Drift Fishing Tips For Catfish
- Outfit your boat with 4 to 6 heavy duty baitcasting reel outfits. The rods should be at least an 8 feet in length.
- Use a 2 ounce sinker with live bait on a 6/0 hook.
- Next, adjust the rods so that the bait is near the bottom and the line is kept vertical.
- Lastly, in your boat, make sure the rods are perpendicular to the gunwhales and use a trolling motor to control the drift speed.
Drift fishing can help an angler catch catfish that are hiding in large flats, around boulders, logs, or other large obstructions in the river.
