Hello, Due to a schedule change at my job,it looks like I will have some time to do some fishing this year. I haven't been very often in the last fifteen years due to an overloaded schedule. My first love is catfish, however I have not been very successful at it in my later years. I used to catch some when I was younger. Maybe I was just lucky! Anyway I need some advise. How soon can I expect the catfish to start biting on Barkley and Kenlake this year and what bait should I use? Has anyone ever fished the tributaries for cats, such as Little River or Muddy Forks? If so,what time of year is best for the rivers? One last question-Is there a certain time of year that I should switch to night fishing as opposed to morning or afternoon fishing? Thank you so much for your time and I look forward to your replies!
