Catfish — interesting-looking fish. Body — long, mustache different face: two long, four short, ventral fins fused into one and reach the tail, grow together with him, a huge head compared to body, mouth is full of very small and very sharp teeth, small eyes, scales absent. Such is the Scarecrow. But there are a very large specimen can weigh up to 300 pounds and length up to 5 meters.
Catfish feeds on other fish, frogs and their larvae, food scraps, left by the man and falling into the pond, swallow crustaceans and small mollusks, and occasionally attack small waterfowl. Som lives in the pits, whirlpools, hollows, bays and the mouths of small rivers. Loves shallow pebbles to cleanse from parasites and leeches, which gets rid of that noisy when rubbing against rocks.
The best time for catching catfish, the summer months — June, July and August. Time of day for fishing — the beginning of dawn to sunrise.
To catch catfish better on the ground and on special devices that mimic and reproduce natural sounds of croaking frogs. A ground rod is better to use larger hooks and stronger line so as not to miss a fine specimen of predatory whiskers!
