Tips for Catch ‘in Channel Cats

Channel Cat

  1. When fishing for blues or flat heads use a baitcasting reel with a 30-50 pound line.  However with a channel cat on a clear bottom lake can be caught on a spinning reel with a 10-14 pound line.
  2. Catfish will eat live, dead, or prepared baits.  Chicken livers, clam meat, frogs, nightcrawlers, crayfish, limburger cheese, and stinkbait have all been used by anglers to catch blues, flat, or channel catfish.
  3. Catfish tend to hang around logs and heavy cover.  When fishing in this situation, it is best to use a baitcasting reel with a strong line.
  4. Catfish bite best when the water temperature is 70 degrees or warmer.  Night time is also a excellent time to fish for catfish.
