Along with the 4 proven techniques to catch giant catfish above, there are many other tips that can help improve the amount of success you have when you go fishing for the big boys. Several of these are discussed below.

The best time of the year to seek out the blue catfish or the flathead is usually in the summer and the winter. In the summer, the water levels will be lower and the warm water makes them more active. In the winter, they are hungry and in search of a good meal that’s hard to find when the waters are cold. That’s what makes these two seasons a good time to seek out the catfish.

Take along extra rods, reels and other gear with you when you go fishing. You never know when your rod might get snapped into or when the gears will be stripped out of your reel from the weight. If you have back-up, you can continue fishing instead of calling it a day.

Don’t be afraid to use big tackle when seeking out giant catfish. Many anglers don’t think about how important it is to match the tackle to the rest of the gear. Circle hooks usually yield some great results as well. So, it’s a good idea to take some along with you when you go fishing.

The giant catfish is going to put up an amazing struggle. You need the right equipment in order to reel them in so it’s important to make sure you have good quality gear that will hold up to the struggle. Catching giant catfish is a huge challenge but it’s an experience that you’ll always remember.
