Yessir. Doc's extra sticky. I bought some Catfish Dynamite by Strike King and it works pretty good too.

The only thing I don't like about doc's stink bait, is the catfish usually swallow the worms too far & they are hard to get out..

Cut bait works good, but we mostly use little bream for running trotlines.

I had that problem a few years back and came up with my own solution. Forget the treble setup, I took a regular worm hook, about a 2/0, cut a piece of drinking straw about an inch long, put the straw on your line, tie the hook, let the straw slide down on the shank of the hook and you have it. You can hold one end of the straw and push the other end in the docs. it holds the bait better and you don't have to deal with the trebles. If you are tight lining you want to put your weight on before you put the straw on.
