Catch Big Summer Catfish

In the summer, big channel catfish become very active with the warmer water temperatures. While most anglers use some type of dead bait, natural baits such as cheese or dough baits and nightcrawlers, the easiest way to start landing bigger channel catfish is to use live bait fish such as bluegill, creek chubs, shiners, etc.

Catfish have been known to hit a fast-moving crankbait in the summer, so don’t think that a 10 pound catfish won’t be able to grab a live bluegill attached to a hook and a weight a foot off the bottom. Try it this summer and you’ll catch bigger catfish on average.
