canadian Night crawlers. They are awesome for bass, and catfish i know. In my opinion dont use lures these work much better. Also, if the worm is still on the hook after you catch a fish with it, keep it on dont throw it away. The fish like it more for some reason. Lastly, you need to hook it just right or the fish will just take it. Hope it helps
Being an Aussie, Hondo I would say shrimp. Also burley ( not sure of spelling) if you were out in a boat fishing to attract them them within hooking & reeling in distance. Just remember if their undersized to throw them back & if you clean & fillet them where your fishing there will be less mess for you when you get home. Down here in country Victoria there are benches set up for at fishing spots for cleaning of your catch as you wait for another nibble.
