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.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
