One very popular way of fishing for catfish with these types of baits is to use a slip bobber rig. There are many different catfish rigs you can use for catching channel catfish but the slip bobber rig is without a doubt one of the preferred setups among catfish anglers.
Slip bobber rigs offer a high degree of sensitivity and also allow the angler to have a visual bite indicator. Channel catfish often have a very subtle bite so the combination of these two elements makes the slip bobber rig a very effective way of setting up for catfish fishing.
In this video from Learn To Catch Catfish we walk you through the process of rigging a slip bobber for catfish fishing with punch baits and also some of the advantages of using slip corks for catfishing.
