Dieter Melhorn Fishing

By DIETER MELHORN
If you spend your time in the outdoors fishing, then we have something in common.

After growing my fishing channel on YouTube for the past two years, I hope to expand my audience with a freshwater fishing podcast.

My specialty is targeting and fishing for trophy catfish, but I am also an avid fan of fishing for stripers, crappie, bream and perch.

We talk about everything fishing, from how to catch fish to the science and biology behind the sport.

I would love to hear your comments, ideas, and suggestions

What is the Best Catfish Bait ?
If you fish for catfish, at some point you will ask someone what is the best catfish bait.  Catfish bait is the first question after getting your catfish rod and your catfishing tackle together.  There are many options when it comes to catfish bait and I will discuss them in this podcast.

The Struggles of Fishing During the Catfish Spawn
If you have ever chased catfish in the late spring, especially in June, you have probably asked yourself "why can't I catch a catfish".  Well, the month of June is probably the worst month to catch a catfish no matter where you go in the country,  Catfishing from Mothers Day until July 4th can be tough for monster catfish, but smaller eater sized catfish can still be caught if you are persistent. In this podcast I talk about the catfish spawn, what it means, and let you know that there is light at the end of the tunnel! CLICK HERE for a link to DIETER MELHORN FISHING on YouTube!

Why Do I Fish
Why do you fish?   Fishing is so much more than catching a fish.  Time on the water has special meaning for me, as I am sure it does for many of you that fish.   Part of the attractions is being outside, but the love of fishing runs much deeper.   For me, fishing is more than a weekend pastime, it is a way of life.   This short clip is from a video on my YouTube channel, Dieter Melhorn Fishing.  This is my start in the podcast fishing world, and I am excited to here.
