Whatever bait you use do NOT bait in small areas, spread it out to try and avoid cats.

PS. If the group is serious about try to avoid cats buy a sack or 2 of large pellet, soak it in dynamite squid and just hoof it in one spot. the cats will home in on it like a bunch of rabid dogs and hopefully fill themselves up leaving you to carp fish. Good luck.

Unless they are really small, I didnít think Iíd worry too much about catching them. If itís a holiday social then having a few fish is the whole point. Who knows you might hook a monster and end up having an epic battle to remember.

If they are small and a pain in the arse then as suggested maybe try tiger nuts or zig rigs/popped up off the lead.

As said big cats will eat anything and everything, just avoid the obvious.

I was intending to use particles, just wondering if any bookies like mike protein or bird food type baits wood be better or any liquid or additives that would put them off.

Theyíre big cats

Agreed. They donít seem to like particles as much, provided you donít load them with fish oils you should be fine.

That being said, they can be the garbage can of lakes and will eat pretty much anything

They will eat anything, but if you want to avoid them as much as possible then particles are the way to go

Iím on a social trip in a few weeks abroad to woods lake and told thereís a lot of cats in there.. Can anyone recommend a bait that catfish do not really eat? Obviously I know to avoid fish meals, high oil content baits, pellets etc. Thanks in advance
