Nightcrawlers are a great bait for catching catfish, especially channel catfish, white catfish and bullhead catfish.  A live nightcrawler rigged on the bottom or suspended just off the bottom can work wonders on all 3 types of catfish.  Most anglers will use hooks in the #2 and #4 sizes, but some anglers will put a few nightcrawlers on the same hook.  When this is the case, hooks in the #1, 1/0 and 2/0 sizes will work better.
