    Has anyone had any luck catfishing on the Tusc. River. Me and my buddies have been going out every couple of nights and havent been catching to many. We've been using mostly chicken liver and creek chubs. Anyone got any tips.

    6 or 7 lb channels are not somethig to just laugh at. If you catch a couple that size at the tourney, I would bet you will win! I would love to get into some decent ones this time of year!

    Yeah really, anywere in the tusc. with a boat like that could be possible. Down here by newcomerstown and coshocton i know theres alot of good spots to drop a boat or pick'er up. Last year i took the boat out on the tusc and did some small mouth fishing and caught some decent ones.

    The sign-up/weigh-in are in the parking lot next to the Hollywood Video store by New Towne Mall in New Phila.
     
  12. You better be careful with a boat of that type on the Tusc. There are some rough areas on the river. There's a safe area above the boat ramp in Dover.
    Are you planning on putting in and taking out at the same spot or 2 different spots?

    We went out to the tusc. this evening and the water is really high still. We still caught 3 though. Hopefully the water goes down by the tourney on sat.

    Good points I was not thinking of the action! I would be extremely careful in the small of a boat! I would also wait till the water goes down a bit.



    I am sure it will be down from what it is now troutfingers.......looks like you will do better than me since my first and only trip cattin this year resulted in nothing. :(
     
  15. I would be fishing for smallies.I'd like to take my father this spring or summer and would like to go a few miles between vehicles.I always love to fish Beaver creek but most of it is too shallow for floating unless you're in a tube.

    I dont know Rockbass we've been out every couple of days and only been catching a few here and there. I hope i do good at the tourney. Hopefully theres a good showing so theres a lot of competition. I always like the challenge. Plus with that many people theres bound to be a big fish. I cant wait!

    A big fish for a cat tourney around here is usually 10-14 lbs..channel cats anyway. if you catch a channel over 10 lbs in our area, that seems to be a decent channel. I would have to say that I doubt many fish will be turned in troutfingers.......I know I did not do good the other night. Bryan has not been out and another guy that fishes with Bryan has not been out yet. I think you must just have a good secret hole.

    you must have a secret spot somewhere, i havent heard of anyone catching any catfish yet !! :rolleyes: im gonna give it a try though !! 6 lbs around here is a good size cat, when you start pushing 10 lbs thats a BIG FISH anything over 10 lbs is a trophy to me !! :eek:
