The “big three” catfish species basics and how to identify them. 
Catfishing tips, techniques and information from professional catfish guides anglers.
Flathead catfish are virtually inactive during the winter and the warm spring waters puts them in a feeding frenzy not only adding back the lost Winter weight but also getting ready for spawn.
According to Catfish Guide Editor In Chief Doug Stange, in clear water, vision is an important part of a cat’s feeding strategy. In most environments, their hearing and lateral line senses also are used to find prey. But in turbid rivers, where visibility is limited and rushing water somewhat distorts the transmission of sound waves, catfish rely heavily on smell and taste to locate food. The blood and oils from a fresh piece of cutbait allow cats to easily home in on the bait.
The term catfishing was inspired by the 2010 documentary "Catfish."
Guy 1: "You think she's catfishing?!"
The Otocinclus Catfish is a great addition to a peaceful planted tank and a small school of them can form a great algae cleanup crew. Otocinclus Catfish like to hang out under and on plant leaves as well as sucking on the tank glass. However, Otocinclus Catfish can be a little reclusive at times and providing places to hide will help make them feel secure. Because they can be quite shy it's a good idea to avoid keeping them with overly aggressive tank mates or other fish large enough to eat them.So we know the channel cat is a willing sort, too, a fish that likes to bite, therefore its loyal following from anglers of all ages and angling skills. Somewhere, four seasons long, channel cats are biting. At night and during the day—more so than catfish like the flathead and white cat. In deep water and shallow, particularly along current edges, and even in open water in reservoirs and ponds.Ideally, you should quarantine your Otocinclus Catfish before introducing them to your main tank so that you can monitor them for disease and also provide them with optimal water conditions and no competition from other tank mates for fish food. They may be stressed from transport when you buy them from your pet shop and quarantining them will help settle them down.Holes, you see, are the home of catfish in rivers. A snag—cover—in conjunction with a hole makes the best home. The better the home, the more likely that catfish will be present—lots of them and perhaps a monster or two, or more. But to find the best homes, it’s necessary to move—again, to cover lots of water in order to be able to make the right judgment about which areas are best, the better if the areas are far removed from the reaches of other anglers. Just as The Boys said.
