These little cats shouldn't be dismissed when it comes to the action they provide on the water based on their size, they are actually little torpedoes, CatDaddy says. They put up a great fight and they also make for great eating. You can't beat these small blue cats, he says. When most people think about fishing for blue catfish they associate it with landing 70+ pound monsters. Most anglers really do want to catch whoppers, CatDaddy says. However, the problem with that mindset is that you don't catch whoppers every day, unless you go to Burger King.
Hitting up these brush piles around bridge pilings, CatDaddy says he is throwing june bugs, catalpa worms, and big grasshoppers. The water isn't deep, but there is a constant current so he uses that current to his advantage in creating a natural presentation by throwing the bait out and then letting the current swing it back around to the brush pile where the catfish are hitting it like a freight train.
Listen in as CatDaddy talks about how to land small, table winning catfish. Plus he'll discuss how seasonal temperature swings impact catfish activity and how his years of experience as a guide have helped him zero in on hot spots for great fishing action year-round.
