Does anyone regulary fish under railroad bridges? I went to one this evening in Middletown that I checked out after my morning fishing and thought it would be a perfect spot for this evening. At first glance, I would have bet my life that there would be loads of cats around these huge bridge pillars. I was there for about 2 hours fishing with cut shad, and not so much as a run. I couldn't believe it. The water was moving pretty fast. While I was there, three trains went overhead. My question is, do catfish tend to avoid these railroad bridges due to the noise? I read a post earlier that suggested that catfish freak out at anything out of the ordinary, even lightning and thunder. My other possible problem may have been my bait. I took the same container of frozen shad with me twice, and didn't use it so I took home and re-froze it. Is this bad?? Oh yea, my morning outing on the GMR in Middletown yielded several cats, all were in the 3-5 lb range. Not huge, but they put up a pretty good fight. Any help on the questions above, would be greatly appreciated. -Catslammer out.
