    Hey all, i was planning on going catfish fishing next weekend and was just wondering what the best bait, time, waters etc. would be. We will probably set up a bunch of poles, then go fishing.

        if your setting up a bunch of poles try a bunch of baits. all the cat fish i caught in ct were on either worms or some kind of greasy disquisting food. rotten meat i heard works good to. my grandfather said they would use rotten chicken in arkansaa he said it was the best catfish bait he ever used he said the worst it smells the more they bite

          oh sorry and the best time is as late as night as posible in slow moving or still waters they seem to hang around the bottom in all parts of the water whether it be deep or shallow

            Chicken livers, worms(night-crawlers),brem(sun-fish,etc.) and stink baits all work well. As for time, I'd have to say any time from dark till dawn.
            Good luck and Good fishing !

              It depends on where you live with the waters and times. As for bait, it usually is the same for all cat fish... they will love chiken/turkey liver (which you can get at the local grocery story) and also a little more expensive is the Berkley Catfish Dough which I have heard works pretty good too. Well I wish you luck, catch the monster!
