mississippi river cats in monticello area..?

10 posts in this topic

KC16 Yes grin

For one they are always biting in that area. For two the local bait store stating the 15-20lbers channels are biting pretty good with a report of a 53lb being caught laugh They also said river bugs are the hot ticket right now wink. Ah good times! I had to give them a call and find out my self.

Welcome to FM and the Cat Forum also. Very cool you signed up.

For three what kind of question is this for your first one in the cat forum? I would be giving you a call to find this out.

Sorry you did not bang any big ones on the red last weekend. When you go to Lockport they should be going good by then.

twostroke it is an inside joke (kind of) grin.

A local bait store employee some how got their wires crossed on reports (I assume) and was reporting some interesting info on the current channel cat bite upon the Mississippi in Montiville grin

I think the issue has since been corrected but one of the things being reported was a 53lb channel being caught in down town Monticello.

Either someone was playing a joke on a unknowing (noncatfishing and young) employee, was telling some major fish tails at the bait counter or reports from catfish being caught down in the cities or Mankato where construed as being caught in Monticello.

I got down wind of this a week or two back, but it did not sink in, then kittycatcher16 called me about it, and since then another buddy from Big Lake informed me of hearing this also. So I had to call and sure enough I was told the same thing grin.

Just a miss understanding is what I figure but pretty funny grin.
