What do you know about catfishing in Texas?

Texas is a hotspot for catfishing. The Tawakoni, Cedar Creek and Texoma are some waters to fish. Then there is Amistad and Choke Canyon to fish. The fishing in Texas is good all the time. The blues and channels are always being pulled out of the water. One thing I do know for sure is that the anglers down in Texas are fishing with shad to catch the fish. The bait is being raised off the bottom with a float about ten inches above the hook. As the bait glides by the catfish, they can bite easily. Catfish fishing is not like fishing for walleye or bass. The best time to fish for cats is at night. The best time is just after sunset and right before sunup. The fish are active and hungry at night. If you are looking for a place to drift fish, the Richland Chambers by the dam is a good place to fish. There are many blues in this area. You can sit and drift to cover the area. The blues are in there and they are always looking for the injured shad or bass that push into the area. It is a good place to fish for nice size blues. Any of these areas will produce some good catches as long as you use the right bait and get into the right area. You will be surprised at how many fish you can catch by drifting and baiting the blues and channels on any given day.
