    First of all a lot of people have stupid comments and just want to bash on youtube. Cool.
    Catfish have poor eyes, since some can be in muddy water up to 100+ feet deep. Their eyes are useless. They use their excellent sense of smell and tentacles to hunt. The soap will slowly dissolve leaving a scent trail, the fish will follow the trail to the bait and attack. Just like a shark. You use blood to draw them in and then they will attack the bait….

    its because of the animal fats that were used to make the soap it attracts the fish. You can also use unscented dial and even zest soap.

    I have not heard of this type of bait before. Think I will stick with my chicken livers and gizzards instead.
