Went out in hopes for catfish today and got the skunk. Never targeted them other than fooling around so it’ll be interesting to see if I can get some for the table.

 

What’s everyone else been up to?

Best way to find them is to fish for stripers.  Lol

 

Seriously if you want to get on big cats use a live bait white perch, gills etc.  The big ones are apex predators and will crush a 6" bluegill

I’ll give it a try. I know where people are getting decent cats within a 5 minute walk from me so I’ll try there sometime either today or tomorrow.

Depending on depth and your level of activity you can use a big float or fish finder rig.

 

Hook the 'gill through the back and use a water bottle (with a wrap of tape to secure) or large foam float.  Try at dusk.  If a big cat come calling the bait will start going crazy to get away which is pretty exciting 

 

Otherwise a ff rig does the job and casts much better

Taking the kids to a park off the southern Potomac. Bringing a rod and a gear bag to see what may be biting

Got into some nice cats down Chester river way. Sure beats watching fishing videos. Ospreys, eagles, herons, cormorants, hawks, ducks, eagles, galore. 

Only heard the owls. Just nice to get some pullage.

good to hear people are getting out:hooked:

Pretty calm conditions right now, thinking I might throw on the waders and throw 1/8oz spinners at some WP. :laugh:

what are the perch hitting?

I’ve had constant supply of perch on grass shrimp and small spinners this past week around Solomon’s.
