Where to find them? How to catch them? How to take care of them? All those questions and more are addressed in the September issue of CatfishNOW. As cooler temperatures characterize the weather, anglers know that comfortable and productive fishing adventures are here.
This month’s featured articles begin with a local angler’s description of fishing in his own backyard. As is the case with many in the catfish community, you don’t always have to travel far to fish. Don’t overlook the fishing possibilities that may be available in your local area.
A second featured story describes catfish movements in the fall. Research is presented suggesting that catfish migrations are seasonal. Understanding those movements, and they can be significant, will help anglers enjoy reliable catfishing outings.
This month’s third feature focuses on the importance of fish care, especially for tournament anglers. When several big fish are placed in a livewell special care is needed to ensure the live release required by tournament rules. All anglers, tournament or not, need to pay attention to procedures that result in better catfish conservation.
Additionally, you will find our regular columns, River Rumors (with more on fish care) Why We Catfish, Catfish Basics, Catfish Gear, and Video Tips to improve your success. We hope you enjoy this issue and share it with your friends.
As always, I wish to thank the sponsors that support us. Because of them, we can offer the contents of CFN to our readers free of charge. I hope you will help us thank them by considering their products when you are in the market for catfishing supplies.
Fish with passion!
