Catfish Fishing Gear & Accessories

Best Catfishing Gear!

by Keith Sutton   |  May 24th, 2012 6

“The catfish is a plenty good enough fish for anybody…”

Mark Twain wrote that in 1883 when catfish probably were at the peak of popularity. In fact, prior to the 1960s largemouth-bass-fishing boom, Americans always considered catfish highly desirable.

That changed when bass tournaments became the rage. Catfish and catfish anglers suddenly became nonentities in fishing. Tackle manufacturers ignored the fish.

All the while, however, Americans continued catfishing. And recently, the fishing-tackle industry has reexamined the catfish’s admirable qualities and realized it made no sense to ignore millions of anglers who pursue these abundant, good-eating sportfish. As a result, more catfishing gear has become available: tough rods and reels, unique baits, special hooks, bobbers and line, plus many accessories. Among recently introduced items are these.
