OUT-ChannelCatfishFishing for channel cats in the summertime 

From the DNR

These warm months can be the perfect time to target channel catfish throughout Michigan. Found nearly statewide, channel cats inhabit both lakes and streams.This species is typically pursued by anglers using live, dead or cut bait, though anglers have long used all manner of bait—cheese, shrimp, liver, spawn—or commercially prepared blood or scent baits. Though occasionally taken on artificial lures by anglers pursuing other species, channel cats are traditionally fished with bait presented on the bottom.
A good tip to remember is channel catfish will fight once they’re hooked. Consider using at least 12-pound test to ensure your line is tough enough to handle their strength.
