NL200 crying call in 3BP 200bb deep

Blinds: $1.00/$2.00 (5 Players) UTG: $200.00
CO: $403.50
BN: $217.45
SB: $498.44
BB: $612.32 (Hero)
Preflop ($3.00) Hero is BB with A Q
UTG folds, CO raises to $5.00, 2 folds, Hero raises to $21.00, CO calls $16.00
Flop ($43.00) Q 8 2
Hero bets $20.42, CO raises to $61.26, Hero calls $40.84
I probably check QQ here most of the time. AQo w/o a club or heart seems like the best bluffcatcher because it blocks QQ which might not want to 4bet/get it in pre this deep and it doesnt block flushdraws/backdoor flushdraws.
Turn ($165.52) Q 8 2 4
Hero checks, CO bets $100.00, Hero calls $100.00
River ($365.52) Q 8 2 4 J
Hero checks, CO bets $221.24 and is all in, Hero calls $221.24
T9s gets there but if I fold this I'm never calling.
Final Pot CO wins and shows three of a kind, Eights.
BB lost and shows a pair of Queens.
CO wins $805.00
Rake is $3.00

At the end of this hand I was wondering if I should fold all of my bluffcatchers at some point in this hand without reads. Do people really bluff in these spots enough?
