May 3, 2017 - Bullfrog Kayak Catfish

E-mail Print PDF
I had no luck in the bay, but my handheld finder did say there were lots of fish hanging out on the edge of the ledge where water dropped from 35 ft to 75 ft at the mouth of the inlet just to the east of the north buoy field. I dropped spoons and anchovies down to them but got nothing.
I moved into the inlet and caught smallmouth, largemouth, and stripped bass on a chartreuse 1/4oz tube jig allowed to slide down the wall.
Catfish were jumping everywhere and I ended up catching a few of these as well. And one larger catfish that pulled me into the rock wall and tried his hardest to pull my kayak under. It was pretty exciting to say the least. The old girl could pull and just wanted back down to the bottom.
Thanks again for your reports and your time that you took to respond to my questions.
I'll shoot you a note on any info I get so you can pass it along to others if you deem it worthy of good report.
Tight lines and Big Fat Stripers,
Mike Jensen
