Catfish Fishing Lake Conore

Big catfish occasionally feed in turbid water over a muddy bottom. Their preference, however, is clear water and bottom strata of boulder, gravel, bedrock or sand.

In lakes, small and medium catfish often invade the shallows at night. Truly jumbo specimens, however, typically spend the bulk of their time – in darkness or light – in deep offshore holes. Most of the water in the lake runs 20 feet deep, If you find a pocket that plummets to 30 or 40, drop anchor. You’ve pinpointed a catfish hotspot!

Big cats like rough areas – dropoffs, points, riprap around dams, submerged bridges, roadbeds, cem-eteries, clusters of trees, humps, etc. They feel especially comfortable around tall structure. When the depth-finder shows a 10- or 15-foot vertical piece of structure, you’re definitely on top of good cat cover. If strikes are scarce on this structure after sun-down, move into slightly shallower water, trying shoals, points and rocky coves.

Bait choice for catching giant catfish in big waters can vary widely, and it’s important to be flexible. Some good offerings include cut bait, whole live or dead fish, night crawlers, shrimp, chicken livers and prepared baits.

Jug-line fishing at night can prove to be a real hot tip. CLICK HERE for a video about catfish fishing on Lake Conroe
