Catfish are hitting amazing post spawn at oshay. Was out from 7-9 at my spot from shore and had 15-20 good runs off of fresh shad from shore. Hooked into fish mostly around 5lbs as the one shown below but had one PB flathead probably around 15-20lbs get off at shore
while trying to snap a pic. Biggest catfish I've ever had on the line. Question is how you handle large catfish, grab then by the mouth or the back behind the spine?? I've never had to question this before as This was my first shovel head.
