Secrets for Catfishing in Kansas

Basic Information

Sometimes small things that you do can make a difference and increase the amount of success you enjoy. For example, after spending fifteen to twenty minutes in an area with no bites, it’s recommended that you move on to a new one. However, don’t move to far at a time. You don’t need to move all the way to the other side of the lake or river or upstream a mile to search for the cats. Instead, go a few feet in either direction and try again. This allows you to cover an area better and focus your search for the catfish instead of scattering yourself all over the place.

You don’t need to have a boat to catch catfish. They can be fished from the bank or from wading in the water and casting your line. If you decide to go wading it’s a good idea to invest in a good pair of hip waders to protect yourself from the debris found in the waters. Target the areas where the structures, brushpiles and other means of cover are located. Start walking upstream fishing the different areas as you go until you find an area where the catfish are located.

It’s a good idea to bring along a packed lunch and some beverages. This way if the catfish are biting and you’re reeling them you don’t have to cut your trip short because you get hungry or thirsty. Using these secrets can make your next Kansas catfishing trip more fun and productive whether you live in the area or just visiting. Give them a try the next time you go venturing out to tackle this amazing species of fish.
