Dead minnows or fresh cut bait. Like pike, the cats feed at ice out on all the dead fish that shows up.
 A killer bait would be some finger mullet from down south, about 6"-8", cut in half.
 I always bring a few pounds home after surfcasting the southern shores on vacation. Just freeze it and keep it till next year. :tipup:
I wish I was in heaven sittin down..........on a 5 gallon pail!
