How to catch big catfish
Catching large catfish requires a special responsibility and training. Each element gear should be checked and carefully adjusted. Despite the omnivorous catfish, the angler should not get involved openly rude tackle, otherwise bites can never wait. You can rod of the marine type, designed for catching large fish, equipped with braided fishing line and a strong hook. As for the coils, then the best option would be a strong and reliable multiplier.
The appropriate cap is the frog, also live bait works well, which I recommend to use a small IDE, sabrefish or Surat. You can use fillet and fresh fish. In the spring he may be tempted by the bundle of meadow with worms or Nightcrawlers. This fall they successfully caught on fish guts, pre-podkoptit them at the stake. They are firmly attached to the hook and attract fish with very large distances. Unusual showerhead, attracting large catfish, is an ordinary Laundry soap. Apparently the smell of fat, which it is made, so great attracts fish.
The best time for catching trophy catfish is considered early in the morning, although there have been such cases, when in the morning he pecks sluggish, and towards evening begins the real feed. He often takes the bait after dark, especially it is characteristic for the summer period, when som acinetobacters for chehon.
Catfish is a predator cautious, so if you catch from a boat, try not to make unnecessary maneuvers, so as not to move the bait. The boat it is advisable to choose easy and unobtrusive. In most cases, moustached predator, even being hungry, not to hurry to grab the bait first, then gently try and finding nothing suspicious, already missing her completely.

Large catfish rarely lets go of the bait and if the bite moved to the hooking, part of the deal is done. Now remains the hardest – playing. Since you aim to catch trophy fish, then be prepared for any eventuality. Sometimes it happens that a 20-25 pound catfish will behave very wildly, and really large, weighing say 50 kg initially could afford to bring him to the boat, and at the last moment throw all the forces to fight. How will fish in advance is impossible to predict, it all gradually comes with experience. I can only advise, after hooking try to detach the soma from the bottom and in any case do not let him into the snags. It can also dramatically directed towards the fisherman, thereby allowing the fishing line to SAG, and then a sudden surge. So always keep that line tight and adjust the process of catching coil.
But if open down the predator’s heading on within, here to disturb him is not necessary, as the fish quickly tired, and anglers will have more opportunity to maneuver. Often he lies on the bottom, and tear it does not work. In this case, you must knock on the rod. Som can’t stand it and are likely to budge.
