I use a 15lb. Test. Line

Catfish feed by smell and sight but usually monofilament or braided line is fine for them. More expensive flurocarbon line is normally not necessary but does work well if you want to use it. For smaller cats 10 to 15 pound test monofilament line is good but for big cats 30 pound test or heavier monofilament and braid from 30 pound test up is best.

Bullet or round sinkers both work. You need a strong swivel when fishing for big cats. A short shanked hook is usually used. For years a straight shanked hook with an offset point was common. Now, circle hooks are usually used for catfish. Choose a size suitable for the size catfish you are trying to catch. A #1 hook is good for pan size catfish, a 2/0 is good for fish in the 3 to 5 pound range, on up to a 10/0 for monster catfish.

Catfish will hit almost any bait. For flatheads, live minnows and sunfish are best. Earthworms, liver, stink baits, crickets, cut bait.

Lets meet at Carl's Jr. right off the freeway and there is a bait shop across the street 7pm.
