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.

    • Hard not to look in the mirror and admit our meddling all over the world over the past 60 years has brought us nothing but trouble. You can shift blame to some radical religion if you want, plenty of blame there too but why force ourselves to step on that hornets nest in the first place when we didn't have to. But hey we are masters of destabilizing and regime changes and I don't think that is an accident. You can blame some religion if you want but I doubt Christians or you or I would be any different had some other country toppled our government and took over our country. Of course it is always in the name of peace and freedom, or at least that is what plays on the news.
    • https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/19/us/politics/donald-trump-ukraine-russia.html   To summarize for those too lazy to read the article:   A Putin-backed Ukranian lawmaker, a convicted mobster that's friends with Donald Trump, and his Russian-linked personal lawyer (who's being investigated for, guess what, his links to Russia) came to Michael Flynn (fired for lying about his contacts with Russia) with a plan that would essentially gift (the illegally annexed sovereign Ukrainian territory of) Crimea to Russia, and lift all related sanctions.
    • Spent about 4hrs there today with my family and had a great time. My twin 6yr olds had a blast and came home with lots of freebies.   im not a wine and dine hunting lodge guy so many booths didn't appeal to me. But lots of good dog stuff and conservation talk.   i pet and scratched more dogs behind the  ear today than I have in my entire life. Looking forward to Sioux Falls hosting it next year.
