Free-Lining Cut Bait to Catch Catfish (Ft. Realistic Fishing, Panfish)

The light tackle drifting has been on fire. We caught several catfish this day using cut skipjack. We were free-lining the bait with no sinkers. We let the weight of the bait naturally sink down. This presentation seems to entice the catfish to take the bait. We did catch a few catfish on the heavy duty rods suspending our baits 2-4 feet off the bottom. The post spawn is here and the catfish are hungry.
