Anyone having any luck finding any big cats? Where do they seem to be hanging out the most?

:)The Bay Is giving up good amounts a nice nice catfish. Went up to the Bay onn Thursday 7/9/2009 with my parents since we had not been out fishing together since last year sometime. We hit the west side of the old Bayview bridge. We started out around the middle of the area that they designated for fishing then at around 11:30am we moved to the point where the channel runs throught and the bite was on. Within the first thirty minutes of sittting i had three nice channel cats that from 19 to 23 inches. By the end of the trip we had a total of around 30 channel cats that. Raw shrimp was the bait of choice for the feline fish. we left once the wind picked up and you could no longer tell if you were getting a bite or if the wind was the stripping your bait off the hook. Hope this helps. Good luck to all that ventuire up that way. Watc h your rtods as i almost lost mine on a couple of occasions.

That's down cr268 from Vickery. Take that all the way down to cr331 and make a left. The concrete dock is a few lots down on he right. I know the folks that use to own it as I grew up down there. At the end of 331 there was a stone road that S-curved along the bay bank. That's where our house was until Ohio Power bought us out in 1968. Man you guys brought back some memories. Huck Finn ain't got noth'en on me! (huge grin)

Here is a picture of a 27 lb. Flathead catfish caught on a recent survey of the sandusky river near fremont. Picture was in the Fremont News- Messenger about a week ago... that would be a fun one to catch..

Kinda makes you wonder where this guy came from though, because the only two rivers that are supposed to have flats in it are the Maumee and Huron. Maybe this guy took a little trip out into lake erie and came up the Sandusky.:D
