Catfish are quite prominent amongst fishermen. As they are omnivores (meaning they eat a selection of food), they could be caught with a selection of bait. That includes frogs, shad, minnows, nightcrawlers, crickets, bullheads, fools and also sunfish. Not all catfish are captured with rod-and-reel. Others are trapped with slat traps, bank lines, trotlines, or juglines. Some traps can catch as many as one hundred fish a day.
Catfish have the ability to interact with each other. There are different chemicals produced for means of interaction or recognition by participants of the same varieties. It also produces audios for interaction.
