How do you rig anchovies for catfish?

Asked: Nicole Lynn Outdoors, Last Updated:

Catfish prefer to feed on natural baits like shad and bluegill which means they will also feed on dead anchovies because of their fresh, natural scent and texture. Once thawed, anchovies fall apart very easily so it is recommended you use bait thread or even dental floss to keep your anchovies attached to the hook.
