Mr Whiskers, better know to most as catfish. There are the different, Channel catfish, Blue catfish and Flathead catfish. One thing about cat fishing anyone can do it. Oh , you can buy a big fancy rig like the pro bass fishermen, which some pro cat fishermen do but you can have just as good of luck setting on the bank of the water with your rod propped in a forked stick. You see, catfish love to lay it the cut backs of the bank as well as drop offs in deeper water of river and lakes as well as lakes and ponds. You see you can find catfish in big rivers, like the might Ohio and some not as large as the Wabash, White and St. Joseph. That pretty much spans the whole state of Indiana south to north. I know for a fact that the St. Joe has two types of catfish in it as I have caught Channel and Blue both in the South Bend area and all from the bank with rod propped in a forked stick in the middle of the afternoon sun. So those of you who think that you can only catch catfish at night, let me tell you, you are missing the boat, so to speak. Granted that more catfish are caught after dark but if you can’t get out there at night, give it a try during the daylight hours.
The Ohio River is the place that most think of producing catfish and is true that it has all three species in abundance and at trophy size. The state record catfish came from a lake while the Ohio State record came from the Ohio.
Where to look for catch fish, logjams, fallen trees, submerged log or stumps, around rocks or other areas that offer an eddy or current breaks. Deeper holes and behind islands and underwater humps.
You want to use heavier equipment and line when going after catfish. You have to be able to horse catfish from where the lay. So go ahead and join a great number of people who are going after the cat in places like Patoka Lake, Monroe Reservoir, Salomonie Reservoir and ponds and pit throughout Indiana.
Remember to stay save where ever you go after the big one.
