Noted as being one of the most important factors in finding
consistently good cat fishing. In rivers, structures are the log
jams, brush piles, sunken logs, below riffles, points off sand
bars, cut banks, and drop-offs where feeder streams enter rivers.
Sand or gravel bottoms, no mud, with a moderate current are good
consistent catfish attracting spots. You�ll find catfish midway
between swift water and dead calms.
This will take some
experimentation each time out. Remember, structure to catfish is
home, a place where they congregate in large numbers during the
time when they are not out prowling for food.
RIGGING...To rig your line, first put your line thru an egg-shaped
or slip sinker. Then tie on a snap swivel and attach your hook,
worm or sponge to the swivel. The snap swivel makes it easy to
change worms with deeply hooked fish. Now bait your rig and get
ready for some good fishing. Since catfish are very sensitive to
resistance, fish with an open bail so that when the catfish picks
up the bait, he can run with it. Be sure to set the hook hard when
he starts to run off with it.
Now available to the public... Two different temperature ranges of
dip baits. The extra-stiff dip bait for extremely hot weather of
over 90 degrees, and the regular dip bait for normal temperature
ranges of 70->90 degrees.
USING DIP BAITS...Dip Baits are noted for their fast action on
catching catfish. Fishing dip baits require baiting more often,
but usually produces more fish, the reason being that the bait
milks off the worm at a faster rate than dough bait does. After
rigging your line, attach a worm or sponge to your swivel, making
sure you use a dry worm, (the bait won�t readily adhere to a wet
worm, blot dry with a towel first if necessary) use a small stick
and stir the bait well, then push your worm into the bait far
enough to cover the worm.
Doc�s Carp Baits are a proven carp getter bait. Made available in
two flavors, Vanilla and Anise, they are both a dough type bait to
be used with a treble hook.
USING CARP BAITS...Carp Baits are designed to stay on your hook
for a longer period of time, thus eliminating the need to bait so
often. Just remove a small amount of bait from the container and
roll it in a ball around a treble hook, making sure the shank and
eye of the hook are covered with bait.
Our customers say this is a good way to help hook catfish and they do not get tangled as much in underwater brush.
