If the fish are bitting then I realy don't bother with an attractant. But when they are slow to take and you have put every thing you can think of in front of them with little luck. I keep a bottle of catfish mojo on the boat and it realy seems to work. I just give my cut bait a little spray before chucking it out there and I have gotten bites when I wasn't getting any before.

Catfish attractants go into the same category as stink baits in my book,Worthless junk.

I have heard of menhaden milk and thought I might try it someday, might help when the bite is slow. Saltwater and striper fisherman use it. I would like to hear if anyone has tried it for cats.

I have never tried the milk (actually it's first I have heard of it) but a couple years ago I got a bottle of Menhaden oil and it seemed to work reel well for channel cats. I put it in a small squeeze bottle and put a little on my bait at a time.
If you close your mind to possibilities then you may be shutting the door on a great fishing trip. When I can't get the bait I want or the bait I have is not what the fish want then what does it hurt to experiment a little. You never know unless you try today may be the day that catfish are only biting on smores.

Menhaden milk is Menhaden oil, its just blended with something to keep it from rising to the surface.

Kurtis it's not that I'm close minded I use to try them years back and tried enough of them to know there not worth my time or money. I've heard many say they use shrimp that began to spoil and others say they catch channel cats on frozen bait fish but neither ever worked for me. It could be many reasons why this is the case such as different waters,the amount of fresh bait fish in a body of water or even the PH levels of water. I live in fl and find nothing works like fresh natural baits weather that be worms,bait fish or insects that are native to the area. Like night crawlers imported from other states are no where near as good as the red worms from my worm beds they may be great other places but here red worms from my beds will out do them 20 - 1 . I don't know about other places but here I can net 4 - 5 different baits in a cast net in no time and fresh grass shrimp and minnows in a dip net almost any where I fish. I don't use store bought baits or attractants but that's just me I don't tell others not to try them because it's one of those to each his own kind of things,JMO.
