Lake Travis Catfish

Hey Guys!

New to the forum. I’ve got some family coming into town and they want to do some catfishing on Lake Travis. What should I use for bait? Also, any recommendations on areas? Any help would be appreciated! Our boats at Hurst Harbor

Chicken liver, hotdogs, mackerel or nightcrawlers on the bottom. As for areas, I'm not sure as I haven't fished for them there, but I would imagine anywhere is good, if its mid day fish deeper and if its low-light fish a little shallower.
I thought I heard Pace Bend is good for catfish. The longtime record channie (36.5#) was caught in the Pedernales back in the 60’s.
Go to Captain Pete's and hang a french fry over into the water. 40lber guaranteed.

If youre actually trying Pace as @Jeremy said is good, but I think its a night bite. Cow Creek also further up, I've seen some monsters cruising in there while anchored up getting a tan.
