    Catfish bite right now?

    My daughter wants to go fishing for catfish this weekend so i was wondering if anyone has any advice on what the fish are doing at this time of year? Are they shallow early? Along some drops? What's the best bait? I'll be fishing for Channel Cats at a local lake any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I read about a cheap catfish bait in one of my fishing books that I tried and it works pretty good.You cut hotdogs up in 1/2 inch slices,put in a container with diced garlic and strawberry unsweeten koolade,let it sit over night and use the next day. If you have some leftover after fishing put it in the freezer to keep.
    Catfish are biting now..fattening up for the winter.

    Where do you plan on fishing? The Ohio river is a hot spot right now, but you have to have fresh shad. The river is full of them. The fish we caught were in 15-26 feet right off a drop off. Paylakes are turning back on with the cooler weather. Use shrimp (fresh) not frozen,or chicken breast shooked in strawberry koolaid. There has been a few pulled out of Rough, they were off off cut up bluegill,and chicken livers. I dont know where or how deep, sorry. Farm ponds are a good choice this time off year. The water is starting to clear up since the cows are not getting in them as much as in the summer. I like to use livers and cut bait in ponds. Hope this helps, good luck and have fun.
