Catfish Fishing Videos: Where To Find And What To Get

I’m looking for catfish fishing videos. Where can I find some video tutorials for catching catfish? If there aren’t any, what do you recommend for a beginner?

If you have access to a sporting mega mart such as Bass Pro Shops, or another major hunting and fishing store, they are sure to have some good videos available, and in most cases, they have them playing on television sets in the store, so you can be sure you are getting a video that is of good quality and sound advice. If you don’t have access to a major hunting and fishing store, or of you simply are not able to find what you want in the hunting and fishing retailer you have nearby, consider getting online, doing a search, and buying from online merchants. In many cases you can find videos from well known anglers known for their expertise. One such expert is Bill Dance. If you purchase Bill Dance Outdoors: Catfishing, you are certain to see some great tips and techniques, as well as some fascinating catfishing footage. Another good choice for catfishing videos would be loggin into the Catfishing America web site, and viewing some of the short ‘how to’ video tutorials they have available to help you maximize your potential for catching catfish. One standard piece of advise for novice catfishermen is to fish a weight that will keep your bait hovering over the bottom of the body of water you choose. Expect to catch big catfish near submerged logs, natural holes in the bottom, or areas providing good cover. Use standard stink bait or chicken hearts or livers. If you choose chicken liver, take along small squares cut from pantyhose to wrap around the liver before you put it on the hook (this will keep it from falling off the hook when you get a bite), and consider fishing without a bobber after you get used to holding your line and feeling the bite when a big old catfish grabs your line. If you do these things, you are should have good results.
