Fishing Tips For Catfish - Where To Go Fishing For The Large Catfish

Author : Richard Charles

When I first started off doing some fishing catfish during my earlier years as a child with my father even though I have captured some Blue, and Flat head Catfish, Blue Channel Cat fish have always been my major particular target. We mainly fish these from the Red River and St.Louis Rivers and sometimes the Mississippi also. Wherever I can find a small nook and also cranny where the current isn't so quick there all the time seem to be catfish camouflaging looking for several fresh new bait. Catfish can also be found wherever you can find a rugged bottom level too.

The optimum time to capture catfish usually is in the evening till morning hours right before the sun comes up, and so they generally appear to be probably the most active about the full moon. Catfish also like to hang in openings the location where the water is a little much deeper. Once more, anywhere the current is a little more slowly in addition to a place exactly where food may accumulate is great spot to uncover catfish.

Many other Catfish Fishing points that we used over the years tend to be exactly how I rig my own pole. Now this is fairly simple and easy. I like to use a medium sized pole about 6 to eight feet long with about 17 to 20 lb test line. Several choose 50 or 60 lb test however the lighter line has all the time worked perfect for me because I have found it is just easier to handle whenever tying or braiding hooks or possibly getting the line out of snags. The main reason I use the lighter lines are that catfish is much less more likely to notice any friction along with lighter line when compared with a heavier line. I prefer to fight the actual fish a touch too, with a heavier line it's to easy simply to drag the particular fish wherein I think can take the sport and exhilaration out of it.

So far as hooks go I've constantly just used an even, medium-sized hook, without any barbells on it. Catfish have absolute tough skin tone and I also seldom loose a catfish after I have absolutely hooked all of them so that you won't need a trebble hook or any distinct kind of hook with regard to Catfishing. Before I put my hook on I always simply slide one particular glide sinker on with the size of it going by how fast the river current is, and one clip in sinker or even a swivel to help keep the sinker from your bait. I like to position the sinker about 2 feet out of the bait so your bait can float and move around inside the river current.
