Catfishin: Where to Find Them on a Summer Day
Folks, today I called Cindee to give her an answer to the question, "What am I going to fish for on a hot, summer day?" The answer is... catfish, and today I'm going to tell you where you can find them.
Catfish are just like us. They like a cool place with plenty of oxygen. This time of year, the spawn is over, and oxygen seems to be plentiful in about 22-24 foot of water. So, you're going to have to fish a little deeper than you've been earlier in the season.
The next thing I want you to keep in mind is landscape. You're looking for a place in the lake where a creek channel feeds in, a ledge, or a drop off. If you can find a place where there are trees below the surface, or shade over the water, those are good spots.
Next week, I'll be back to talk about what to look for in a bait.
