cats

6 posts in this topic

I'm not looking for anything very specific, but am looking for a few places to try for cats. I'll be fishing with 2 others and don't think they have much experience fishing cats, so I'm looking for a place that has some numbers, yet a few decent sized thrown in for good measure. Like I said, nothing too specific, just a general idea of where to go. If you want, shoot me an e-mail at timothylarry@yahoo.com if you're not comfortable posting here. Thanks in advance.

might want to post this in the catfish forum. I'd be willing to bet you could get all kinds of help over there those guys seem to really know their stuff.

North of stillwater or Pool 2 of the Mississippi.

Use suckers or stink baits. They might be shallow right now. That is where we are finding them. Good luck.

BTW look for current changes next to or by deep holes. If that doesn't work try shallower.

if you want large cats and good number of them go to stillwater channel where the powerplant outlet is. I've had lots of sucess there this summer. Try right after dark. Most of the fish I've caught were on crawlers and cut bait.

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
