Catfish Videos: 8 Must-See Clips

Game and Fish readers have shown a strong interest in catfish fishing.

It's why articles, videos and photos on catfish are among our most popular content.

We figured now was a great time to enter the Outdoors Sportsman Group YouTube video vault and pull out some choice cuts on the subject — from noodling, to bait rigs, to lots of rod-bending.

With the help of our OSG family members, we put together the video log of catfish fishing videos that may show you something you've never seen before, or give you a reason to learn more.
