. What do you have to do different to catch the big cats? I'm not interested in keepin the big ones... I'd just like to fight one at least one time in my life!


Do exactly what you were doing... but do it earlier in the year, starting late March, thru April and May. From my experience below Chickamauga, bigger cats have moved out of tailrace areas right now. You're still liable to stick one anytime, but in general bigger fish move into the prime areas first... then once they move out, smaller fish take over.

And yes, sometimes bigger baits mean bigger fish. However the biggest catfish I've ever seen (120 lbs. caught on a trotline) ate a piece of hotdog about the size of you thumbnail, so you never really know. The one thing a big bait will do is weed out the little guys so your big bait stays in the water until a big one comes along.

Thanks for the tips. I'll definately get out there earlier next year. I think I'm gettin cat fever pretty bad! I have fun with these 2 lb fish... I can only imagine what a big boy would fight like

Yeah I've seen it in the fishin guide but theres not ANY water around me where its OK to keep catfish. I've gotten to the point where I will eat some cats from the water once in a while..no more than once every two months.... if that. I love catfish and its a shame we have such good fishin here but our water is so contaminated we can't even eat hardly anything from them besides bluegill.
