    Default Blue cats 2/18/17

    I'll make this one short and sweet.

    I got into'em this morning. Brought home 7 fish all ranging from 21"-28". The 28" weighed in at 10lbs. I left a happy man!

    Nice going Steve. I also caught a few representatives of the catfish family yesterday, but my catch was far smaller, in skinny water, and closer to home. I found thousands of schooling brown bullheads in 12"-18" of water. I used a jighead and 3" Fat Sam mullet (that lure will catch anything) to bring in five small bullheads over a 15-min period. All of my fish were returned to swim again.

    Nice work, John! I catch them in the mid to upper Severn quite frequently when I'm out looking for perch and pickerel. I can't believe they went for such a big bait and a swim bait at that. 🍻👍

    Those are the "eaters" I like to catch...the ten pounder is pretty close to my upper limit of a 30 inch fish- anything over 30 goes back in the water...yeah, I know they are invasive and DNR wants them killed, but I have a real problem just killing something I am not going to eat...snakeheads are different- I eat alll of them I catch...

    I hear ya, Ron. I cleaned every fish and gave half of the filets away to friends and family. Me and my family had a nice catfish dinner last night and the rest of the filets are sitting in my freezer waiting to be fried.
