Catfish Photos

  1. With the high water and cold temps, Im jonesing for some quality catfishing time, until then, I thought Id start a thread for folks to show off some of there nicer photos of cats. I'd love to see what you caught this year and be sure to throw in the details.

    Heres one for starters, a 10 lb (just under) channel from the GMR, taken in July of 07, on a piece of cut shad, circle hooks and from the Smurf boat. This fish was very head heavy as you can tell from the picure.


  2. heres mine for 07 fishing for crappie on Scioto river Oshay. Hit jig and 3" twister on my light action Berkley Lightning rod 6 pound test mono line. Was 35 pounds.[​IMG]

  8. these are my favorite pics of the year. this fish was caught 3 times in a month and a half on the lower GMR in SW Ohio. the fish had 3 distinctive markings. o hole in the lower jaw, a clipped fin, and a long scar on its head. first to catch it was H20 mellon, then Phil, then Salmonid. Bryan caught it on a full moon period, Phil on the following new moon period two weeks later, then Mark two weeks after that on the full moon once again. after Phil had got it in we had seen that the fish swallowed the bait and its stomach was pulled all the way out. Phil and i both thought the fish wouldnt make it but sure enough he pulled through and was caught again two weeks later! all 3 times the fish was a personal best (30lb+) for the person who caught it. thankfully it was released and next year may be a new "personal best" for someone else!

    That was actually my fish, but someone had to get to the spot 5 minutes before me. Yes folks, thats true. Jack beat me to the spot and as I'm walking down to the area, I see Jack fighting a fish. I literally had to drop my things pick up the net and land this fish. (Landing it bare handed was impossible in this area).

    So, since it would have been mine, you must suffer a 50% weight penality. With the penality, the fish is only 20#. :D

    katfish Cats are where it's at!


    I gotta take Jacks side on this one!

    Even if you got that fish to bite you probably wouldn't land it.
    Plus, if you would carry all the stuff faster you would have been there!:)

    Also it is my opinion that river had more than one fish;)

    This is my favorite, Alex and his first channel at 3 years old and he just graduated from the tigger pole to a good zebco rod and reel combo, He sure was excited and I was also. Just a baby but a thrill none the less, Local pond, bluegill fishing with waxworms = happy kid. S[​IMG]
