    I was raised to believe that spring is best but I am always open to finding out that the way I was taught may have not always been true.

    I like to fish both spring and Fall. In winter I try to catch the skips at the Hot water outlet.

    I really enjoy all times of the year. There are some favorite times like at night. Then there is the spring feeding an those great fall free for all.

    Late fall / winter and early spring are my favorite times. We seem to catch our bigger fish in late December / January and Febuary.

    I guess the best thing about catfishing is that you can have success year round, if you know where to fish, how deep to fish, and the specifics of your waters.

    Fishing has been my prozac for some time now...LOL:tounge_out:
    So the best time is in the heat of the summer when my business is busy...I just need at fix at that point....To calm them nerves...ROFL
    seriously though, Early spring til DH starts hunting season. Then I am a deer widow and seems I end up having a full plate of to do's then. I don't mind the heat, never has bothered me but the cold, now Nope Not me...
    Since I couldn't ever Shoot any furbaby Hunting is out for me...
    So When the weather is real cold Sometimes I tend act like a bear...ROFL

    Fall and winter for me, although winter doesnt agree with me the older I get, but that to me is the best time to catch the bigguns. Summer I night fish. OK, all year round :smile2::smile2:

    Well Robert, anytime you get a chance to go is the best time. But seriously, like the rest of us on here, spring and fall. I love the fall especially the cool nights and cold mornings of October and November when those fingers get numb.
