Creek Catfishing Tips And Tricks

Having strong quality equipment is necessary anytime that you are going after catfish regardless of where you are fishing. They are an extremely powerful species that will put up an amazing fight. This is what makes catfish fishing so thrilling but it is also the reason many anglers end up with broken lines and snapped rods. Even the smaller ones can put up a fight that is worthy of talking about. If you don’t have the proper equipment when catfish fishing instead of telling the story of how you reeled him in, you may be telling the tale of how he got away.

For creek fishing, a medium to heavy power rod combined with a spinner or a bait casting reel is an excellent choice. Always use a strong sharp hook or there is no way it will penetrate the mouth of the catfish. In most cases, it’s best to use the smallest hooks you can because they will set easier. The circle hook is the favorite one to use for many experienced anglers. This is because it hooks the cat in the corner of the mouth which usually works much better and this makes them easier to remove. Following these tips and tricks can help you have a more successful fishing trip even when you are creek catfish fishing.
