yeah so i got bored last night an started watching my old infisherman catfish video.... an yeah wow they were catching big shovels in the river on jigs in feb when the water was only 35.. i know a guy that used to do the same thing an catch o bunch of em an drop them off in my home park
I have a fella that fishes here and he gets shovels all winer in the river with 10 inch spoons! I saw a video of him gettting 60 and 70 pounders in January! I am hoping we hook up this winter and check it out. i was able to see where he was fishing just waiting on making time to o to it!
If you find there wintering hole in the cold, you can catch one right after another. In the mouth to!!!! They always face upcurrent. So just drag anything with a hook on the bottom and bam!!!! I read this artical in a catfishing magizine. They were debating if they were acctualy bitting or getting snagged. I know they will bite in the winter. Especailly the smaller ones. I got desperate one year and fished a pond by my house. I took my portable fish finder and found them. They were in a thermacline about 8 feet deep in 14 feet of water. Near the deepest part of the lake. I marked some huge ones laying in some holes on the bottom. All I did was put my bobber at 9 feet and put a crappie head on there and slowlly troled through the school. I could actually feel the bait going over them. I caught a couple,but it took hours and really wasnt worth it. I like to fish for trout in the winter. And has any heard of lakes around here stocking burbot in the winter? I think Tanglewood used to. The are a blast to catch and great eating. Ugly as sin though!
