Catfish spawn.

Recommended Posts

Looks like the channel catfish are pretty much done with spawn, been catching a lot of them on the rivers Big River Mermac River and the Old Miss, Ive been using cut bait as well minows and small sunfish. Ive been running limb lines trot lines jug lines and a couple tight lines. Time to start to fill the freezer for the winter. Bass are also avail in the mourn and eve on small crank baits and spinner baits.

What part of the muddy miss are you finding cats? We were going to fish the mississippi a couple weeks ago...but decided against it. Are you catching the bass on the mississippi too?

Sorry Ive only been bass fishing on Big River... As for miss Ive been fishing by lock dam 25 I normally launch are fish around cuivre river/launch its a real short ride down to miss from there. I really just target catfish. Ive been doing some bass fishing with friends who only like to fish 4 bass. If you fish the Miss be careful Ive seen on the news 2 diff people died over the weekend on the Miss.

I hear ya loud and clear....the Miss nothing to mess around with!

Where do you do your catfishing? I was thinking about going out in front of the arch......but being a newbie to that area....I'm a little hesitant because of the initimidation factor.

Will do!

I'm tired of bowhunting in Texas...I know that. Believe none of what you see on tv about texas and deer. I'm stuck to public hunting...which is fine...have yet to shoot a deer going on year 7. It will happen this year...but then again that's what I've thought the previous 6 years. lol

    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.
