Was wondering if this warmer weather will improve the catfish bite.

Anyone ?

It can't hurt it any from my perspective.

It will surely improve my chances of being out there. Can't absolutely speak for the fish, but if their metabolism increases with the temp, they should be instinctively wanting to eat more.

I might have read it somewhere, but I've always believed that scent travels further in warm water than in cold water. noidea


Just one more cast!

Went out to the primitive boat ramp at Granger, above the Dam at Granger, and the San Gabriel where 29 crosses it. Total of 9 hours, not even a bite.

I used cut carp, chicken liver, chicken breast, Secret 7, bran flakes/big red dough bait, and worms.
