bigger catfish
« on: January 16, 2007, 01:23:58 PM »
hey  there is  a spot on the grand river that gets about 10 to 15 foot deep for about 3/4 of a mile with stumps and strong flowing current under cut banks and several islands , do you think it would be better to fish on the ends where it gets shallow with minnows and pole after dark or fish the hole itself.
you can run but you will only leave a blood trail

Hit the hole with some nice rancid stink bait or chicken livers. O0

I see you're playing stupid again...  looks like you're winning too.

I would start at the front of the hole, then hit the tail of it. Both will hold a good amount of cats, but only the good eatin sized. The big boys will be in the deepest, darkest, most tangled parts of it. So, which will it be... Food or trophy? O0

I like to fight the big ones on rod and reel 10 pound test is a real fight.The eater's are good to eat and fight but there is nothing like a 35 or 40 pounder on rod and reel.

  O0  O0  O0 I like to fish the upstream end of the hole first, letting the bait drift over the dropoff. Depending on the setup and weather, water temp, etc, the entire hole sounds like a real honey spot. I like to fish those places with a flathead setup and float the bait with a large bobber, too.
Those big cats will move upstream into the shallow water at night, so that's also a good place to fish at night, around the upstream end of the hole.
You are fishing from a boat, I assume.
I usually have one or both poles set for flatheads, using live or cut bait. Having another fishing pal along helps. You and your partner can test the different baits and discover what's biting quicker than one guy can. It's also a lot safer having a fishing pard along, especially while night fishing.

It takes patience to break a good hound. Ya gotta be persistent and it helps to be a lil smarter then the dog.

A week.  >:( Three of us went camping. That first day after setting up the tent and camp, they left in the boat to get food supplies. I stayed behind to mind the camp. They are still alive, only because I let them live.  :twisted:
