  • Ripraps. Ripraps that are placed next to dams or bridges are great places to search for catfish. Large catfish who like to hide and hunt in this place. Fallen trees are a great indication that there you might find this kind of fish.
  • Deep holes in ponds. If you have a pond nearby, you might have a surprise to catch this fish there, lying in deep water. They only leave this place during summer when the oxygen level is too low for them to feel comfortable.
