Chum, works great if you can get it out early and the nastier the better. I have seen guys tat use corn rotting in 5 gallon bucket fermented with a quart of malt liquor. My God that stuff could make you puke, but it draws the Cats! Don't spill it on anything because the smell will not come out. A dog food can with holes punched in it is about a good a chum as any and they will come your way to investigate if you have the time to wait.
Fishing at night or day? Cat's bite great rights after dark up through midnight and beyond.
