The Fish Whisperer demonstrates beyond a reasonable doubt that sewer fishing is very much a real thing, claiming to have caught hundreds of fish this way with videos to back up his claims.
Here is how to effectively catch fish in the sewer:
As the Fish Whisperer explains, you don’t want to fish just any old sewer. You do not want to fish sanitary sewers, but storm sewers or storm drains as they are called. You also want to be sure you are near a body of water such as a lake or pond. And you want to be sure there is water in the sewer.
You want to use a simple rig, 20-pound test line with a #6 circle hook. Keep it simple, with a small enough hook to get a hook set on the fish’s lip. A simple setup with a simple bait like hot dogs could help you land some catfish or other scavenger fish from storm drains.
Next, drop your baited hook down the sewer and wait patiently for a bite. Once you have a fish on pull up your mystery catch. That’s it, the hardest part is finding the correct sewer that holds some fish.
If you can find the right storm drains you might just have a new honey hole all to yourself.
