Its catfishing season! Catfish are found in water temperatures ranging from 70-85 degrees. They can reach weight of 50 to 100 lbs and bringing them in can be a challenge. Catfish can put up a fight, so its best to have quality tackle.
Choosing quality tackle will depend on the type of catfish being caught. Channel, flathead, white and blue catfish are the most common species. When fishing for channel or white cat on a clean bottom river, use a medium power pflueger spinning reel outfit with a 14lb mono line. For blues or flatheads, a pflueger heavy baitcasting outfit with a 50lb line will be much studier if fishing in heavy cover.
