Most cats are on the bottom so bobber fishing for them isn't any good anyway.
With the bait your using your also pretty much guaranteeing that you'll only catch channel cats with an occasional blue cat here and there.
To catch big cats you need to be on the bottom with live bait. The bigger the better because big cats like a mouthful.
