I'm fairly new to catfish fishing (most of my time on the lakes is spent bowfishing) & I started running a few jugs during the summer.
I'd really like to start targeting cats on a more regular basis, both with jugs & rod & line.
Is there an 'off' season & a 'best' season for cats, or is this something I can do year round with a reasonable expectation of success?

Could anyone possibly give me any hints, tips or pointers with baits & tactics etc?

I actually bought a second boat this fall, specifically to run as a cat boat & I'd really like to get it wet!
Wooden bows, Lever actions & Blackpowder. All a body needs!
