Fall has arrived and cooler temperatures are pushing a drop in water temperatures. In response to falling temps, catfish are moving from shallow feeding flats to deeper water with plenty of structure. CatDaddy says the bite for both bluecats and flatheads is fantastic right now, but you have to know where to find them. If you want to be successful, a certain amount of scouting will have to be done to pinpoint the underwater lairs of these catfish. If you're fishing rivers, CatDaddy says anglers need to look for deep holes. These holes can be found in deep crevices around bends at the bottom of eddies, in close proximity to big trees that have fallen in the river where the water cuts around them and more. If you're fishing lakes, head to the deep end and seek out structure that has been in place for a long time. Catfish aren't solitary creatures, so depending on the size and depth of a hole, CatDaddy says as many as 20 to 30 catfish could be camped out. It's like a boarding house, he says, they'll stack right up in those holes. Once you've found their favorite haunts, drop some food right on top of them and get busy catching those cats. Right now the catfish will eat virtually anything you put in front of them, he says, you really can't go wrong.
