As many of you know, I am new to catfishing. I have done quite a bit of trout fishing and if the bait doesnt look right and feel right then they usually leave it alone. Are catfish finiky like this at all? I usually fish by dropping my line straight down then adjusting to the depth the fish are. Saturday I had alot of strikes but caught only two. The two I did catch were on the pole that had a little less weight on it. I was thinking of using only a small amount of wieght next time, my bait is usually heavy enough to get the line down anyway. What are your thoughts on how much wieght to use if not fishing on the bottom?
