Great Cut Catfish Baits

When seeking out the mighty catfish there are a few tips that can help you be more productive. For example, the catfish are usually more active and aggressive at night so the best time to fish for cats would be when it’s dark. Of course, night fishing requires extra care to make sure you stay safe so be prepared before heading out. If you can’t go during the night the next best time would be early morning or late evening.

The catfish will be more active when you’re fishing in warm water than if the water is cold. This is because their metabolism speeds up in warm water and slows down when it’s cold. Once you hook a catfish you need to be ready for the fight. They will not be reeled in without a struggle and if you’re not prepared it just might get away.

Inspecting your gear before you go out is a good idea to make sure it’s in good condition and can handle the struggle. Many catfish have been lost due to weak or damaged fishing line and fishing rods that snapped under the pressure. Take some time to learn about the type of catfish you’re seeking out because they’re all a little different. Knowing all you can about the type of catfish you want to catch will help you choose the technique and the type of cut bait that will work the best.
