On the show they set out a line with many hooks. Sure
enough they caught cat after cat! Tried it today and caught
cats until i ran out of onions. Only had one though. Local
guy at a bait shop said fresh-brackess dont mater they
will bite it.
