I HAVE A COUPLE OF THE ROUND WIRE CATFISH TRAPS WITH THE NETTING ON THEM AND WAS WONDERING IF THERE IS A CERTAIN TIME OF YEAR THAT THEY WORK BEST? ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED.

I've got the same setup. I'm sure the spring and fall would be best but you should be able to catch catfish in a baited trap year round.

I have put them out in Old River and False River and baited with the catfish cheese and have not caught a fish yet, that's the reason I'm asking.

Sorry coon dog. Maybe a place w a little current helps make a scent trail. Stinky cheese shoulda done the job. Ive got no good answer for you. I do know that around oct and again in the spring the catfish are active in shallow water in the lake verret area. Colder winter they are in the deep channels. On a warmer winter day they move shallower to feed. Good luck.
