4. Bait That Stinks. When looking for baits for catfish you want the baits that are really stinky. Now this may sound weird but you will want the stink to be a sort of fresh stink. You also want the bait to be as fresh as possible. So in saying fresh that means you should always try and stay away from frozen baits when it comes to bait for the catfish.. If you are an avid fisher person for catfish be sure to always have a place to keep your bait fresh.

5. Importance Of Water Temperature. If one thing is really important its knowing the water temperature before setting out on your catfish journey.
