Anybody have any thoughts on catfishing in Rockford? Bait suggestions? I have seen plenty of people at the ramp as its getting dark but how is it during the day? Cut bluegill as bait? Any thoughts or opinions would be very greatly appreciated..

Cut shad would be my choice. But Your going to get hung a lot I would suggest useing a slip float and running your bait about 6 ft deep to avoid getting hung

just about any creek or tributary is loaded with them. I have been catching catfish and gizzard shad both in rockford while jigging spoons for white bass
