Nov 7th. I got to my first fishing spot on the river at 07:45.
There was some light fog and a little current on the river as I
dropped my anchor. Fished this spot just kept getting hard
bites, but never got one hooked. I then started to check out
other spots that produced fish in the past. The third place by
the bridge pier; turned the trick. 10 o'clock sharp boated my
first fish of the day. It was a nice channel cat that weighed in
at 5.6 pounds. This fish liked the small skipjack that was on
the hook. A nice blue cat took off at 10:25, when in the boat
measured out at 28 inches, 9.5 pounds. This fish like the chunk
of rare seasoned steak that I had as bait.
I was running a little low on bait so headed up river to catch
some fresh Shad. The fog was still on the water at that spot so
it made locating the bait difficult. I threw my net several
times and got only a few Shad for my efforts. Took what I
caught, and headed back to my first spot of the day.
I got my boat and lines out at 11:30. 11:50 boated my one of my
largest channel cats of theyear .This fish topped out at 10.9
pounds and 29 inches long. This fish also liked the chunk of raw
steak. From then on I hooked a fish just a soon as I got fresh
bait in the river. One time I had 2 nice channel cats and a 7
pound carp all in the bottom of my small boat at the same time.
I had problems with taking a self timed photo of the fish. Just
about time for the camera to take the picture the camera fell
over or the fish flopped the wrong way. Whenever the reel took
off, I just had to put the fish back down to reel in the new
fish. I did get the photos of the cats but just weighed the
carp. Once that was done I released them back to the river. The
cat were caught on cut up Shad, the carp also liked the raw
steak. The action stopped dead after I pulled in the carp so I
headed for the last stop of the day.
I went back to the bridge pier for it was on the way back to
the ramp. The wind was blowing up river and caused the boat to
rock a good deal. As I was winding in my lines for the day I
felt a fish. A small flathead had swallowed a cut up shad. This
cat was so small he could not really do more than just cause a
tap on the rod tip. The fish measured 17.5 inches and only 2.5
When I headed home felt good to have such a great day of
CATCHING fish. I caught all three types of catsfish, plus a nice
carp. The largest number of fish caught on a trip this year 8.
Over all weight of around 63 pounds tops in that department as
well. Yes this was my BEST day of fishing this year.
