    Any tips for catching these locations, time of day, weather ive tried the usual baits for them. I just seem to catch channels,eels and zander guess im just unlucky or not in the right location.

    TIA

    I've had the best luck Fishing from the shore in both the mid map points; where the rivers converge. Deadbaits will do the trick, morning, sunrise or night should work equally well. There are some really big catfish at both these spots. Also will find some of the biggest Carp there as well.

    Also, I've found most of the catfish biting in those locations no more than 5-8 meters off either side of the shoreline. Happy hunting!

    Yeah, & even though I kid about no knowledge of real fishing might be a benefit in this game. Dovetail has done pretty good in modeling fish behavior, activity, diet, etc. Its not perfect but, pretty accurate to a degree. Catfish are bottom feeders, they will & have been caught on most anything under the sun. Irl, it seems the stinkier, the worst tasting, crap other fish wouldn't dare touch; that's what the catfish will love

    Good to hear
    Like an old saying I like says; If it's stupid but it works....It ain't stupid! Part of the fun in game & Irl fishing is trying things out to see what works. Finding new spots, trying new bait & gear setups; what catches what, where & when? It's a big part of what draws & keeps us OCD types to Fishing & fishing games in the first place
    Happy hunting!
