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.

    • It has either a nickle or chrome plating, I am thinking it is probably nickle.

    • Team Lodge Extreme is a brand that makes what you're looking for and has for a few years now. I think Big Bite also builds one with that functionality and purpose in mind as well. Both are very nice houses.
    • I wanted to share my recent find, I was searching the items on a local online auction and saw what I thought was a Pimple (or Pimpl) spear (it was only labeled as a stainless spear). I stopped by the auction house to take better pictures and compare it to others and I was convinced it was a Pimple, I even had a spear collector I know agree that it was a Pimple. I started bidding on it at the very end of the auction and unfortunately someone else also knew what it was since I found myself in an intense bidding war with one other bidder. We battled back and forth for what seemed like forever, it almost got a little personal and just when i told myself I'd only place one more bid the other person stopped bidding. I was the winner of the spear at $340 (I've heard of other selling for $600 on auction)   When I went to pick up the spear I was given a dumbfounded look and asked "why did you spend so much on this spear???" I explained the history of the spear and the spear maker who was born in the 1860's or 70's depending on where you read the history and immigrated here from Austria.  While I was explaining this a group of people gathered around to listen to the story and they had no clue what they had and were amazed the small spear was that old and that desirable.    It will be a family heirloom that will be passed down in my family for generations to come. Just to even hold this piece of history is awesome.
