After the spawn?

5 posts in this topic

With the water level dropping and the hotter water will the cat fish go to the deeper holes After the spawn?

mid season low water or late season low water?

Do they still come to around the same area to feed?

Good question, I would like to know as well.

I’ve felt pretty confident this year with the prespawn, but the confidence has dropped in the past week as I see less fish and the spawn progresses.

I can say this though. In years past I’ve seen a significant number of postspawn Flats caught on cutbait and in snags. wink

Over the weekend we averaged 3-4 fish per night and I think that is probably a bit more typical of what you might expect postspawn.

I have a feeling that this fish still had a few eggs in her smile

Up on the Miss. North, with the water dropping, end of spawn and post spawn the channels school up in the deeper holes.

I fish fresh or frozen cut baits just up from the hole, either side of the hole and down stream from the hole. Some of these spots have channels stacked to the hill. In the next week, we will start to hit some of these spots and many channels a night is not uncommon.

    • I was down in NW Iowa this past week.  All kinds of mourning doves there. Soybean and corn harvest is starting;  so spilled grain in the field may hold them there awhile. 
    • Since there has been a great deal of discussion about Black Lives Matter and a variety shootings across the country I thought it might be timely to point out that this s Nat. Hispanic Heritage Month (from Sept.15-Oct.15) first proclaimed , I think,   by LBJ. The aim is to highlight some of the contributions made to this country by Hispanic's and also the independence of several Latino  countries. So far,   from what I've seen, there have been no wild demonstrations and no property damage; have not seen any reports of police having to intervene in any festivals. I have long felt that we do not credit the Hispanics in our midst with the attention due them. Like all other races I've met and dealt with, there have been many good solid hard working citizens and a few real throw backs. Around here we celebrate the good ones. Something to give at least a moments thought to fellas.
    • 13th season at MN Duck Camp for this old girl. Her daughter carries the workload now.
    • We are going to get one of the females out of this litter  
    • Where's the pic's? Male or female. Mine is British, 62 lb male and full of energy. 
    • Yes still like that setup for adding smoke. I decided to try some trays instead of hanging. Last weekends Polish would untwist which I did not care for and a few broke the skins while trying to hang.   Side note the Polish patty's from the left over that could not be pushed thru were great on the grill. Might have to leave some in bulk form on purpose next time.
    • I noticed that Northern carries the Worksharp and extra belts. Cost was $79.99
    • Well, it's comforting to know the duopoly doesn't have a complete lock on everything, anyway.   "Johnson says if he was included in the debates, he would win if he just "bit his tongue" http://www.marketwatch.com/story/gary-johnson-bites-tongue-to-demonstrate-how-debate-slot-would-aid-his-presidential-bid-2016-09-23?siteid=rss&rss=1
    • You could substitute Trump's name in that statement if you support Trump. The best policy here is to "Just say no to A-holes"... (This would also make a great bumper sticker for the Johnson campaign.)
