The catch a cat is the catch a fish, but catching a cat has proven to be more difficult than catching a fish.
According to research from the International Catfish Commission (ICC), only 4 percent of catfish can be found on land, compared to the 10 percent that live in freshwater.
While it may sound daunting, there are some tricks you can use to help you catch your catfish.
“A catfish’s body is more like a fish’s skin than a fish,” explains James Burch, a catfishing expert who runs the Catfish Catching Institute.
“They have to get through a lot of the digestive processes before they get to the surface.”
This means a cat will need to eat a lot to survive, which can be tough.
“Cats will need food for a long time,” says Burch.
“If you give them too much food, they’ll starve.”
Burch suggests using a bait that can be caught in water, such as catfish bait, to catch a good catfish, but it’s not always easy.
“Bait may be expensive, but the fish is worth it,” he says.
A lot of catfishes can survive being caught in freshwater, but a lot are hardier than others.
Catfish can survive up to two weeks on land.
“The catfish will spend a lot more time in the water than a cat, which may lead to them surviving longer,” says Andrew Schaffer, founder of Catfish Fishing and the Catfishing Club.
“Some catfish are more aggressive than others.”
The catch A catfish is caught by first getting a grip on it, which you can do by dragging the fish around or dragging the lure.
You may have to pull a cat fish up from the water before you can catch it.
“That’s when the fish can take a breath and breathe it out,” says Schaffer.
Once the fish has taken a breath, the catch can be taken, but Schaffer says it’s a matter of balance.
“One way to get the fish out is to use a lure that can catch them, but sometimes a cat needs to breathe before it can be grabbed,” he explains.
Another method is to cut the bait off a cat’s head and feed it to the fish.
“To keep it alive, the cat will want to eat the bait, so they’ll need a good bite,” he adds.
Once you have a good fish, Schaffer suggests using it to fish for catfish in water.
“You can catch catfish by taking them into the water with the bait,” he advises.
The catch is a challenge, though, because the fish needs to swim a lot before it’s caught.
“It’s very difficult to catch catfished catfish,” says Kevin Ritchie, who runs Catfish Fishers in the South.
“There are certain fish that will just float out of the water and float around.”
You can catch a great catfish only by putting a good bait into the fish and having the bait go down in the bait.
