How To Bait A Spot For Fishing Catfish

When choosing where to place bait in the water you will usually find that it’s best to pick a spot that is shallow. This will help you receive the best results. After choosing your spot on the water you need to go out three or four times a week and bait the spot that you choose. Simply toss the bait overboard in a scattered fashion and wait for it to draw in the catfish. The fish are naturally drawn to locations where they can find an easy food source. However, be careful not to overfeed the catfish or they won’t be interested in taking your bait when you come back to actually fish.

It is also a good idea to find and bait several different spots instead of just one. This way you will have several options when you are ready to go catfish fishing instead of just one. These areas can be close together so you don’t have to travel a long distance in-between when baiting the spots or when fishing. It is also a good idea to find some way to mark your spots. Using a GPS is an excellent choice but using buoys will be just as effective.

Anglers have been baiting spots for catfish fishing for many years and this method still works great today. However, it is always a good idea to check the rules in your area before you bait a spot to make sure you’re not breaking any of your local rules. Some states may not allow baiting for catfish or there may be restrictions on what types of bait you can use.
