Catfish are some of the most sought-after fish in the industry. Whether you fish for fun, as a hobby or as a living, you can enjoy this fabulous sport for all its worth when you fish for catfish in Kentucky. So what do you need to know before you set out on a Kentucky fishing trip for catfish? How much do you know about catfishing? How much do you know about the area? Where exactly are you going and how can you learn to catch catfish in Louisville Kentucky? Read on for answers.

How to place isn't much different from anywhere else except there are some great places for giving it a shot. Since catfish are well known for being "bottom feeders", there are many different tactics and techniques which meet with success. If a catfish is hungry and you drop a bait, it's almost a guarantee they will bite, no matter what the bait.

The bait you use for fishing for catfish is very important.

Crawdads
Minnows
Grasshoppers
Stink baits

These are some of the many types available and you will need to decide for yourself what works best for you. Remember that catfish have a very strong sense of smell so the best types of bait are those with strong smell. This is why so many Kentucky fishermen use stinkbait to catch their fish (the stinkier, the better). It's also important to be flexible in the type of bait that you use even if you have an all-time favorite. Catfish may decide to be finicky from time to time or may decide they are not in the mood for a particular type of bait you are using. Always be open to trying something new.

To be successful with catfishing also requires that you know where the fish are. Many catfish tend to stay in deeper waters, especially during the winter or cooler months. When there is bad winter weather in Louisville, it may seem there are no catfish around at all. Some catfish prefer brushy areas under logs, fallen trees or debris and other places they can easily and comfortably hide.
