A WONDERFUL MORNING OF CATFISHING It was a nice and cool as I
headed my boat up river. I did not get any shad with my net so
had to use my various back up baits. I got my lines in the water
at 07:17, at 07:17 had a strong
bite on the regular shrimp! That was a very good sign; this was
going to be a fun morning.07:32 hooked into the first fish of the
day a 6 pound carp. It hit a chunk of seasoned roast beef. That
fish just took off and made the clicker sing. 08:00 a decent size
channel cat was hook, as I reached down for the net the hook came
free. This fish hit the vanilla soaked shrimp. Another channel
cat was hooked and boat at 08:30, it was caught on beef liver.
This fish was 5.5 pounds and 24 inches long.
I was getting bites on about every cast, with two rods out, I was
a busy guy. Once I even had to set one rod down that had a bite
to pick up the other rod that had a bite. Another carp liked the
beef chunk and was boated at 08:50, this one was 7 pounds. Then
at 09:05 I pulled in a 6.9 pound channel cat. Beef liver was
turned the trick for that fish. The next catfish was 4.7 pounds
also like the beef liver. Then I caught 2 small channel cats of
1.8 pounds each on vanilla soaked shrimp. The last carp of the
day was boated at 11:00; this one was 7.8 pounds and 25 inches
long. He also liked the vanilla shrimp. Using my last piece of
vanilla shrimp; hooked the biggest channel cat of the day. This
monster topped out at 11.9 pounds and 29.5 inches long. Around
this part of the Ohio a channel cat over 10 pounds is special.
I was out of bait and the boat traffic was rocking my boat all
over so I packed it in for the day. This was by far the beat
fishing trip of this season. This was especially rewarding since
my brother and I spent 12 hours on the river the other night and
had only ONE bite for the effort. Hope the fish keep up the
action when I return to that spot. Tight lines to all.
