I want to try my hand at catfishing. I just came into a good rig to winch in a big catfish. Tell me where to go please. I just want to cast out sit in my chair and listen to a podcast or read a book and crank in a couple cats for the skillet. Thanks for any tips, locations, advice on rig, bait, ect... I'll be doing my homework in the meantime.


I'd rather fish than buy groceries sometime

There are a few bank spots along 380 you can try. If you have a cast net and get you some shad, that would be your ideal bait. If not, take a tub of worms and go to a local pond or something and get you a mess of bluegill. Cut bluegill or fresh shad will be ideal baits for ya. Below are a few spots I have had luck from the banks. I normally can catch all my bait at the boat ramp or just next to it.

When you say “big” are you looking for a 3-5 lber or are you looking for a 50+lb monster? If the previous you want some cut Shad or some nightcrawlers like mentioned before and fish around some wind blown points. If you’re looking for a true giant like a big blue or flathead your best bet this time of year is to get some live sunfish or bullheads and fish around structure.

Okay. Thanks for the distinction on "big". I want to target the 3 to 5 pounders I figure they are
best for eating and I prefer the channel, blues.. not so much the muds. And I'll ha e to figure out how to aquire the shiners or sunfish/bream for bait. Are bullhead = bream?
