- Bluegill are an excellent bait for larger catfish on this lake. Close attention to specie specific presentation and tackle. Utilize a shorter leader to resist snagging, and matching hook size to specific bait (8/0 for 6"+ bait, 5/0 for 3-6", 2/0 for under 4"). Focusing on wind direction, as it relates to structure(wood, hump, point, channels), will absolutely help you zero in on fish. Bites usually prefer the upwind side. Lastly, secure rods stay dry, but there are monsters here that break 30# test. Good luck and see you out there!
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The water temperature is climbing and the catfish will start becoming more active now. The catfish spawn is right around the corner and generally all catfish species will be looking to spawn. Blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish spawn in much the same areas. Mostly spawning in deep tree lay downs that have lots of shade, holes in the bank, sunken barrels and tires. With baitfish becoming active, it?s time to catch some small sunfish, bluegill, shad and frogs and getting the line in the water.
