    Thumbs up Mattawoman Creek Thursday

    I am figuring on launching tomorrow morning at Slavins launch (Indian Head) around 8:15- 8:30 fishing for catfish if anyone is suffering from chronic cabin fever...I’ve got the cure- hoping for some “eaters” to take home but we usually get some big girls mixed in...anchorup is a must so if you plan on coming, bring an anchor...

    Good luck! I was shore fishing from Ft. Washington just north of Mattawoman last weekend for cats. A couple thumps but I'm still learning the proper hookup technique for cats/circle hooks and ended up missing them. Heading out again from the yak on Saturday for a redemption journey. Are you using cutbait? And if so, what's the best way to go about getting it this time of year? I'm based in Baltimore City and asked Tochterman's but he said they don't carry cutbait until April. I'd love to get some shad or herring if possible, or really any oily fish.

    Things from the River (look them up on Facebook)...in Benedict has fresh mud shad and frozen Alwife for sale...with circle hooks I usually leave the rod in the holder until the drag is running...and one of the outfits I have rigged up is the Diawa BG 2500/Lews Speed Stick- want to put it through the wringer for a real world test- figure a 20# or so bluecatfish will give me an idea of how this outfit is going to perform...taking my Revo NaCl Toro winch/St. Croix Avid rod- two outfits as my normal catfish tackle...

    Good luck Ron. Anxious to hear your report. You're welcome to meet Matt and I at Marshall hall Saturday. We are going but will change plans if the snow is forecasted earlier

    That's an awesome setup Ron...Like Pat said I'm interested to hear your report. And thanks for the info! I definitely feel like going into this weekend I have a much better idea of how to handle a strong catfish bite. Definitely join us if you want!

    If I'm ever going cat fishing or anywhere cut bait is needed I always make a stop into one of the Asian markets in Catonsville, like Lotte and H-Mart. They have a large selection of fresh fish most of them local species some exotic. They also usually have fresh shrimp, clams, squid and all sorts of other stinky stuff that the cats love.
    Their prices are great and usually cheaper than the bait shops.

    Thanks Jengles, that's perfect info. I'll swing by Lotte tomorrow after work for some local stuff. I appreciate it.

    Only two “eaters” today...mostly big fish..one 38 inch, 40 inch and a 42 inch...one of the “eaters” was about 10-12 pounds...right at my upper limit...made a nice bag of filets...eagles, hawks and buzzards are fighting over the carcasses and the left over bait...
