Most catfish anglers search for good places to fish that is out of the wind however some great catfish can be caught in the rough wind. Boat control plays an important part of fishing in windy conditions.
Drift fishing is the best technique for catching catfish in windy conditions.
Once you decide where you want to start your drift, just throw your baited rig over the side of your boat at different depths of main line and place your rod in your Monster rod holders and begin to drift . The idea here is to (drift with the wind), draggin your baits just above the contour of the bottom or (pull your baits) over the contour using your trolling motor. Although drifting with the wind will produce catfish, I prefer to control my (pull/drift) and target more precise contour structure, such as humps and ledges. Draggin your baits through a more likely lair will pay off more times than not, increasing your chances for a trophy catfish.
