    Default What month do channel catfish start biting in your state

    I was wandering what month of the year channel cats start biting good on everyones home waters. For me in SW Va. It seems march is the month that I can tell a difference.

    I think Feb, March and April is when the bite has increased for "Spring" and then agian October, November and December. But, like Charles said, they bite pretty good year round.

    I usually catch them in early spring when the crappie start to spawn. Maybe early March. But that's just when I start fishing for them, so that's when I catch them. Also in July they seem to be all fired up when they come off the nest. Channels bite year 'round, but I think the hot times are in late winter/early spring and smack in the middle of summer.

    Channel cats bite all year here in Ontario, Canada, however the best time to fish for them are in the spring & summer.

    The bite is pretty good here right now, but it should only get better around mid Feb to early March.
