    Will big cats take your bait fast or slow?

    There is no rule on how fast a fish will bite. And neither does the size of the fish really have a corralation with how fast one will bite.

    Now since statistically there are fewer fish as you go bigger, you could say that you are more likely to get a small fish to bite. Which is why even the best fishermen will come out with a larger portion of smaller fish, and a few big ones.

    Welcome to the Club Brother!!, As For your question. water temperature plays a big role in how fish react to certain baits. But if they're hungry you'll know it.

    Welcome to the BOC. I fish a lot of small rivers. It seems to me that if the river is up about 2 -3 feet and muddy they seem to bite harder and you can catch bigger fish, and the Gars don't bother you as much. Good luck

    Welcome to the BOC Mike. I think that cats have different temperments just like other animals. I like the mean ones myself, lol. I've had both types of bites/runs in all water temps and times of the year.

    Welcome to the BOC and I have to say water temp has to do alot with how a fish will hit. Most of the big flatheads I catch dont really hit to hard though theres just a steady tug and they try to pull the pole in the water. Now if Im fishing for channels for some reason at the lake and sit my pole the same way they hit it so hard they have taken a pole or two. I went channel fishin about a month ago and all the channels hit extremely hard. To answer your question I think it has to do alot with the type of catfish also.

    Welcome to the BOC. It jsut depends, but ion my experience the big ones tend to hit bait hard and really bend the rod really well.

    From all the times that I have been fishing. Blues in the winter have taken my bait fast. And during the summer channles have taken the bait fast. But that was also with live 3"-4" bluegill.
