Destroying Arizona Channel Catfish on Punch Bait
I destroyed these fish on this Stryker punch bait! I was not a believer in punch bait until this day. Arizona catfish must be a different breed! I am usually a fresh catfish bait type of guy, but people were swearing on this Stryker punch bait. I had to put it to the test and man did it perform! It even out fished my garlic liver! I know channel catfish typically prefer a smelly bait, but I have just never had any luck on punch bait for catfish until this fishing trip. Stryker bait was on non stop! Alpha blood scent was doing the best this day, but I did catch a few on anchovy scent as well. Arizona catfishing in the urban ponds always seems to produce something. These fish are juiced up and feeding heavily! The Arizona urban ponds have been getting stocked heavily, so find the closest pond to you and give it a shot!
