Reel Tips: Catfishing Basics

While Wild Side Guide Joey Monteleone has certainly hauled in his share of fish species, in today’s Reel Tips he’s focused on just one…catfish. Most folks think you just throw out some bait on a hook and wait for a big cat to bite, but there are more things to consider. What kind of hook works best? Does it matter what sort of sinker you use? And what really is the best bait? Joey has some answers to these questions and more.
