Trophy catfish can be caught from the banks as well.
Seriously, we have seen it. New high dollar SeaArk, Trackers, and Storm Cat boats come with high dollar fuel and maintenance bills. You don’t need all that headache to catch trophy catfish. Bank fishing is a effective, easy, and relaxing experience. Here are a few tips and tricks we have gathered from experience and our pro staff bank anglers to make your bank fishing adventure a little more enjoyable.
TIP #1 – PACK EFFICIENTLY
Timing plays a key factor. There are specific times at specific locations when the bite is at its best. Do your due diligence to get as much information as you can on the body of water you are planning to fish.
However just by picking the best time and location, big fish are not common. This is things that make it so special to put a trophy cat in the net. To catch the large fish consistently, you must be on the water as much as possible. The more time you put in the better chances you will have of landing a trophy fish.
TIP #5 – BACKPACKS ARE VERY HELPFUL
Backpacks will make your life so easy. Not only can you haul you tackle around you can bring food, water, and other gear for the trip. Make sure the back pack is durable enough to handle the abuse of sinkers and terrain you are fishing. You will be amazed how much you can fit into one, so try not to overload it.
