Catfish Fishing – a Few Tips to Get You Started


Now we know that there are a lot of people out there that are fishing for all kinds of different fish and we know that there are definitely a lot of people out there fishing for carp etc, Now we should be thinking “I want to catch some big fish that will test my strength and agility”. If you are thinking this then let me introduce you to the “Wels Catfish”, this is a amazing fish that will definitely give you a challenge every time you try to catch these monsters, catfish fishing is huge and is going on all around the world, read on to find out more about the mighty Wels catfish.

Now the Wels catfish isn’t any normal kind of fish these things can grow up to massive sizes, the fish itself has a long body which is scale less just like eels that you may have encountered, the difference being that the Wels catfish has a huge head and a really big mouth which inside contains 100’s of little teeth along the bottom and top sides of the jaw. At the back of these monsters throats they have a crushing plate with which they crush up their prey. The fish also has a couple of fins one which runs near on the length of its body. These fish are also to spot by eye when catfish fishing because their bodies are mainly greeny-black and their eyes are dark, but then also they have creamy-yellowish sides which create a brilliant look, the look also disguises them well in the water from above.


Catfish fishing is made so much fun by these brilliant creatures that will actually shock you by how much strength a fish can really have but before you can start doing this you need to know what are the best ways to catch these fish when you are catfish fishing? Well read on and I will tell you some useful tips that will definitely come in handy.


So when catfish fishing you will want to try and identify where they are hiding out or especially where they are trying to feed, the main places that these types of fish like to hide are in dark quiet places when they are not looking to feed s o this may be handy but it is quite rare that catfish do not want to feed as they like to munch down quite a lot. Right so we know where to do our catfish fishing when they are not trying to feed but if they do which is the most likely thing they will be doing they like to go to places such as weed beds, the hollows under the bank and places where there are objects such as overhanging trees. Catfish fishing is good because when they want to feed a lot of people have said that they tend to come to you rather than having to look for them, another reason is that they will eat a lot of bait and they usually wont mind what but if you really want your catfish fishing to boom then you should use some smelly, fishy bait such as shrimp or tuna which they seem to love. They become attracted to the smell very easily.

One of the best methods used to catch these catfish when catfish fishing is to use live bait as these look very attractive to the catfish. Another bait that you will want to use if you are night fishing is to use worms but I’m warning you now if you only want Wels catfish you are going to need to use this bait at night otherwise you will catch many other fish other than the Wels.

I hope that this has somewhat helped you and given you a slight insight into catfish fishing for the Wels, if you are thinking of taking it up then I definitely recommend doing so.

Good Luck!
