Why Cattin is better than Bassin

63 posts in this topic

Just because they tend to have a sense of humor (unlike the walleye guys blush)

Top ten reasons why Cattin is better than Bassin:

10. You don’t need $200 sunglasses for Cattin, in fact you don’t need sunglasses at all

9. Bass make good bait for Flats, but not vice versa.

8. Bass guys think wearing visors and having frosted hair is cool.

7. You can chase Cats all year long here

6. Try bouncing a $40,000 Bass boat off snags all year.

5. Mike Iaconelli

4. Bass guys think an 8lb fish is HUGE

3. Cat guys don’t have to learn how to pitch.

2. Cat guys know that the only thing worms are good for is catching bait.

And the number 1 reason why Cattin is better than Bassin

1. Cat guys would NEVER use a Sweet Beaver for bait.

Number 5 is hilarious. I've seen Mike's show a few times on VS. and while he is a great angler, for some reason just listening to him infuriates me. The choice to compare to bass is a good one because a list to compare walleye could get REALLY long. Love the humor in the cat forum....

Don't even start with the walleye guys. We got humor. Most of our fun actually comes from watching those of you catch other types of fish because we know the ONLY reason you're not fishing walleye is because you don't know how to catch 'em. grin

Great post!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So when do you think the twin outboards will hit the tour? I'll go with next year. cool

The Q I have is; Can a Bass fisherman fish if no one is watching?

I have to go now and start loading up my hook set for May 23rd. You just got to see it, Bottle rockits and Roman candles. cool. I'm thinking of adding a Tarzan yell like Buster Crab used.

Nice list Deitz.

But then again, your boat might have a lower unit, and smell like roses, it still says "CAT" on the side of it whistle

That video is awesome. The spectators are what kill me. How can you go to a lake and watch others fish? That sounds like rock bottom to me.

Lower units just add drag and slow you down.

My rebuttal to DTRO's misconceptions:

10) I wear $29 sunglasses when I can find them in my boat.

9) Using gamefish is breaking the law. Bass fishermen are law-abiding citizens.

8) My head would burn to a crisp if I put a visor on even indoors.

7) Pool 2. But when you catch so many fish for 8 straight months, a guy needs a break.

6) I'd be more than happy to bounce someone else's $40000 boat off snags.

5) There are exceptions to every rule.

4) Size is in the eye of beholder.

3) Bass guys don't have to do disgusting things with dead fish.

2) And, we typically don't make snacks out of our bait.

Number one, and the most important:

1) Beaver(s) doesn't generally find us repulsive.

    • ya but its fun! It was nice getting out i am learning alot watching them and being out there gets me more experience since i shot mine this year after being out a total of probably 6 hours for two days
    • Frustrating buggers aren't they!
    • well gobbled like crazy in the morning finally got a hen to come out she came 1 foot away from blind. Then 4 more came behind her 2 toms and 2 hens then the hens went back to the woods and one tom followed the other tom stayed in the open strutting back and forth just out of range then a crane came and he strutted at that then a goose came and he strutted at that they all came out just out of range and cut to our side. They sat there strutting at each other and couldn't get them to come in. One of them came back started walking to our decoys once again just out of range. Uncle tried to get out and go through the dirt bike track he's currently laying on top a jump within 60 yards of them no other options to sneak he chose the wrong way to go should have crawled against the burn... Man these buggers suck going to change blind spots next time know where they roost and see where they strut on the property. should of had a fan decoy out I bet that would have drawn them in
    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
    • Sorry...no excuses BB...the better team did win....4-1. Lucky for the Wild that Statsny was not playing from the start or it woukd have been a sweep. Love the fact that the national hockey gurus are ripping the Wild right now..and read local Souhans article pretty much what I've been saying. http://m.startribune.com/wild-again-not-good-enough-when-it-matters/420167633/ While Chicago is telling it like it is...the Wild are sending the wrong message...and Chicago has 3 cups in recent past....6 overall...pretty obvious which organization is trying to win the cup every year and which one is happy just "selling tickets".
    • Got off to a late start, but was able to get to the lower river at 6 AM. Frost covered the ground, as temps were barely above freezing. I could hear turkeys gobbling as I walked through the field. Once I made it to the wooded river valley, the sound of grouse drumming echoed through the woods. Eagles and ospreys continually flew over my head throughout he morning. The water was mabye a couple inches high, and somewhat cloudy, but was noticeably clearing as the morning progressed. 8 o'clock seemed to be the magic hour, as that's when I caught most of my 13 brown trout. Biggest was 16 inches, and had a few swipes from some dandies as well. Beautiful morning to be on the river!
    • So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# ...here is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.   1.  Terminator frog 2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof 3.  Spro frog (ok) 4.  KVD frog  (took some work) 5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)   These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!    
    • Running and gunning!   Congrats!
