FREE 10 Catfishing Mini-Course

discovercatfishing.com I caught this huge post spawn blue catfish while drift fishing the Ohio River in early summer. i was using a Carolina rig baited with a big skip jack head in the sunniest and hottest part of the day about 2:00 in the afternoon. Drift fishing is the best technique for fishing for catfish in the summer time. Fish around ledges and drops along the river channel. Deep channel banks or channel bends are good for big catfish but the deep flats will produce numbers of 5-15 pounder’s. Use cut skip jack herring or shad for bait and chunk it in large pieces for the trophy catfish and smaller pieces for the fast action. More on Drift Fishing for Catfish discovercatfishing.com
