Louisville Kentucky Catfishing

In the hot days of Kentucky summer, the catfish are usually located closer to the bottom of the water source when the sun is out and come up closer to the surface when it gets cooler or after dark. If the sun is shining brightly on the water, you can expect the fish to be a few feet below this where it is cooler. You may want to try slower moving rigs and jigs down in deeper waters to attract the fish.
