Default Catfish

Well the weather hasn't been the best but we have still managed to land some nice kitties. Red River channel cats, been eating my shrimp so far and when the goldeye move in I will switch to cut-bait. 5/0 octopus hooks, 3-4oz lead wgt and an 18" lead seems to be working.

Sorry soo many posts to get the pics in but I figured its a nice pictoral history of my w/end. The last 3 pics are of one fish. It stole my rod........ I had to dive into the river B4 it went to "Davey Jones' locker", Just got it in time and this is what I get in return. A nice 34" ch cat, I would sayabout 16-18lbs or so. What do you guys think? Funny thing was that I snagged into someone elses pickeral rig that had 2 saugers on...... not in good health. But the important thing was that 1)I got my rod back
2)I got the fish
3)I still had all my terminal gear, just took me awhile to get it untangled
And the wifes was a 30", my other small cat wasn't measured but I would guess about 28" maybe 10-12lbs

Nice channels! You are lucky to get your tackle back. I don't think I've gotten one back yet that a cat took to Davey Jones locker!

Good pics, thanks for sharing.
