CatDaddy is the owner and guide at CatDaddy’s Catfishin’ Adventures in Topeka, KS. He is a whiskered pro and spends the overwhelming majority of his year on the water, helping folks hook into channel catfish, flatheads and blue cats. However, when the weather gets cold, the snow starts falling and things get icy, it’s time to pump the breaks. CatDaddy says now is the time for anglers to focus on maintaining their gear in order to keep it in tip top shape for the rest of the year. CatDaddy says he is putting all new Gamma fishing line on his reels, sharpening log line and limb line hooks, making new log lines and winterizing his boat. While it’s not as exciting as bending poles with trophy cats, CatDaddy says this kind of maintenance is crucial to your success. Furthermore, these kinds of tasks are great to include kids in. It teaches them basic skills like how to redo reels, sharpen hooks, tie knots, set rigs and much more. With those basics established they’ll be excited to get out on the water as quickly as possible to put their gear into action.
