CJ’s Catfish Bait is an Oklahoma based catfish bait manufacturer that manufactures several different kinds of catfish punch baits and a dip bait for catfishing. CJ’s is a family run business that is owned and operated by some die hard fishermen.
I first met Charles of CJ’s Catfish Bait in Fort Worth Texas at Olsen’s Pro Am Fishing Shop when I was there dropping off a big load of Redneck’s Catfish Bait Soap. The owner of Olsen’s introduced us and Charles and I spent a bit of time talking catfishing, hanging around the tackle counter there. I talked to Charles a lot that day about his catfish punch bait and some of his other products and we talked a lot about our different fishing styles and techniques.
While talking to Charles he was throwing out rapid fire questions about some of my recent guided catfish trips and I could see as I was answering and we were talking that Charles was a professor of “catfishology” like myself by the questions he was asking. As soon as I got the opportunity to “return fire” I started asking him questions and learned quickly that he spends a lot of time fishing from the bank (aka bank fishing or shore fishing) and is also highly successful in doing so using his CJ’s Catfish Bait.
Fast forward to January of 2011 and I was looking at some paperwork from a local tackle show and saw his name on the list of exhibitors for the show that weekend, and my wheels got to turning about spending some time with Charles talking about his baits, bank fishing, catfishing, and whatever else we could come up with. I reached out to Charles a couple of days later and met him over at this tackle show the next weekend where we filmed about 30 minutes of catfishing videos covering a pretty wide variety of subjects.
This is not a seminar that has been filmed or a scripted video but Charles and I shooting from the hip talking catfish.
