Recently spending two days on the water with clients, CatDaddy says the focus was solely on trophy catfish – that’s what they targeted and that’s what they caught. Snagging some nice flatheads on rod and reel, CatDaddy says they used 4 to 6-inch perch to entice the bite. However, the real action came from a line he hung in a tree in the evening, baited with a 4 to 5-inch goldfish. The next morning, they arrived at the tree to find a 40-pound blue catfish on the line. CatDaddy says the belly was packed full and that the fish are really feeding heavily right now so using that to your advantage is key.
With the rest of the fall in mind, CatDaddy says he anticipates another solid three weeks or more of excellent fishing before water temperatures really begin to dip and stifle the action. In the meantime, he notes that he is still fishing the bean hole. Usually the bean hole action has cooled by now, however it’s still going strong, so he is out making the most of it, chumming with fermented soybeans and catching any cat that moves in for the stinky grub.
